  1. Thanks for all the replies. The doctor told me that he considers the celiac blood test for children under 5 to be very unreliable and so he's strongly urging the biopsy. (If it's so unreliable, why do it??) I might allow the biopsy just to rule out anything in addition to celiac... he mentioned ulcerative colitis and Crohn's.
  2. My 10 month old daughter was tested for celiac... several of the markers came back negative, but one returned positive. I'm meeting with the pediatric gastro doctor tomorrow, but I'm just wondering if anyone has an opinion on the necessity of putting her through a biopsy. Isn't a positive blood test fairly reliable? My pediatrican insists she needs the biopsy, too, for a definitive diagnosis, but the thought of her going through this makes me queasy. How tough a procedure is this for an infant? Thanks. Eileen
