My PA ran tests on me 5 years ago because I had requested it having GI symptoms and bloating pain. They called me then and told me it was negative and I just said ok. Well since my son just got diagnosed I wanted to see my actual test.

 

I realize just now when I got them it says Celiac Disease Comp Final, infant.

 

ttg antibody, IGA <3      *<5 neg

 

glaidin anti IGA 6          *<11 neg

 

IGA, serum 340              81-463 normal

 

 

Why would they do an infant test? Should I ask for a retest now since he has been diagnosed now?

 

 

I still have major symptoms. I went gluten free a few days ago when they diagnosed my son and put him on gluten-free diet. I am already feeling a tiny bit better as far as bloat goes.

It would be easier for you to go back on it now and be retested than waiting and doing a gluten challenge later.

Should I even worry about it or press it... or just go gluten-free and forget about it?

Did they even run right tests before?
