3-6 Month Follow-Up

Make sure your celiac kid is clean; don’t forget to get him or her re-screened! According to my son’s dietician, and celiac.org, celiacs should see their physician 3-6 months after their initial diagnosis and annually thereafter to identify nutritional deficiencies, address symptoms they may still be experiencing, and confirm that they are following a strict gluten free diet. At the 3-6 month visit, your child’s physician should order celiac serology (anti-DGP IgA and anti-tTg IgA) to make sure that their number of antibodies has gone down since the original screening. Patients on a strict gluten free diet should have a negative anti-tTg IgA test by the 6-12 month mark. Book your child’s checkup today!
