Son Getting Tested?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Since I've been diagnosed with celiac I want my son to get tested. I asked my gastro about him because now I'm thinking back to when he was a toddler he would get explosive D. We took him to Children's Memorial in Chgo; however that was over 19 years ago and they didn't check for celiac back then. They just said he had allergies.

My GI said it is common for children to have symptoms but then they go away for years and could surface again later. He hasn't had stomach issues for a long time. I just don't want him to go years like me undiagnosed. I think I've had celiac since I was five, and now I'm 50.

Is is common for physicians to test your children after you get diagnosed?

My physician indicated that if I have celiac disease then my immediate family should be tested. I know that different physicinas have different opinions; however, I just wanted to let you know what mine said.
