My daughter was diagnosed with having celiac disease 6 years ago. My son, husband and myself all had the celiac panel done and everything came back negative. My question is should I be tested again? I seem to be having a lot of tummy issues, not really sure as to what is causing it. I'm not necessary saying that it is celiac but it's definitely something. Help!

I've heard that its been recommended for first degree relatives to be tested every year or so to keep an eye out for it.

I too have heard it's a good idea for first degree relatives to test every 2-3 years even if they have no symptoms. If symptoms are cropping up, i would definitely try testing again.

 

If the test is negative, you might want to consider going gluten-free anyways. I am a celiac but my three boys tested negative in spite of two of them having some symptoms; the whole house went gluten-free and their symptoms went away in short order. Just something to consider... :)

 

And welcome to the board.
