No Need For Biopsy

Recommended Posts

I am mainly concerned with checking him for diabetes annually and also testing his tTG levels.

Your regular doctor can do this. Most GI doctors don't think of or look for celiac in the US. If you find one who is not going to ask for a challenge and biopsy you have found a real needle in a haystack. If the above are the main concerns IMHO save your money and time, a GI doc isn't going to help you with those. He is proven by bloodwork and dietary exclusion that is enough, you don't need a doctors permission to keep him gluten-free. If the concern is school you regular ped, the one who had the positive blood test, will most likely give a doctors note. After a bit of time on the diet the changes in your child will be enough to confirm his diagnosis.
