Waiting For Test Results

Recommended Posts

My daughter is 14 months old. She had a scope done yesterday and are waiting for the results. We know that she has an IGA deficiency and are pretty sure about Celiac. We have to wait on the results to be sure, though. Does anyone have any experience with dealing with both of these? I have been worrying myself sick about this and could use any advice. Thanks.

IgA deficiency is seen a bit with celiac and that makes blood tests come back wrong sometimes. However, testing with kids under 2 can be inaccurate anyway.

Biopsies can rule celiac in but they can't rule celiac out so keep that in mind. She may still have it even if the scope results come back negative.

Now that all test are done you could but her on a gluten-free diet and if you see improvements then wether the test are postivie or negitive you can tell by a diet change.

All of my son's test came back negitive but had a postive dietary change. He was 15 mo when tests were done and 20 mo when we started gluten-free diet and 4 days latter he was a different kid. If I knew then what I know now he would of been gluten-free at the age of 15 mo.

Good luck and this is the best website if you have any questions. Don't worry about dietitions just ask questions here. My dr just told me "put him on a gluten-free diet and see what happens" . And that was all if it wasn't for this website I don't think my son would be doing as well as he is now. :D
