Igg Results And Future Expectations?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Our 5 year old daughter showed results of IGG high to gluten, gliadin, wheat, spelt, yeast and moderate to egg whites, rye, soy bean and garlic.

From your experience, is there any chances that it can improve (go away?) with time?

She has been on gluten free diet for almost a year, with impressive changes/results.

And on diet free from all the other foods she showed reaction to, for about 1 month and 1/2, we have been recommended to keep it up for 3 months, I might anyway keep it going longer.

We opt for no other treatments so far, but might reconsider as she still presents some signs of not being fully recovered maybe (pale stools).

The Doctor Naturopath we dealt with said that it is possible that the wheat/gliadin/gluten problems would be for life :-( I guess based on the symptoms + results?

I worry a lot, and not knowing enough is the worse, I prefer to be "ready" for all kind of scenarios now, since this is quite recent to us - we've been struggling with "traditional" medecine "back home" in England as they kept saying she was healthy and nothing was wrong with her (always ill with tonsiltis and/or other infections, bloated tummy, eczema, complaining of tummy ache, head ache, nausea, diarhoea)because she was happy and -looking- healthy.

Hello Charliesmom,

No she hasn't.

In England the family doctors we had couldn't be concerned less (almost had me fully convinced that I was the problem and the one to be treated with prozac or else) :-(

And since we arrived here we haven't found a family doctor yet, we went for a naturopath, but she works with limitations, and she also said that the only way to check for celiac was with the endoscopy procedure - which, because of our past experience with medical services we were terrorised of putting her through, but since reading a few positive stories here, I start to re-think.

Since she has been on a gluten free diet for a year testing for celiac will be negative, if she has it, it would show up false negative. The only way to get testing done would be to challenge her by feeding her gltuen --the equivalent of 3-4 slicces of bread-- for at least 3 months prior to testing. However, if you feed her gltuen again and her symptoms return then you have your answer and should keep her gluten free for good regardless of the test results (or if you can't keep her on gltuen long enough for the tests which is the case for many here). Celiac/gluten intolerance does not go away with time.

As far as doctors go I beg you to listen to your gut. Doctors do not know everything...for example, my 16 month old daughter is facing kidney failure (they are functioning at 65%) because the only doctors the insurance would cover insisted she was fine for the same reason (always smiling and happy, little did they know that she was in so much pain that their poking and proding didn't bother her). We finally were fed up with them (they diagnosed her over the phone with celiac and wouldn't do anything when she had bloody stools) and we went to another pediatrician who checked her blood levels and she is deficient in everything and her intestines are in really bad shape, but because the other doctors just blew us off my 16 month old child is facing total organ failure in the next 6 months. Our pediatrician actually just told us to try natural healing like massage and aromatherapy to stimulate her kidneys so that we wont lose her because no one else will even look at her because we no longer have insurance and it seems that it is all about money.

Anyway...sorry that I got so off topic. My point was pretty much find a doctor that will take you seriously because it is your child's life. I truely hope that you get the answers that you need. Good luck to you.
