Hi my daughter had had two blood tests showing positive results and my Dr referred her to get a biopsy. However the pediatrics now want her to get a gene test. Is this normal procedure? It seemed her bloods were pretty conclusive that she had it. Thoughts much appreciated.

The only thing I can think of is that they might be trying to spare your daughter a biopsy.  If the genetic test is positive, and two positive blood tests, then maybe they could give a positive dx without a biopsy?  I'm just guessing though.  Can you call the pediatrician and ask for clarification?
