Will The Doctor Insist On A Biopsy?

25 September 2012 - 05:05 PM

My husband was diagnosed with Celiacs Disease in February. My 6 year old daughter has no symptoms, however, I asked her pediatrician to test just to put my mind at ease. Unfortunately her results came back positive, they were:

Tissue Transglutamin IgA - 121 (>20 is positive)
Deam Gliadin Pep Abs - 31 (>20 is positive)

She has an appointment with the ped. GI next month. My question is - based on your experience will the doctor pressure me to do a biopsy?
