Hi, My 5 year old daughter goes for her biopsy on january 29, 2004 both blood tests came back posative for celiac disease. Her symptoms are usually diarrhea and vomiting this month she has been doing better but I noticed her stool is almost white and it floats when I told the doctor this I thought I saw some concern on her face is this just another symptom of celiac?

Thanks,

Hillary

Not sure about the symptoms. I would just keep an eye on it and if she is getting better on gluten-free diet not worry about it. If it persists, then explore it further.

Curious why the biopsy is necessary if blood tests are positive. Is she eating a gluten-free already?

Hillary, oops, I already replied to you on the endoscopy report thread before I noticed this post, so see that thread for my input! I hope you have a good day!

Thank you Sarah. No ronni hasnt started the diet yet in fact her doctor hasn't mentioned it to me she said we will discuss it after her biopsy what I have learned about the diet is through the message board. In regards to having a biopsy I thought it was standard procedure to have one after the blood tests. I just hope she'll be okay and Im concerned on the damage thats being done while we wait for the biopsy.

It's only 9 days away so I wouldn't worry about it too much, you could cut down on her intake of gluten but she really needs to be ingest gluten to have the biopsy come out right too.

We go in with our son tommorow for his endoscopy, he has not had blood tests yet.

As far as the stools go.. pale floating stools are a sign of malsorption and fat in the stools. If you want to bulk her up try giving her pediasure if she can keep it down. Otherwise just hang on till the 29th and we are always here to back you up!

I didn't think it was standard procedure to have a biopsy if the blood test proved positive. I can't see the point of it other then causing more pain for someone not being on a gluten-free diet.

I may be biased though, because I am self diagnosed. I was told I had IBS and went off gluten and began to feel better in 2 weeks....

    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
