Who would I asked for these test? The GI or ped? The GI has said he has ran everything he can run, now we just wait ad see. We already took him off gluten, but it has only been a day and a half.
Any doctor can order...I'd go with the Ped.
DGP-IgG Deamidated Gliadin Peptide IgG
I would have him/her run the DGP IgA as well. Since your child tested IgA deficient..the test will likely be negative, but if positive is very telling.
Hang in there...the testing mechanisms coupled with our doctors lack of complete understanding of same is frustrating.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
