In Topic: Symptoms Dormant During Teen Years?

Thank you both for your answers. It is good to know that not everyone comes
back positive. It does make sense that most negatives won't visitif you get a negative result
you're not going to spend much time here.

This whole thing has been so frustrating. It seems my entire family is in denial about this disease
and the issues it can cause. I just wish I could find a Dr. that was knowlegeable that they
might listen to and that actually know something about Celiac. It took my school nurse and me to diagnose my older daughter. My husband had so many of the same symptoms growing up but still denies that it's an issue for him. And with my younger daughter, her biggest issues are irritability and lack of focus which could just be her personality. :-) None of them believe that this can really cause them damage.

Okay, no more ranting. Thanks for validating what I already thought I knew. :-)

They are back on the diet starting Sunday. Monday is going to be a long day.

Best to you too (two).

So, how confident are you in entrolab tests?

We have had such a hard finding a dr. with knowledge so had the tests...but most of my
family is very skeptical.

You are NOT way off base. The doctor can order a celiac panel. The problem is so many doctors are misinformed about this disease. They think it is rare when it really isn't.

From what you have described your daughter has a lot of the symptoms. You might want to take her to a pedi gastro dr. who is knowledgable about celiac....otherwise they will probably say it is IBS or due to stress...(been there,
done that).

Good luck.
