Do They Give Children Biopsy? Also, Been Glutened ...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. My 17-year-old daughter is going to have a "Celiac Panel" run on her today at the lab. Do you know if a child comes up for showing they have Celiac, do they do the biopsy, or do they just recommend they start the diet?

Also, I somehow got glutened and was up at 2 am very very sick, and in horrible pain. I will vomit when I have this intense pain. The doctor says that children with Celiac throw-up and it is unsual for adults, but I am very CLEARLY vomitting when I am glutened. Does anyone else (adult) have really violent vomitting episodes with diarrhea when they are glutened....

Great,,, here I go again, back to another month or two of diarrhea and loud bowel sounds until I heal.

And I STILL don't know what I ate!!!!

Does depend on the Dr. I would say that if you're celiac and your child has positive bloodwork, they'll probably forgo the endo.

On the vomiting, horrible pain, big D and all, yes. I have that, they never could figure out why or what it was. I've always had a sensitive stomach, and I throw up over nothing.

Even as a kid, I would wake up in the middle of the night about once a month, throw up, and go back to bed. Made no sense. Since being an adult, it's about the same, but with horrific pain.

Since I haven't been off gluten very long, I don't know if it's due to glutening or not, but it would make sense. I generally have to take phenergan (not orally :o ) when it happens. It helps a lot.

Thank you. I just called my doctors office and left a message for him to give me a prescription for when this happens. Doesn't happen too much anymore, but ya know how people say you forget the pain of having a baby? well......I remember it well when this happens, it is absolutely unbearable.

My two grandchildren had the bloodwork done then the four year old had the endo and the colonoscope done. It ended up with one intolerant and the four year old full blown celiac's....

Mother is full blown celiac. I'm intolerant.

We are grateful to find out why our daughter and son were so sick for so long.After an adjustment period all is doing well....

Children absolutely have biopsies. Now, if you had a 1-2 yr. old, then one would not have a biopsy, but at that age you couldn't reasonably test through bloodwork, either. I've had three biopsies.

my daughter did not have a biopsy... with me having Celiac and her positive dietary response and the fact that when she gets glutened she reacts horribly, we know she's Celiac as well.

One of my main symptoms before dx was vomiting and diarrhea. I would be in my dr.s office at least once or twice a week with horrible diarrhea and I would even be vomiting in the sink in the dr.s office while I was there. That is one of my first symptoms when I get accidentally glutened... I get D and vomiting at the same time... Very uncomfortable! :blink:

I had one when I was 2.
