I am new to this and wanted to see if I can get some advice. I have two kids that had various health problems since pretty much they were born. Between the both of them they have asthma, vitiligo, eczema, vitamin deficencies, big bellies, constipation, stomach aches,etc. They both responded really well to the gluten elimination, actually pretty dramatically. I have not really tested them for celiac, as my pediatrician pretty much refused. I am content with the improvement and believe that they have celiac and prepared to go with that.

Now my ex-husband on the other hand, even though impressed by the improvements, thinks that giving them a break with gluten is good but he will try to reintroduce the gluten after a little while, especially when he finds out just how careful he has to pick out the food, that its more expensive (I have been packing them lunches and snacks for when they go over there). Despite my efforts, he does not believe in food allergies, and especially in celiac.

Now my dilemma is that the girls have been off gluten and even if I could find someone to order the testing, do I have to put them back on gluten? Is there a test that would not require it?

How accurate are the testing? And what are the good tests?


Also, me and my mom got tested awhile ago for other reasons and our IgA were 6 and 4 respectively (I am convinced my mom has it). So we asummed that we dont have it. Now does that mean that we are IgA deficient? What tests would you guys recommend?
