In Topic: Endo Results Please Advise!

02 July 2013 - 05:52 PM

I feel like I've asked this a million times but is there any other condition or issue, other than a gluten issue, that would cause a "positive" TTG IGG? (an infection, crohn's disease, etc).  I just feel like I can never get a clear cut answer and am so frustrated.

it wasn't DGP though, it was TTG which I can never find as much information on.

 

They're sending me copies of the endoscopy report too, I don't know if I should get a second opinion.  I feel pretty confident in my dr we're going to one of the top children's hospitals in the US for this. At the same time I know this is all fairly new so I have to think about it.


In Topic: Got Results On My 3 Year Old

I'm awaiting endo results for my 5 year old, she went in on Wednesday. 

Mommy2krj, her symptoms and issues sound similar to your son's so I'm curious to see what we both find. 

 

Justa-just to clarify, the dr said there was inflammation? I hope this isn't a stupid question because I am new to all this as well but could the inflammation be due to something else?  I know my gi said they'd take biopsies to check for celiac but also for other types of allergies that can lead to inflammation in the digestive tract. I keep seeing things online about EGID could it be due to something like that?  because from what you said it sounds like the dr is unclear as to whether this is celiac or not.  Maybe he said to not go overboard because he would need to have gluten in his system for further testing?

thanks again.  they did the DGP and EMA in the panel and they were in the normal range the IGG was the only one that was flagged.
