celiac testing anyone???

My 3 yr old's celiac test can back negative but one of the numbers was questionable. So the doc wants to run it again. Does anyone know what the normal range is for the results???

When I look up celiac it minds well have a picture of my son next to it it pretty much describes his GI symtoms.

I don't know what the range is on the blood test, but our gi says that it isn't always reliable. The only definative test for it is a scope with biopsy of the vili in the gi tract. He would also need to be on gluten for awhile prior to the scope.

My dd had all the symptoms as well but her tests all came back neg (they ran hers twice also). They also did a sweat test on her. Everything came back fine.
