Jennifer, Two of my daughters (ages 4 and 6) have just been diagnosed with celiac. The doctor told me they would be completely sedated, as opposed to an adult who is more or less put into a very relaxed state, during an endoscopy. Complete sedation is a worry for me. We've switched to gluten free based on the blood tests alone. There is a lot of information to be learned and this website, as well as others, offers insights and experiences of many people. Best of luck. Lisa
Hello, Two of my three daughters have just received positive blood test results for celiac. We've yet to meet with a specialist, but our pediatrician said a biospy would need to be done. I wondered if anyone had any thoughts or experience with this; my daughters are 4 and 6 and I really do not want to put them through a biospy if we don't need to. Is a postive blood test result enough? We plan on going gluten free regardless. I appreciate any responses.
