  1. Would it be possible to come back negative for a few and only one positive? Is that still considered positive then?
  2. Thank you, I think I'm going to wait for another couple of weeks so it's 4 weeks back on gluten. The doctor ordered 3 different tests. I was recently tested and it came back negative but they only did igA and another one.
  3. Hi everyone, My 20 month old daughter has anemia and chronic constipation and the pediatrician wants to test for celiac. After the doctor suggested gluten could be the issue we decided to cut it out and see if it makes a difference while we were waiting for the pediatrician appointment. She was gluten free for a bit over a month and her constipation improved as well as her eczema and she seemed happier. The doctor ordered the blood test and said we need to give her gluten for 3-4 weeks but since we started giving her gluten foods again her constipation has come back, she's been really cranky and her eczema has gotten worse again. I don't like seeing her like this and don't want to do another three weeks of this. My question is, can we do the test after say 2 weeks back on gluten considering she was only gluten free for a month? Thanks
