And the answer is...

Thyroid test... negative.

Diabetes test... negative.

Celiac disease..... DING! DING! DING!

So it is official. And I shall never second-guess my gut instincts again.

And also? I obviously must get more militant about this gluten thing. Positive blood test after supposedly being gluten-free for 3 weeks? I must be doing something wrong.

Never doubt those instincts, lady. You know that little girl better than anyone. Celiac is so manageable these days so I'm glad this is something that you can address. There are about a million gluten-free recipe websites out there, which I'm sure you've already started bookmarking. Give her hugs from us!

Glad to hear you got confirmation on the answer to what is going on! I couldn't remember if you said this was just the blood test or did she also have a biopsy to confirm it? Kayla has an appt tomorrow with the ped so I can go over her blood test results for celiac; I'm not looking forward to going to a GFWF diet that's for sure!

I just found your blog today, and Kiki is absolutely gorgeous! She's almost the same age as my Ruby (who is 20 months old).

Sorry to hear about the celiac - but I know other families who are dealing with it, and it apparently is pretty manageable. Maybe it just takes a while to get it out of her system?
