Question About Test Results For Toddler

28 February 2013 - 09:47 AM

I have a question about my DD's test results, hoping someone will have some insight :)
Dd is 17 months old and grain-free(for approx. 1yr) due to constipation issues (I recently allowed her TTO try some gluten as a food challenge and she was immediately co satiated once again, and spit up twice). I recently had a blood panel done to test for celiacs and although she is grain-free, I do consume grains/gluten so was assuming that her getting that through my breast milk would be enough for an accurate test. However, I am wondering if that was not enough, or perhaps since she is so young she does to have enough antibodies to register! I'm still new to all this :)
Anyhow, she registered only a 1 on the IgG and IgA on the transglutaminase tests. It says <6 is "no antibodies detected. But what is a "1" ? Is that still a sensitivity, considering she did not have gluten in her direct diet at the time?
