Biopsy Needed For 3 Year Old? in Parents, Friends and Loved Ones of Celiacs Posted April 25, 2005 · Report to Admin Ok - try to respond to all the lovely people who replied. Kati thank you for the welcome. No gene tests have been done. thanks for the info - the more the better! (Your name pops up a lot you are very forth giving with the obvious plethora of info you have! yah you) CarolynM- yuk- what an experience. I'm glad you went gluten-free anyway and see improvements! Good luck!! tarnalberry, I thought hmmm, food for thought ( I never thought of that) thanks. And then I read taweavmo3, and between the two of you I think we really have a lot to think about now. what good advice! taweavmo3, thank you. I really appreciate the note from a kidred soul. It sounds like the procedure isn't too bad, but maybe worth it any way. Both reasons are very sound to me. And I'm a special ed teacher so I should have thought of that! Will power - not so much or wouln't be 20 # OVER weight. I think that you're right - the conclusive dx would probably be more motivating to keep to the diet. How old is big brother? My other one is 5. Do you all go somewhat gluten-free or just your daughter? Thanks again! I will be sure to check in here frequently now I think - meeting nice folks does that!
