  1. Thank you so much for these articles and the advice. I appreciate it so much. He was symptomatic pre-diagnosis. He battled abdominal pain, constipation, horrible gas then he got profoundly anemic. Plus, he was small compared to his classmates (the rest of us are tall). After going gluten free (or so we thought) those symptoms disappeared and he began to grow and gain weight. It took about 10 months for his Ttg to go from greater than 198 to 7. He does not seem to have symptoms now.
  2. Thanks for your response. My son is 9 and has an extremely limited diet due to texture issues, etc. I know that he is not eating foods due to peer pressure and takes the gluten-free diet very seriously so the problem must be cross contamination at restaurants as well as processed gluten-free foods that aren’t truly gluten-free. Ugh. Another troubling thing is that his GI doc (recently retired) never did this full range of tests so we thought my son was doing great! I guess we are back to square one. Moving to a whole foods diet for him will be extremely difficult but must be done.
  3. My son was dx'd with celiac disease 2.5 years ago and has been gluten-free ever since. I recently had his labs checked and am awaiting a call from the doctor. The pediatrician ordered more tests than the GI normally does so these results are unfamiliar. His ttg looks fine but gliadin is crazy high. What does this mean? Gliadin(Deamidated) Ab, IgA Value 2.7 U/mL <15.0 U/mL Gliadin(Deamidated) Ab, IgA Negative Negative GLIADIN(DEAMIDATED) AB, IGG, VALUE 551.8 U/mL <15.0 U/mL H Gliadin(Deamidated) Ab, IgG Positive Negative A Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA Value 8.9 U/mL <15.0 U/mL Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgA Negative Negative Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgG Value 40.5 U/mL <15.0 U/mL H Tissue Transglutaminase Ab, IgG Positive Negative A IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 92 mg/dL 51 - 259 mg/dL
