    hi there, my name is antonette an i need some help, do you know any laboratory who can do celiac testing without referral from a doctor??? I suspect that my 3 year old son is sensitive to gluten, but i have been to several pediatricians and none of them recommended blood tests to check celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Even though I enumerated symptoms similar to celiac disease. Today we visited another doctor because he have rashes all over his body since yesterday but only prescribed anti-allergy medicine without any blood tests done. I even requested him if total IgA test can be done but he denied saying rashes does not always point to gluten allergy. I also contacted a german clinic listed in your website but was told I should bring him to a pediatrician. Thank you.

      I suggest you make an appointment with Dr Loubser, he is a paediatrician use to dealing with Celiac patients. Also listed on our website. You can do the testing independently through XY clinic, but for a small child I really advice you to do this with the support of a good family Dr. Dr Loubser will guide you. Good Luck! Linda
