Hi! I am new to this board, but have already found it very interesting and helpful. I have a 6 year old son who has had mild (but constant) health issues since he was little. He's a normal 6 year old, but still has some delays/allergy shiners/etc... He's been on a limited dairy diet since he was 3 due to constant ear infections. I had him re-tested for allergies last week, and the doctor (a new GI) suggested including the celiac blood panel.
Results -- Food allergies all negative. Celiac panel slightly positive. IGA was 217. (nurse said upper limit of normal is 195) and TTG was +9 which I guess is still in the normal range, but close to being above normal.
I don't have the other numbers as I had a short conversation with the nurse and needed to run to pick up my child at school. I will call the doctor tomorrow to find out more info.
If you have any insight to these numbers or questions I need to ask the doctor, please let me know.
Thanks for your help!
