Hi, I am new here. My husb was DX 2 weeks ago with Celiac (his mom has it too) and this board has been very valuable in educating me since I do the shopping and cooking in the family. Well, I took my 8 yr old son in for testing tuesday and the Dr called last night and said that his blood test came back "suspicious" and the antibodies were high. He will confir next week with the Gastroenterologist to see what he thinks. (This is the same Gastroenterologist that my mother in law and husband see). From your experiences with your own kids, do you have an opinion of what high antibodies mean?? Could it be a sign of something else?? He did not tell me what the actual #'s were. Does anyone know of the acceptable levels? My husband has no symptoms of celiac disease, but the Dr has recommends a gluten-free diet to prevent it. My son has no symptoms either, except he bulches frequently. I am really afraid the dr will call back with a positive diagnosis. Should I ask for further testing?
I appreciate any info you can send my way. THANKS!!
