In Topic: Failure To Thrive

My son has had 4 pulpectomoies and of course the dentist blames the breast feeding. I come from a long line of digestive issues in my family most of my bro/sis has some sort of tummy issue as do my kids I have been to the hospital with at least 3 of them in horrible tummy pain only to find out they were extremely constipated we also have food allergies and horrible eczema. I am not only trying to figure out his issues, but also my own. Which has been a ok g process with no answers yet and it's been over 2 years.

We got his CBC back and his blood work was good that was the blood work is pediatrician ordered I am sure the GI will do more i am scared they will want to do a feeding tube. Just hoping to get some answers and get everyone healthy

The lady at the lab is misinformed. It is commonly mentioned in studies and medical literature that steroids can influence celiac testing.

That's what I thought I hate that there is such conflicting info out there. Hoping the steroids don't effect the test. Having some sort if answer would be great

The lady at the lab said steriods have no effect in the celiac panel not so sure I believe that, but we will see. My mother has crohns and all my brothers and sister have some sort of stomache problem. The more I think about the symptoms I would not be surprised if my mother had Celiacs

Thankfully I am still eating gluten I knew that If more tests were run I would have to keep eating it. Just not sure what tests to ask for
to be run so tired of the dr's just looking at me and saying sorry have no clue what is wrong, but here are some steroids to help for a minute. I have been on and off steroids for almost 2 years it is the only thing that helps. I have the typical rash that looks like dh and then I also have a rash around my eyes that itches really had and hurts my eyes crack and bleed and the skin flakes and peals it is awful it is also around my mouth some mornings i wake and my lips are swollen. I have been to an allergist and the IGA blood test was high I also am allergic to black pepper, oregano, cinammon, almonds, apples, bananas, oysters, plums. I have taken these out of my diet and I still have no change in my rashes.

The tests the dr ordered are
Celiac disease panel

If I am on oral steriods will it effect the test?
