What Are The Chances?
0

7 posts in this topic

My 5 year old daughter was recently diagnosed after positive bloodwork and then confirmed with endoscopy. However, I also have 4 other children who the GI dr said to have tested. What are the chances that more than 1 of my 5 will be positive for this disease?

Thanks in advance!

Chances are good. And both you and their father should be tested too.

I was told my children had a 50 % chance of carrying the gene.  But that was based on the information that I am 4/4 alleles for Celiac.  I would say you might need more information.

Well we went ahead and had the blood draws for them done yesterday, I am just trying to gauge the likelihood. My husband and I haven't been tested yet. I'm a bit overwhelmed but we see a dietician at childrens hospital on the 24th so I'm trying to educate myself as much as possible by that time.

Just because a person has the gene(s) doesn't mean that they will develop celiac.

It's great that you are finding this early on in your kids so that they have a chance at a healthy future.

If your kids test negative, keep in mind that they should be retested every opulent of years because celiac disease can develop at any time and often goes symptomless.

Good luck with the tests.
