3 year old son has had symptoms of coeliac disease (bloating, tummy ache, diarrhoea) starting early 2012.
*27 June 2012. Blood tests done. TTG was 262, DGP 170.
*31 Aug 2012. Upper endoscopy carried out. Biopsy "normal" Marsh stage 1/2
*1 Sept-10 Sept 2012. Gluten free diet. Gastroenterologist contacts us with results of biopsy, advises us to restart gluten, and a follow up biopsy is booked for 21 Dec 2012.
*6 Dec 2012. Blood tests repeated. TTG now only 54, DGP down to only 77.
*21 Dec 2012. Awaiting biopsy.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it normal for TTG to fluctuate by so much?
Apart from the 10 days in early September, he has been on a gluten-containing diet this whole time.
The only other factor I can think of is that the first half of the year was quite stressful for our 3 year old. His brother was born in Feb, and he also started pre-school.
Thanks in advance for your help on this one!
