Izabella added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsTesting Positive For Transglutaminase, Now What?Hello everyone, we are new to the board. I've joined because my daughter, Izabella, 4, was diagnosed (at an overseas military clinic) with Celiac desease after 2 years of severe constipation and sickness that all headed and landed her in the hospital where I was finally able to get someone to do a blood test. The only thing I am aware of is that the test came back positive for tissue transglutaminase IgG/IgA, if that doesnt seem right, I'm copying from a doctors note.
She tested negative for Gliadin antibodies and rye and wheat allergies.
Can anyone shed some light on any of this for me? No one here seems to know anything about it except to tell me to stop giving her food containing gluten. I'm not sure how the constipation works in all this? Should she be seeing a specialist or at least someone who knows more? I've been pushing for a gastrology referral, but with the language barrier with us in Europe, it is sometimes difficult, also, I'm not sure how much testing I'm comfortable with them doing on my child (invasive).
Any and all help is much appreciated!
