Hi Bobbie J (is it Jo??),
Why not just get the antibody tests done? Then if those are elevated, get the endoscopy? If it's a matter of insurance/cost, I understand. Personally, I felt much better knowing I had it without a doubt after my endoscopy.
As someone else said, there are good reasons not to do the endoscopy. For me it's the misery I'd have to go through while eating gluten for several MONTHS before the test. And I don't need the endoscopy to tell me "without a doubt" that I have it, I already know without a doubt that I do. For me it's pretty simple: eat gluten = feel miserable; don't eat gluten = have my life back.
