My 12 yr old dd is being scoped on Thursday. The last scope in December showed celiac and EE in her esphagus. They are going to recheck her EE this Thursday? Should I ask for another biopsy for celiac? Her antibody levels were normal after 6 months. I am paying 20% and don't want more lab tests than needed. Just wasn't sure if there was another need for anything celiac related again.
I wouldn't think the celiac biopsy would need to be repeated, especially since the antibody levels have come down.
