Years Without Testing Dr Says No Bother

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a nine year old who was diagnosed with Celiac before her second birthday. Due to life circumastances she was out of my care for the past five years. Now that I have her back, her primary care doctor says there is no need for any follow up on the celiac.  I have strong suspicion that she has been exposed to gluten for years. can this doctor be right!? Souldn't I be following up from square one to insure she does not need to start again with a dairy free diet or other protective measures? Doesnt she need follow up every two years with a GI?

Yes, you should check her medical history out esp. if you are not sure what she has been doing in those five years....I would want a full history work-up so you know for sure what her needs maybe now besides celiac....Bodies change quickly at that age for a female....Plus I'm fairly sure she could have a few emotional issues with a major change at that age...I know it would have thrown me off at that age! That is a lot for a nine year old to deal with....
