    Thank you so much for this.  I will ask specifically about how many samples they will take.  I live five minutes from Stanford University Medical Center ... hopefully a good doc would do this procedure.  Very good healthcare here.
    Yes, I saw on a post what you said about being DGP positive and not IgA positive and wondered if I could be the same (inferring this is why my tests came back "equivocal" ... and from your information, I am piecing together that one can have Celiac from having DGP-positive alone).  When you say they can check your liver and pancreas too .... do you mean they can do other tests (other than endoscopy) ...
    I think they will probably argue (rightfully) to repeat that blood test but I agree that I need to get the endoscopy this time.  Yes, I am concerned about the dehydration.  They did a blood panel too and they said they could tell I was not dehydrated at that point .... but that was two full weeks ago!  I am worried I am going to run out of "juice" and land in the hospital like you did.   ...
