How Long Before Test Results Come In?

Recommended Posts

My 5-year-old has been complaining of stomach pain for months, and while it's not severe, it's enough that it reminds me of her sister before she was diagnosed 5 years ago via biopsy. So last Friday I took her to a pediatric GI at a children's hospital who ran a full celiac panel. I was just wondering how long it takes to do all of them? I know I can view her ttg-IgA tonight online, but that's the only one that they post for parents to look at, and based on prior testing, it's pretty much worthless as her total IgA is on the very low side.

 

It drives me crazy that they don't post all the results online, but I'm not sure when to start bugging them via phone if it takes a week for all of it to get done.

 

Thank you!

Hard to say, since every lab is different. What did your doctor say? Waiting is so hard! Hang in there, Mom!

Most seem to be done in a week or two.  The EMA IgA takes the most time because of the titre (dilutaions).
