Our son, Cy, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease almost a year ago. His blood test tested positive, as did his upper endoscopy. Since going gluten-free, he has gained nearly 12 lbs and is a "regular" healthy and happy 3 year old. We now have a 7-month old daughter and I'm anxious to know what her chances of developing Celiac Disease are. My husband and I have both had the Celiac blood panel done and neither of us currently have CD. That said, one or both of us obviously carries the gene for the disease. Our pediatric GI doc has recommended genetic testing and I'm looking into it (cost, ins. coverage, etc.). Not quite sure what my question is here... just wondering if any of you have done/researched genetic testing? Would you recommend it? Thanks, and I'm so happy The Bump has created this board.
