Repeat Endoscopy?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was diagnosed almost 9 months ago. In spite of major effort, I am still having "glutening" episodes... I just returned from Florida and am really really sick with stomach pain after eating out (supposedly off a gluten free menu) I was wondering if/when a repeat endoscopy should be done...

Dr. Peter Green, in his book, CELIAC DISEASE - A HIDDEN EPIDEMIC, recommends a followup endoscopy in 2-3 years after diagnosis, but in cases where the diet isn't working it should be done sooner, or more frequently. There is much more information in the book. Good luck.
