Has Anyone Had Negative Ttg, Ema And Test Positive On Biopsy?

03 September 2009 - 07:25 PM

I am looking to see how many parents have children that tested negative to blood work and positive with a biopsy. My son is 10 seees a gastro in boston and is going to have a biopsy in november.
He has constitutional growth delay by 2 years. He weighs 56lb.( he gained 4lbs since Apil 20th till now from adding boost drink to his diet 1 drink a day. From age 9 to 10 he gained less than 1 pound. He has all classic symptoms of celiac. His gastro wants to give him 3 boost drinks a day 1 with every meal. If i stop giving him them he losses weight. When he was a baby he would projectile vomit his formula and my breast milk. I switched him to prosobee (soy)and he never vomited his bottle again.Any suggestions on what other tests to ask for??? pam

My Sons Celiac Test Results

23 April 2009 - 05:10 AM

My son was tested by a top childrens hospital. His Symptoms are small stature bone age 2 years behind his age. He is 10. He has a vitamin d difiencey, His teeth are discolored, He can not put weight on. Weight has been 49-51lbs for past 3 years. His pediatrician told me its just constitutional growth delay and he is fine that he is in the 5th percentile and its normal for him. He is allergic to all grasses, trees, weeds. The Childrens hospital did a TTG-IGA, EMA-IGA both were negative and a Iga which his result was 78 normal range was 70-335. I went to see gi yesterday and she said she was gonna do a rast test for wheat and other foods and that i should try a boost drink for kids before bed for extra calories. I have to go back in three months and she said then we can see were he is as far as growth and talk about a endoscopy. So we get home and i decided to pull my husbands old ttg test FROM 2007 and he tested a 6 on his ttg-weak positive and his doctor had told us he was negative. With discovering my husband was positive do you think it would be unreasonable to demand a endoscopy on my son. Any suggestions. Has anyone had there kid test negative on ema, igg and still have celiac?
