I was diagnosed in June, and I decided to get my oldest 2 kids tested. My daughter (5) has complained of stomach pains and issues for the past year. My son (9) has no issues. Ironically, her tests were all normal, but my son's tests came back abnormal.

Being new and not really doing anything but asking the pedi to run a celiac panel, I didn't know what they ran. (I can't find my lab slip to see what was run on me!) Here are his results . . .

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) <7 (normal is 33-202)
Endomysial IgA <1:10 (normal <1:10)
TTG IgA 1.1 (<4 negative)

His only abnormal test is the first one, which is really low. His pedi called a pedi GI specialist who said the low IgA will throw off the other 2 tests, and they asked her to run the IgG tests. So we are waiting on those results.

Everything I have read say that a low IgA can increase their chance of developing an autoimmune disorder, and since mom has Celiac, it's not a reach to figure that out!!

I am very anxiously waiting on the other results. I just wanted to see if anyone had more experience and information on this while I patiently wait!!!
