Check up’s after diagnosis/ follow up:
Your doctor and dietitian will advise you on the check-ups that your child needs. It is important that your child has a check-up six months after they are diagnosed and then once a year after that.
What tests do they need?
Your child will need to have some blood tests every year. This helps to check that your child is getting the nutrition that they need and to monitor their coeliac disease. Your child’s gastroenterologist will do these tests every year. When your child is older, your GP will be able to do these blood tests:
- Coeliac disease antibodies
- Full Blood Count
- Vitamin D
- Folic acid
- Vitamin B12
- Thyroid tests
Your child’s gastroenterologist may also recommend that your child has another biopsy to check that their gut is healing well. It is important that your child’s height and weight is also checked to make sure they are growing well.
