  1. My almost 4 year old has chronic constipation since birth so I finally got our pediatrician to try to figure out what's wrong. She had some blood work come back in January with a positive ttg (77.8). The rest of the labs were normal. She had labs done again in May with another positive ttg (50). We finally got an appointment with a pediatric GI, who was horrible, last Tuesday. She just had a endoscope biopsy on Friday. The drs said that "everything looked normal." We live in a very small community in western Canada. We actually had to travel 4.5 hours to Vancouver to see the pediatric GI and to have the biopsy, therefore information, education and medical professionals knowledge is extremely lacking. I would like to know if my doctors blood work is a confirmed Celiac, or what those numbers actually mean. No one seems to be able to tell me. I want to start a gluten-free diet but I don't know if I should wait for the biopsy results (could be up to 4 weeks) or can I start now? Can someone point this confused mommy in the right direction?
