A couple more quick items...it is common for insurance to deny capsule endoscopy, but you don't need that for confirmation of Celiac Disease. It is usually used if there are ongoing issues with Celiac...it kind of suprises me your dr even suggested it.

You shouldn't need to fast for the Celiac Panel Blood test...I have had it & all 4 of my children & none of us had to fast. Your blood work that you mentioned that was taken earlier very likely may be normal. Most clinics don't routinely do the Celiac Panel, so I highly doubt that would have been taken.

Personally, I would like to see all children routinely get tested for Celiac Disease at one of the school well-visit checks...especially since it starts with a simple blood test.

Anyways...just wanted to add those other thoughts...
