Share Your Thoughts: Follow Up Biopsies for Celiac Disease

Dec. 7, 2016

Join the AGA Community discussion on this important issue, which was recently highlighted in AGA Perspectives.

Our recent AGA Perspectives feature article examined the hotly debated topic of routine follow up biopsies for diagnosed celiac patients. Now that the authors of the debate, Benjamin Lebwohl, MD, MS, and Daniel Leffler, MD, MS, have shared their perspectives, let us know your thoughts on this issue by joining the continuing discussion in AGA Community. 

In addition to the authors, Joseph Murray, MD, shared a post on the networking forum in response to the debate:

"This is an area of obviously evolving knowledge and experience and questions such as how many and where exactly biopsies should be taken to reassess and indeed how these biopsies need to be graded," Dr. Murray noted.
