In Topic: Question About Biopsy

That's what I thought. I had someone tell me today that being dairy free would impact the biopsy. I didn't think they were right. Thank you.

Hi there Nora. Your right, it is Ferritin. Yes, I think we do have the home tests here, but I haven't really looked into them. I really have no idea what version of the gliadin test was done. It just says Gliadin IgG, and Gliadin IgA. I didn't know that some labs generalize the tests and just call it Gliadin Ab. That's interesting.

Just a small update on the blood work I had done last week. Turns out I have very low iron 6 (10-291) and low hemoglobin 118 (120-160). It will still be a month before I get the celiac test results back. Maybe it's just a coincidence, or maybe the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit together.

mom2, we live in Ontario. Actually, I live in a border city to the USA, it's just that the closest childrens hospital has a huge wait list. We must have a shortage of pediatric GI's here. I can check to see if my son can be put on a cancellation list.
Cara, so your son had high IgG too? So it is possible to be celiac with a high IgG (and positive biopsy)?It kind of bothers me that they didn't do a total IgA for my son. I do think that based on his symptoms and the high IgG, he is at the very least gluten intolerant. The wait is just to see the GI. I'm not sure they will schedule the endoscopy without seeing the GI first, but I can check. It is hard feeding him foods that are causing problems for him. In fact, he was up at 3am this morning with diarreha and pain. I really feel bad for him if he does have Celiac. He already has a peanut and pea allergy, so we already are more limited in what kind of foods he can have. I have been looking at some of the store bought gluten free foods, in case we need them and even some of those he cant have if they contain nuts or even chick pea flour. We will have to be very careful in that respect.
Thanks for the responses,I guess I feel a little better knowing that I am on the right track with all of this.

Well, I called my doctor today to ask for celiac testing and he told me to come right in to get the lab form. Just had the test done so we shall see what the results are. I will be phoning my kids pediatrician on Monday to have them tested as well.
