Good Morning, I'm new to this section and my daughter is currently being tested for Celiac Disease. When my daughter was born she was always a very spitty baby, she FINALLY got Zantac for reflux when she was 10 months old. She was doing great with it and started to wean her off of it. She finally got off of it when she was 13 months old and did wonderful without it. Without warning 2 months later she started to spit up again. I mentioned it to her pedi and she felt that at this time, she shouldn't be spitting up anymore, and referred her to a GI. When I was telling her GI about all of the symptoms including her constipation issues when she was an infant and now diarrhea on and off he highly suspected it was Celiac Disease, but in the mean time he put her on Prevacid. They did blood work and only 1 of her test came back abnormal (tTG). It wasn't extremely high but still in the abnormal range, so he left it up to me as to whether or not to do the endoscope. I chose the wait it out option and do a repeat blood draw in 5 months. Over the weekend she started to have her diarrhea spells on and off again and on Sunday her stomach did seem to be a bit larger than normal, so I called him last night and he wants to do a stool sample. I am new to this and need some thoughts as to what to expect if/when she has to do the endoscope and what your symptoms and diagnoses journey was. Thanks so much for your timeView Thread
