How Long Did It Take For Your Blood Test To Come Back?

Recommended Posts

Ryan had his blood drawn Thurs and the doctor said to call for results today. I spoke to the nurse and she pulled them up in the computer. She said the CBC was normal, but she couldn't see the other tests because sometimes they don't make them available until the doctor releases them. So I have been patiently waiting for the dr to call back (okay impatiently). Do you think that because the doctor didn't release them that means anything? I know I need to chill. I don't even know what I hope at this point. Talk me down someone. :blink:

I can only tell you what my primary care doctor told me when we found out that my problems were related to Celiac. He told me of all the things that it could have been this was the "best" possible diagnosis because of the fact that no medicine or surgery is required and there was an execellent chance I would completely recover (which I did ). I feel the same way as I am perfectly fine since being 100% compliant on the diet. Good luck.

My blood tests took longer, I can't remember exactly but 5 or 6 working days probably. Is Ryan your son? I am considering having my 5 year old tested by a blood test but I worry about how he will do. Do you mind me asking how you figured out your sugar intolerance? That seems to be a big one for me because when I have it, I get lots of muscle pain and fatigue. Can you test for it? Hang in there, if the tests are positive, you are on the way to getting him the help he needs.

Thanks. We didn't get a call back from the doctor today so the results must not be in. Hopefully tomorrow. Ryan is my son, he is 7, and he did not do well at all with the blood test. He is a kid that doesn't like to be fussed with at all and he wanted no parts of the needle. My husband finally had to hold him down, which we didn't want to do at all. :(

I figured out my sugar intolerance by my symptoms when I ate sugar and my nutritionist said that it was a food I was intolerant (which I knew to begin with). I would get really edgy, shaky, lightheaded, palpitations, then fatigued and sometimes achy, as well. But now that I think about it, the only time I ate sugar, I was probably eating a lot of gluten with it, so, maybe it's really just gluten?

Thanks for sharing that with me. I have been suspicious of sugar for about 6 months now and my mother has a friend that gets migraines when she eats sugar.

I just checked and the first time they ran my blood test for Celiac's, it took 3 days and the second 7 days. I hope you hear something soon. I need to find another option for my son, I don't think he would tolerate a needle stick well either. When he had his flu shot, he watched the whole time even though they told him not to look and I'm sure he'd do the same with a blood test.
