Here's My Son's Test Results

Recommended Posts

Hello! My son is suspect Celiac Disease and we went to the GI Doctor on Monday. Even though he has been on a gluten-free diet for two months, she still wanted to do the Celiac panel. We have been instructed to take the "gluten challenge" for three months and then she will recheck the Celiac panel again then. Here are the results from this week:

AGA IgA was 2.8

AGA IgG was 21.6

EMA - none detected

TTG was 0.1

If these had been tested while consuming gluten, would the numbers have been higher? What are your thoughts on these results? Also, since going back on a gluten diet, his loose bowel movements have gotten better and not worse, as I anticipated.

Thanks for all your help.

Missy

Since he was gluten free at the time of testing the results may not have been accurate. They recommend consuming alot of gluten for 3 months before being tested(blood or biopsies)

With celiac some people don't even get symptoms so you can't base it on not being worse since being back on the diet.

Good luck :D
