Question About Testing Whole Family
Posted 04 May 2004 - 06:10 PM
Some of you may remember, that my 2 yr old dd was just confirmed via blood tests that she probably has Celiac. I am now wondering about my other kids. One of my children I suspect might have it, although he does not have any GI symptoms.
The blood tests that suggested Celiac in my dd was Anti-gliadin IgA and IgG. In the meantime, I am putting my whole family on a gluten free diet, but now I am wondering.. should I go ahead and get the whole family tested? What tests should I ask for specifically so that we don't all have to be stuck 2 and 3 times in the case of inconclusive results? ALSO... my dr is out of town for a few weeks! We have only been gluten free for 2 days.. should I put the whole family (except my 2 yr old) back on gluten right now and wait weeks to be tested? Feeling a little irritated that my dr is not around right now. For insurance reasons, we can't switch drs easily.
