What Tests To Get?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am coming up on six months gluten free. My GI doc (from where I lived before) said I should get tests done again at six months. But she didn't say exactly which ones. I am at school and I don't know if the school health center has any knowledge about celiac so I want to be able to go in and just ask for the tests I need. Can anyone tell me what tests I should get? I can't go to a GI or other doctor as I don't have the money.

Thanks.

IGA, IGG, tissue transglutamase are the tests in the celiac panel. If you had vitamin defiencies, you should test those too, especially ferritin and B12.

Also if your health center isn't knowledgeable you could call your doctors office and ask them to send a lab slip to you or to the health center with the tests. That would also insure that their office gets the results to add to your file.
