If you have been gluten-free for years and have been able to gain weight, I don’t see a reason for an endoscopy and biopsy, unless your doctor is looking for something else.
Endometriosis is found on the intestines, not visible with endoscopy.
@becsbuddy shared a link from Mayo Clinic- there is a lot of important information that also could help your relatives with GI issues.

I recommend following the "GERD TRIGGERS" entry on Webmd to help with gastric issues. Celiac affects lower digestive system, and if it is annoyed, they will see it and be able to prescribe help for you after endoscopy. It is not that invasive and is a good baseline for the future, if nothing else. You should definitely get the endometriosis treated as well — apparently it can be taken care of in the same endoscopy procedure (check with Dr on this) Here's info: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7882623/
