4 Year Old'S Tests All Negative - Now What?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 4 year old's test all came back negative, I got copies from the pediatricians office. Her results were:

Gliadin Abs, IgA - 0.7

Gliadin Abs, IgG - 0.8

IGA - 32

TTG IGG - 1

All of her other tests came back as well and while some of her levels are slightly higher than the reference range, or lower in some cases, the peds office said its all normal. Is there anything they missed testing for?

They said they might order allergy tests next week if she is still complaining and still having symptoms.

I'm going to order the Enterolab test to see if that shows anything that the ped isn't catching.

If the IGA result is her total IGA then she may be IGA deficient which would cause a false negative on tests. It also is known that children have an even higher rate of false negatives than adults do. After all testing is finished do give the diet a good strict try. Please be aware also that celiac is not an allergy and it will not show up on allergy testing.

My 18 month old has been through so many tests and scopes to find out what is going on with her! All come back saying that she is ok. But if we put her on a gluten diet or have her drink regular milk, life is not fun! The only thing that has worked is the gluten-free diet. Give it a try, no matter what the tests say, it is worth it. If it makes your child feel better, and eases the stress in your life of having a sickchild it is worth it, regardless of what the Dr.'s say. Good luck! hope you get the answers you need. I have resided to the fact that I won't, we just live gluten-free now!

Has she had the DNA testing done? Will they do it through your doctor's office? I know our doctor sends it off to Prometheus and bills insurance for us.
