Endoscopy and steroids

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I jus left the GI doctor and he scheduled an endoscopy with biopsy on Monday. How much time should have passed after a stereo shot for the results to be accurate? I had a steroid shot for a horrible rash on August 4. I can't find this information anywhere. Thank you

I think you might be okay:

Make sure you have been on a gluten diet for at least two weeks prior to the endoscopy.  If you went Gluten Free, tell your GI.
