My son hasnt been diagnosed as of yet but I am pretty sure this is what it is,so I just wanted to Thank all of you for all the valuable information.. Jamesmommy
  3. Thank you everyone... I have been such a worry wart and trying to keep all this hidden from him and my mind is just so full right now. We will be traveling from home so I will call tomorrow and see if they will be testing him on the day we go and what he need's to do since all paperwork and such is done by phone or letter. I am praying this was all a mistake but I also am trying to prepare myself for yet another life change for him(and US) Will keep you updated as I get info..Will definately be here for more advice... Jamesmommy
  4. No help here.We are waiting on diagnoses too but I did wnat to offer some ((HUGS)) Jamesmommy
  5. I just found out tonight one of my Aunt's on my dad's side of the family was diagnosed this past year with this.Guess it could be in the family... I am worried about him not eating for 8 hours before the biopsy because of his diabetes..He will more than likely drop low.Do you think it is any different for him since he is diabetic?? We go on the 12th and he is to be there at 2:30 so I am thinking this is not the actual biopsy date since we were not given any instructions on him not eating.. I want this done with fast.I wish it could be tomorrow. Thank you for being such a good listener..I seem at a loss with this,guess I will learn it as I did the diabetes.. Jamesmommy
  6. Mariann thank you so much for your quick answer.What has me so worried is that he has toldme since last year he had tummy aches but the doctor just told us to give him tylenol and or motrin.I had a feeling that was a high number.I am keeping his diet as it was to get a correct diagnoses when we go in Oct.To be honest he never really complains about pain or anything.He doesnt have diareah(sp) like everyone say's they have and he doesnt have intense pain.The only time he talk's about pain is when he is in school,that is why I thought it was just him wanting out of school.Will he be in any pain fron the biopsy??He has been through so much already and it is just breaking my heart.Can you give me an idea of how long this will take??Hospital stay or anything.We have no funds and I have to try and get help in this area as I will have all my kid's with me and if I need to find food and lodging I need an idea.We are having to go quit a way's away from home so will need to stay there..Can you tell I am nervous Anyway thanks again for all the help Jamesmommy
  7. Thank you for getting back to me. He was diagnosed with JD at 4 and this Celiac just came up a week ago..Does that help?? Gay
  8. Hi all I am new here.My son is 8 year old.His name is James and he also has juvenile diabetes.Diagnosed at age 4.Here is my fear...We had his yearly blood work done and was told he needed to get a biopsy.They also mentioned if untreated the possibility of lymphoma..So you can see why I am terrified. His IgA ttG antibodies at 210 Units(normal in reference lab <20) Now this is directly from the paper word for word. Do I need to worry?? I mean I am already worried but I also have no idea what he is going into.What he will have to endure and what has God got in store for him.I am terrified of the thought that he might have cancer... Any help and understanding I can get will be greatly appreciated. Thank you Gay Shackelford
