  1. Thank you! The iga was pretty in the middle... not sure exact numbers. The past few days for some reason has been horrible. His stools are back to pure mucus, and he will barely eat which is weird for him! All he wants is milk... well rice milk. I am calling allergist today...
  2. Hello! My son is turning 2 in april. Ever since he was a baby he has had severe mucousy stools. At about 15 months dr finally agreed to do restriction diet and we found improvement with eliminating milk and soy. His stools did not go solid, but had SOME consistency. After complaining again to his dr she sent us to a gi because he has not gained any weight in 9 months. He has develoental and speech delays also. The gi agreed something is amiss besides toddlers diarrhea and tested for celiac, fats and sugars in stool and did a blood work up. His serum iga was in range at 53 and his ttg and tga were 3 with a range of 0-19. All his stool tests came back negative so it appears he is absorbing fats and sugars and his only deficiency is a tiny low on iron. His bun and creatinine are low which shows low muscle which we knew lol. I have not fully discussed what to do next with gi but I really thought he would be positive for celiacs with his symptoms! Has anyone had a similar experience and done biopsy anyways? I am going to do more allergy testing but I fear it will be a waste since he never has skin reactions, only gi issues. I am getting so discouraged. My lil guy is miserable...
