A week ago I took my daughter (5) to the doctor for a check up and I mentioned the tummy aches she has been having. He ended up ordering an IGG test and CBC.
Today I went back and the IGG test indicated Celiac?! I saw "positive * negative" and the number 320. Not sure what I was looking at. The doctor now wants us to see a GI Specialist at Sick Kids, as well he asked us to go on a gluten-free diet. He said the blood work is not conclusive for celiac. She also had lowish iron levels.
A couple years ago our naturopath did and Ige/ iga (I think test) and it showed really high levels for gluten, wheat (along with other things like dairy). We did gluten-free for a while to see if it would clear up her rashes. We were never sure if it helped and ended up adding gluten back in without any obvious problems.
My DD has had tummy aches for years. Recently she has gone from 37 to 35 pounds. She is short 25%... my DH and I are both tall and come from tall families. She isn't eating as well and is often feeling bad because of her tummy. She has also started having light yellow BMs.
Anyways... I don't even find out when our appointment with the GI specialist is for another 2 weeks and they said it could be a very long wait (not sure what very long is though).
In the mean time I was hoping for some thoughts/ insights from anyone else who has had a IGG test indicated celiac.
Thank you so much in advance!!
