To Have Or Not To Have

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have 4 kids all have IgA Deficiency. 2 kids are having difficulty.

Child #1 Lots of blood tests done. Gliadin IgG AB 15 with a normal range of 1-10. and Hemoglobin 6.0 Has headaches, stomach aches, dizzyness, thirst, sleeplessness Does her IgG indicate a positive for Celiacs? She goes in for an endo on Monday but want to know what to expect.

Child #2 All Celiac tests came back normal. Stomach aches for 2 years. IgA deficient (at a 12 with 64 being the low normal). Wondering if we should have an endo done anyway since the IgA can make a false negative for Celiacs.

Thank you to anyone that can help.

Child one, yes that was a postive test. As to the second child who is also having issues do keep in mind that celiac testing can come back a false negative on both blood and biopsy at a fairly high rate. You should so a strict gluten free trial on both children when all testing is done.

Thank you. Child #2 is the one that we brought in first thinking that he might have Celiacs. His IgA deficiency has made this difficult to detect. Poor boy has been in pain for 2 years and we just can't get an answer to what is causing his pain.
