Frequently Asked Questions


Once I’ve been biopsy-diagnosed to confirm celiac disease, do I ever need to have another biopsy done?

Provided you received a clear diagnosis and aren’t experiencing issues there’s no reason to have another biopsy. Even though you may not notice any symptoms from consuming gluten, the disease is still active and can lead to severe complications over time if gluten is sneaking into your diet. Therefore, we recommend annual testing to check for elevated antibodies in your blood. July, 2012
