I spoke to my doctor yesterday and we decided to get his dx on paper for the future. He is calling in the lab work to a doc friend of his locally. But he has no idea what tests to ask for. We are going to start on the blood work first. If you know the names of the tests please let me know. Also my husband and I are going to get tested, we both are showing signs. Are there different tests for adults?Thank you in advanced.

Amy-
Your little one has been gluten-free, therefore not producing the antibodies that the blood work tests for. Having the blood work is pointless unless you put him back on gluten, and it would have to be for a extended period of time. It is a waste of money to run the tests if the little guy isn't on gluten at the time of testing and a certain period of time before the tests.

And the infant is too young to be tested accurately. Even if he were eating gluten his system wouldn't produce the antibodies. Don't waste your time testing him.

Tests are the same for everybody. Total Iga, Iga, Igg, and Ttg or endymosial (sp?) antibody. Your doctor should be able to double check with whatever lab and they'd know this.
