WorriedMum added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseCeliac Symptoms In 3 Yr Old, Pos Igg Neg Iga/ttgCan anyone share experiences or offer any advice.
My daughter is 3.5yrs old
She has complained of regular stomach ache for the last 18 months and has constant bouts of loose stools
Since 6 months she has dropped from the 25 centile to between 2nd and 9th for both height and weight
She suffers with ketotic hypoglycemia and is allergic to eggs
My mother has celiac disease
We have finally managed to get the docs to take blood tests.
They first did EMA tests IGA and IGG. IGA was negative and IGG positive
They then did TTG IGA which was also negative (1.2).
They told me that IGA levels were fine and iron levels are good (14)
Their feeling is that this concludes that my daughter does not have celiac disease
I am worried that this is not conclusive and from what I have read, small children do often get negative results. They have offered no explanation as to why her IGG was positive
Has anyone encountered anything similar. We are in the UK so in the NHS process which is slow and laborious in getting to see specialists
