Testing Questions For 2 Yr Old Dd
Posted 16 July 2004 - 06:46 AM
I had been told that the testing would require scope and I was not ready to do at that time. Didn't get info on blood testing. Now that I have more info and she is older, I want to pursue testing.
But we have been gluten-free for about 9 months, though there is the possibility that she was getting some cross-contamination from cast-iron pans and a few wooden implements (still figuring all of this out!), she has had some symptoms lately that make me think that she could have gotten some gluten.
So I don't know if a blood test would show any antibodies at this point.
And I keep reading about how only 5 labs are accurate for blood tests, which labs?
And how do I make sure that the right tests are done, what should they be testing for?
If I have to put my DD back on gluten, for how long, and how much gluten?
This is hard because I don't want to make her sick if I can help it, but for preschool and with the constant battle with my family over food when DD goes to their houses, it would help to have a concrete diagnosis.
