  1. All the report says is specimen consist of four fragments of tan soft tissues measuring 0.3 x 0.2 x 0.1cm. The small bowel mucosa is within normal limits.
  2. Mushroom- Thank you for your reply and all the info. I guess I do have a lot to learn, starting with the correct pronunciation of the disease! I agree that my doctors didn't seem to know much about celiac. I got copies of my results and there were four biopsies taken- not sure if that is sufficient. Most disappointing is that the doctor that did my biopsies wrote that he recommended a follow up at the GI clinic, but I was never informed of that. Thanks for the list of blood test my daughter should get. I am hopeful that I found a good pediatric GI, that will be much more thorough than mine was. At least I am more informed now and know what to ask for. I'm wondering if my daughter is officially diagnosed, is it necessary for me to be? I have been gluten-free for almost a year, so it seems testing would be impossible, right? I really don't think I could eat gluten again, the thought of it turns my stomach!
  3. Hi, I apologize in advance if this post gets a little long, but I am in the process o try to figuring out if my 3 year old daughter has celiacs and If I might too. 6 years ago I was tested for celiacs. My blood work came back with what my dr. Called a "mix bag" for celiacs. I got biopsies taken which came back negative. I was told I didn't have it, no follow up, no nothing. I regret not perusing a more definite diagnosis, but I was young and trusted what the doctors told me. 2 years later after the birth of my daughter I began experiencing a lot of strange health problem ( physical and mental). Dr. Couldn't find anything wrong (I was not retested for celiacs). At the advise of my therapist I decided to try a gluten free diet. It helped a lot, so I concluded that I had gluten sensitivity. I mostly feel better, but will get returning symptoms occasionally, especially after eating out (CC I assume). Most recently my daughter started showing symptoms of celiacs and her PCP ran blood test. We were told she might indeed have celiacs. We have an appointment with a GI in 2 weeks, but I was wondering what you kind people make of our blood test results? My results Total iga- 64 flagged as low. Range: low-81 high 463 Anti-gliadin ab, igg- 20 flagged as high. Range: low-0 high-19 Gliadin iga ab- 6 normal. Range low 0 high 19 My daughter's results Total iga 36 (no range given) TTGAB-iga 16( high) >or = 4 antibodies detected Gliadin iga 4 (normal) <20 antibodies Thank you so much for your time!
