  1. Thank you for your response. Its interesting to hear that you weren't deficient in vitamins. Our doctor used it as a form of dismissal - well her iron levels are fine so she can't be! NHS is our 'free' well paid for by our taxes, health service. Its great to have free medical treatment but its a very slow process trying to get assessed and to see the right docs. Am going to look into private options but its very expensive as most people don't have private health care insurance (we don't). Appreciate you posting back. Thanks
  2. Can anyone share experiences or offer any advice. My daughter is 3.5yrs old She has complained of regular stomach ache for the last 18 months and has constant bouts of loose stools Since 6 months she has dropped from the 25 centile to between 2nd and 9th for both height and weight She suffers with ketotic hypoglycemia and is allergic to eggs My mother has celiac disease We have finally managed to get the docs to take blood tests. They first did EMA tests IGA and IGG. IGA was negative and IGG positive They then did TTG IGA which was also negative (1.2). They told me that IGA levels were fine and iron levels are good (14) Their feeling is that this concludes that my daughter does not have celiac disease I am worried that this is not conclusive and from what I have read, small children do often get negative results. They have offered no explanation as to why her IGG was positive Has anyone encountered anything similar. We are in the UK so in the NHS process which is slow and laborious in getting to see specialists Thanks
