We want to purchase a celiac genetic home testing kit for our 5 year old. Any recommendations?

You might want to say what country you are in.  That can make a difference on what is available

We are thinking about ordering one from celiac disease DNA for com for $250

We're in the US.

If you are going  to pay that much, why not just get it done at a reputable lab near you?  I think mine was about that much.

I just looked , briefly, at it and the main company.  If that had been around when I gene tested, I would have done that.  I didn't think my health insurance would pay for my DNA test.... but they actually did by going thru my doctor.

In case you did not know, genetic testing for celiac disease is usually used to help rule out a celiac disease diagnosis.  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could turn into celiac disease (only a very few actually develop it).    That is a lot of people!  

If you suspect celiac disease, consider a simple antibodies blood test from the University of Chicago’s celiac center:
