  1. thanks... since we were so close to the end of the year (and since he had already met his deductible) we decided to both have his gallbladder removed and be tested for celiac. unfortunately they didn't do a full panel. the results that came back are dgp igg @ 2 and dgp iga @ 3, with reference...
  2. My husband has been having tummy issues for the past few years. It started with a severe case of the hiccups leading to a diagnosis of esophageal ulcers, gerd, and then later h.pylori. This year he has had kidney stones and issues with gall-sludge. He had an ultrasound today (because of most current...
  3. Our almost 6 yr old had a scope this year. Her results came back negative so part of me regrets having it done, but I wonder if I would have regretted not doing it and not knowing the answers. So I won't advise one way or another but only say that the scope was quick, she had no pain, and was back...
  4. Here is her full back story. At 5.5 (she turned 6 last month) I took her for her kindergarten physical and her ped doc noticed her bloating and suggested a food allergy. She was also below the 15% in both height and weight (I had always put that in the short genes in our family) and I also asked...
  5. Hopefully the pic shows up this time. The top pic is of her arm, the bottom pic obviously her cheek, and the right pic is her leg. My mother in law is a nurse and once I said it was on her face she said to take her into the clinic, so I did. The on call doc thought her face and arms were not the...
  6. Here is what they look like (says my pic is too big)
  7. I just got back from running some benadyl to my daughter at school after they called to say she has an itchy red hive like rash on her lower legs. By the time I got there I also found it on her elbows and she was starting to get bumps on her cheeks but those are not red or itchy yet. She is not...
  8. We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me. Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she d...
  9. As someone who has had many of these questions, I like this! Maybe add a note to the "what tests" portion that reminds people to get a physical copy of their results that includes the ranges.
  10. Thanks. Our daughter is 5 1/2 and her IGA was 61 (range of 27-195). It was myself who pushed to have her tested after some searching online. So when the results came back negative but her symptoms improved that is what has made me question celiac vs. NCGS. Her dad had two endoscopies done last year...
  11. I wasn't sure where to post this but here is goes… my daughter's test results came back negative for celiac and we opted not to do the endoscopy however we have cut all obvious sources of gluten and her symptoms greatly improve while she is on a cleaner diet. Last weekend we did a "test" meal (...
  12. Thank you all for your help/support! I requested a copy of her results and from what I see they were indeed negative (Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml, ttg igg <.8u/ml, aga ab iga <.2 u/ml, aga an igg <.7u/ml, iga 61mg/dL). As for the 61 it didn't say a result just that the range was 27-195, so I assume...
  13. Hi all and tia for your help! I took our 5yr DD in for her kindergarten check in May. I had two seemingly random questions for the Dr. 1) is her tummy bloated or is it just me and 2) she wakes in the night with severe pain in her legs. He agreed her tummy was bloated but not hard, not too concerned...
