  1. Thanks so much for the offer, connole1056. I was able to check out the book at my local library last weekend. Missy
  2. Thanks celiac3270....I'll give that a try. Missy
  3. Does anyone have the book "Kids With Celiac Disease" by Dana Korn? There is a page in the book that is located in the section about the blood tests to check for Celiac Disease. I am needing a copy of the chart that lists all the blood tests and whether, depending on each result, it's very likely you have celiac disease, not likely etc. If anyone has this, could you please send it to me. Thanks for your time.
  4. Hello! We just received my 2 year old son's test results after he has been back on a regular diet for 3 1/2 months. Here are the results.... Endomysial Antibody screen (IGA) was Negative Endomysial Antibody Titer Not performed because IGA screen was negative Antigliadin IGG was 21 <11 Negative, 11 - 17 Equivocal, >17 Positive Antigliadin IGA was <3 <11 being negative TTG Antibody IGG was <3 <7 being negative TTG Antibody IGA was <3 <5 being negative Since the Antigliadin IGG was the only positive, does this mean that he probably does not have Celiac, but is sensitive to gluten? He had allergy testing done back in January and it was found that he is allergic to wheat. Thank you for your help.
  5. Hello everyone! Thought many of you parents with Celiac children might be interested in this link. I found this company that makes Allergy Aware shirts, onesies and patches. I think it's great! www.jeeto.com Hope you enjoy
  6. Hello! My son is suspect Celiac Disease and we went to the GI Doctor on Monday. Even though he has been on a gluten-free diet for two months, she still wanted to do the Celiac panel. We have been instructed to take the "gluten challenge" for three months and then she will recheck the Celiac panel again then. Here are the results from this week: AGA IgA was 2.8 AGA IgG was 21.6 EMA - none detected TTG was 0.1 If these had been tested while consuming gluten, would the numbers have been higher? What are your thoughts on these results? Also, since going back on a gluten diet, his loose bowel movements have gotten better and not worse, as I anticipated. Thanks for all your help. Missy
  7. Hello! I joined this message board a few weeks ago and I first want to start by saying THANKS to all of you. Everyone has been so helpful therefore reducing my stress greatly. Now to my son, his pediatrician sent us to a Pediatric GI doctor to check for Celiac, due to an increased AGA IgG level. When we went yesterday, she immediately put him back on a regular diet (he's been gluten-free for over two months) for 2-3 months. She did order all 5 blood tests yesterday even though he's been gluten-free for awhile. She is also having us collect stool so that she can check the fat content. At the end of the 2-3 months, she wants to repeat the 5 blood tests and if they show positive for Celiac, she wants to order DNA testing. I was shocked when she said this beacuse in all the posts I've read, most doctors won't order this. Am I correct? She never mentioned anything about scope or biopsy, just the blood tests and the DNA testing. What are your thoughts on all of this? Any information will be greatly appreciated.
  8. Jackie, I'm so glad to see you made it here! I know you will find this message board extremely helpful. I find myself coming here everyday with questions. Missy (from the Wild Oats site)
  9. Thanks everyone! I figured the person that told me was probably confused, but with me being new to all of this, I just wanted to make sure. Thanks, Missy
  10. Hello! My son is suspect to have celiac disease and I have been feeding him alot of corn on the cob (since that's one of the only things I can get him to eat). I was recently told by someone that it is typically thought to be gluten-free, but is NOT gluten-free. I knew all of you would know for sure. Thanks
  11. Enterolab

    Thanks to everyone for the information. I have an email in to Enterolab to see if they accept my insurance. Missy
  12. I have been reading from other posts alot of information on Enterolab and the Gluten Sensitivity Stool and Gene Panel test they sell. Is this the only way you can get these tests done? Will the doctors not order these tests so that insurance will pay for them? Thanks, Missy
  13. Does anyone have a list of gluten-free, egg free and milk free Salad Dressings? Thanks!

    Thanks for all the info. Very helpful! I am new to all of this and I am feeling so overwhelmed and confused. I just want to make sure that I don't give my son anything that could harm him. Were all of you just as confused and overwhelmed in your beginnings with Celiac? Thanks!
