When assessing a child for their likelihood of having a coeliac condition - a child with an IG(A) deficiency, what vitamin insufficiencies do you look at to support or rule out a potential case.
My son’s doctor has said that the only important thing to look at, when checking to see whether a patient is anaemic as a consequence of being coeliac, is their HB levels. Says that ferritin is irrelevant.
I myself am often iron deficient and the GPs are only ever interested in whether my ferritin levels are OK / off, so I don’t understand what the difference would be for a child who may or may not be coeliac.
He has lots of other symptoms, btw, not just this.
