Follow Up Testing And Doctors Visits

Recommended Posts

My daughter was diagnosed in feb 2006. She was diagnosed within six monthsso there was not much damage to her villi or intestines. She has been for a follow up with the gastro pediatrician and is really doing great. My question is do we need to acontinue to go for more follow up visits or does she need another endoscopy as a part of a routine follow up? We are close to nyc and i was wondering if she should see a celiac specialist at Columbia(I have heard that they have a whole department dedicated to celiac treatment).

If she is feeling better and her antibody levels have gone down then she probably doesn't need a follow-up endoscopy. Seeing her GI every year for a Celiac panel is probably a good idea. If she still wasn't feeling well or her antibody levels hadn't gone down, they might want to do a follow up endoscopy.
