What To Ask For?
Posted 25 October 2010 - 07:09 PM
Can someone tell me what blood tests I need to ask for. My dd has Celiac, and I highly suspect my youngest does also. I have never been tested. But am due for a regular appt. so I thought I would ask my doc. to run a panel, just to see. I want to make sure she runs the correct ones. Especially since I don't have any classic symptoms of Celiac, I may have a hard time getting her to run even the basics. I know it can often times be genetic and since my husband is Native American, its much more likely to have come thru my bloodlines.

Tissue Transglutamas Iga & Igg
Antigliadin Iga & Igg
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) This is the newest test and is supposed to be more sensitive.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.
