Blood Test Results?

Recommended Posts

The tTG is normally part of the blood panel - in fact it is often the only test a doctor will run.  You should get a copy of all your results.

called today with biopsy results. Said  there was no evidence of celliac disease.  They are doing one for lactose but that takes longer to get back.

 

Pretty discouraged, was hoping we finally found an answer to his issues.

Make sure you get copies of the biopsy report, too! Sometimes doctors don't consider celiac until the biopsies show severe damage. ...but there are signs earlier than that: increased intraepithelial lymphocytes being one of them!

We finally got the go ahead from doctors to try the glutten free trial. They said to do it for 4 weeks.

 

We started Monday and have already seen his belly get smaller. Lost 2 inches.  He also seems more hyper? One thing we have noticed is he doesn't ask for candy as much. He always wants candy all day every day before. When we give him candy sometimes he forgets to eat it.
