  1. Update: biopsy - negative He also ran a ttg - iga and it was a 1. I feel even more confused than I was before..... For some reason I knew this would be the case. Dr is out of country but nurse said his recommendation was just to wait and see and if we were still concerned later down the line...
  2. Thanks! The one thing I was a little surprised by was that he didn't want to do anymore blood work - just the biopsy.... I even asked about running the other test besides the ttg my dr did and he said it wasn't necessary. The nurse did tell me that they biopsy multiple areas, not sure how many,...
  3. Thanks - went to the GI specialist today and he seemed very knowledgable. He was not convinced by the one "weak positive" that it is celiac. But he does want to do a biopsy - we are lucky enough to get in on Friday (they had a cancellation). It is scary thinking he has to go under but I will be glad...
  4. It's funny because he is never actually sick, in the sense that he does not get fever, EVER. I have never had to keep him home sick or anything like that. But at the same time he never seems completely well either.... like right now, he is fine but is starting to get the bad sounding cough again...
  5. Thanks! I mentioned the ear infections and constant coughing etc. to the doctor and asked if it could all be related somehow and he basically shrugged it off. He doesn't always cough, but seems to have it more often than not, and has had a few times where he said he was wheezing as well. As for...
  6. Thanks! I have read around. But some things I read I thought did not mention constipation. I am just ready to have a diagnosis, so we can start working on the changes that have to be made, and we don't even have an appointment yet!
  7. Thanks again everyone for the help. I have one more question...... can constipation be a sign as well? He went from diarrhea 2 straight months to now only pooping once a day, and leading up to the one poop he is crying and wanting to be held, until he poops, then he seems fine. He really seems...
  8. Thank you for this response. Since I don't really understand what the test are, I wasn't sure what it could actually mean. Couldn't really ask my doctor.....I think I have learned more reading here than he knows ! But I do respect him for looking into it and for referring me to someone who does...
  9. Thanks everyone.... I am keeping him on his normal diet. He eats a lot of bread, he actually goes to the pantry and brings the loaf of bread to me wanting to eat it. I guess what I am really wondering is, are there other reasons this test (igG ttg) could be "elevated" or is this pretty much a...
  10. I started a thread a couple weeks ago about my 18 month old having diarrhea for 2 months ( green, yellow color mst of te time...) we just recently got our results back that ped ordered......(here is the update I posted, sorry I haven't gotten any responses on other thread....) Thank you everyone...
