Hi there, yes, we went to see Dr. O’Brien before Christmas who confirmed the diagnosis. His tTG-IgA was so high that there was no doubt that it was coeliac disease. He did offer a biopsy/scope but it would mean going back on the normal gluten diet for three months and our son doesn’t want to do that. He’s on a completely GF diet now but still has some issues, still losing weight so we are looking at everything. He has seen a nutritionist too. It’s tough going at the moment.
