Need Help Asap

2)My 2 yr old only had the anti-gliadins tested (she didn't have EmA or anything else)... should I have her tested for EmA too? Will it make a difference that she has been gluten-free since Sunday?
3)The nurse said that insurance might not cover b/c my other kids don't really have symptoms.. she would put "family history" on there and see what happens. I wonder how expensive these tests are? Anybody know?
Sorry for so many questions! I need help before the dr appts tomorrow!

I'm not sure about your insurance, but all the tests for my kids were covered by Harvard Pilgrim (in MA) based on 'family history'.
My kids' blood tests included: IGA, IGG and tTG.
One of my children's blood tests came back positive, and her biopsy was also covered by insurance. I don't know what EMA is...sorry!
Good Luck, let us know how it goes,
Diagnosed 3/03 (Positive Biopsy/Negative Blood Tests)
Daughter dx 12/03 (Positive biopsy/Positive blood tests);
Two sons (Negative blood tests); One on gluten-free diet (6/04) ... cured his persistent, severe headaches.
