IgG anti-gliadin antibody - strong positive
IgA anti-gliadin antibody - weak positive
Anti-endomysial - negative
tissue transglutaminase - negative
Total IgA - normal
Other abnormal tests:
IgE egg whites - positive
IgG casein - strong positive
creatinine - low
white blood cell count - low
We've seen the pediatrician, gastroenterologist, and allergist. All have given different advice (some conflicting).
Because symptoms have not resolved, the pediatrician recommends eliminating wheat to see if symptoms resolve. If symptoms resolve, we'll put wheat back into his diet and do the small intestine biopsy.
Please provide any opinions about his blood test results.
Wouldn't it make more sense to do the biopsy before we just try eliminating wheat?
Thanks in advance.
