Latent Celiacs Disease.....Im a big ball of confused.
So I haven't been blogging much. I feel like my mind can only be in one or two areas at a time, and in the last few weeks it has had to be in about 10. Birthday parties, car insurance, doctors appointments, blood tests, endoscopy's, school meetings......just too much for one brain to handle!
Well, we got the intestine biopsy back.......it was negative. There was no damage to his intestines....meaning no Celiacs in there. What the GI Dr. said was that it probably is Latent Celiacs Disease. Basically he has the antibodies for Celiac, but his intestines are not damaged.
I have two choices, keep him on Gluten and retest in 6 months or just put him on GF diet now and forget retesting. I'm waiting for the Pediatrician to call back just because I don't know what to do. My son doesn't eat a lot of Gluten to begin with so I'm not even sure if in 6 months he could have a positive Biopsy again. I feel confused.
