My daughter seemed very washed out and what I thought were some mental health issues developing in March this year. She's 18 and taking her A levels starting next week. I'm so worried about her.
She had some blood tests which proved she had severe anaemia Haem 7and Vit D deficiency. We discussed that her periods weren't that heavy and she had no other symptoms, apart from a desire to eat ice cubes. She started taking iron and Vit D tablets as prescribed and at a follow up visit, it was suggested she had another blood test to check whether she is coeliac. That came out as anti-tTG 129, the doctor said the norm should be about 7 which strongly suggesed coeliac disease.
Meanwhile we have a private appointment with the gastroenterologist on June 12th and I have continued her on a 'normal' diet, as my understanding is that it's better to do that until you have a definite diagnosis, probably via biopsy.
I'm so worried that I haven't done the right thing and I so wanted her to feel a bit better before taking her exams.
Any advice for a worried Mum?
