  1. Thanks for your fast replies. I will update once I learn the results.
  2. My daughter has been suffering from nausea and diarrhea for years. We recently had bloodwork done and her Celiac screen came back "moderately positive" (score of 45?). The GI doctor recommended an endoscopy, even though we've had one previously. We believe the previous endoscopy came back negative because the previous GI only performed one or very few biopsies and just missed it. Immediately upon completing the recent endoscopy, while waiting in recovery, the GI doctor told us he didn't find anything and that she didn't have Celiac, but maybe IBS. Doesn't a pathologist have to examine the biopsies under a microscope to make that diagnosis? Does this doctor know what he is talking about?
