Do I Need A Repeat Biopsy?
0

2 posts in this topic

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.
