Hello again,
As I mentioned in my initial post, my 6 year old son had a weak positive ttg iga (negative dgp iga and igg). He has been back for the repeat bloodwork (no results for him or his 11 year old brother yet), and we were referred to a Ped. GI. I received the call today that we are booked for Feb 19..... then I started getting stressed out.... what happens at the initial appt? what hapens if the scope comes back negative--would you remove gluten from his diet?
Thank you, thamk you, thank you! You guys are so great!!

Is it the endoscopy you are booked for on the 19th, or a consultation?

It is just the consultation. They said they are booking endospcopies about a month or two ahead. :)
