My son is 3.5. I have suspected a gluten intollerance for some time now. removing gluten from our household would prove to be difficult (as I have another child who refuses to eat pretty much anything but whole grains...and she is very underweight). Therefore, I've been pursuing bloodwork throughout time for a more clear diagnosis prior to removing the gluten. Please laugh now. You all probably know that it's rare to get a clear diagnosis for celiac. I'm figuring that out now! My SIL has celiac, diagnosed when she was an adult. (Son's paternal aunt.)
I finally obtained some of his labwork results. The doctor is very protective of this info, so I don't have all of it. Here are some results. Perhaps someone can help with the Gliadin Ab IgG value...
Gliadin Ab, IgA <3
Gliadin Ab, IgG 11 (marked as High)
Reference Range for both:
Celiac Disease Panel
tTG Ab, IgA <3
IgA Serum was 62 (Reference Range: 24-121)
Oh, and my son has an IgG3 deficiency as well. All his other Ig values have been relatively normal, but his IgG3 value is 4 (with a reference for him of 19-85). Also has chronic (but controlled) eczema, as well as chronic sinus infections, 3 sets of ear tubes, and EXCESSIVE saliva to the point where sometimes it interferes with his speech.
