Positive Ttg, Negative Ema 6 Year Old

05 June 2013 - 04:07 AM

Hi,

I recently brought my 6 year old to the doctor because of ongoing complaints about stomach pain. He ordered a variety of labs, including some celiac labs. The only labs that were off were a low WBC (around 2) and his ttg, which was 9 with a reference range of <4 negative, 4-10 weak positive and >10 positive. His ema was negative.

We are scheduling an appointment with a pediatric gi, but I guess I'm just wondering of any chance of this being a false positive or any other reason this would be elevated that isn't celiac. I know ttg can also indicate type 1 dm, but he has no diabetic symptoms and his metabolic panel came back fine.
