We just had his blood work done and his TTIGA (?)
My 18 year old son wasn’t growing, is very skinny and has no appetite. His 15 year old brother passed him up in height. My Momma instinct knew something was wrong. We just had his blood work done and his TTIGA (?) is 100 when it’s suppose to be under 4. We have a GI appointment for Thursday. He loves carbs, all the crap I wish he wouldn’t eat…fast food etc. I am happy to know he will need to change his diet, it will be good for him all together, but I’m a bit freaked out about all the “get new kitchen stuff to avoid cross contamination” etc. He’s suppose to go off to college soon! He doesn’t have any other symptoms, which I find odd. I’m afraid he won’t stick to a strict gf diet…I guess I need to wait and see what the GI Dr. says…but as far as I can tell…there aren’t any other diseases that would cause that blood work to turn out the way it did, other than Celiac’s. Should it turn out to be Celiac’s for sure, I am thrilled to know about all the products available these days and that there are groups like this out there!!
