Blood Test For Celiac

Recommended Posts

We were given a lab slip today to have a celiac serology test done at the Prometheus lab in San Diego. My daughter is 6 months old and has never directly ingested gluten. I have been gluten-free for almost 4 months. Do I need to expose her to gluten either directly or through my breast milk prior to this test for a true result?

Thanks

Sarah

Hi Sarah,

I'm new to much of this too...I'm mainly replying because I saw that you're from Sacramento, which

is where I'm from too. Which doctor is ordering your daughter's blood tests? I just had a blood draw yesterday too for Prometheus, & am hoping to get some good answers about my own health problems. I have a 3 year-old daughter who doesn't have any signs of celiac thus far (thank goodness) but I want to know my genetic status so I know whether to test her or not. Keep us posted on how everything turns out! Good luck!

A dr. from Stanford Childrens Hospital actually ordered the test. We were seeing Dr. McDonald who is a ped. GI in Sac. but really don't like him. He pretty much refused to help us and just kept ordering one test over and over again.

Good luck with your tests.

You need to be eating gluten to have it pass to your dd via bm or if she is eating solids have her eat gluten. The tests will not be accruate if you are gluten-free and she is gluten-free.
