Retesting Kids?

Recommended Posts

I have recently been diagosed as celiac. I've had my kids blood tested and all are negative and i'm meeting with doc on monday to discuss their results. I'm wondering, at some point should they be retested? What is the protocol on this. Family doc really had no clue and it will be a while before I see GI to ask him.

When my son was diagnosed, his ped. GI told my husband and I to be tested. When we came back negative he said to be retested every couple of years or at the first sign of any symptoms. I'd assume a similar recommendation would apply to kids whose parents tested positive.
