The results of your child’s blood test for celiac disease can help doctors figure out the best next steps for him/her. In this handout, you will learn what to expect after your child’s blood test for celiac disease.
The results of your child’s blood test can help doctors decide the best next steps for your child. You should get the results back in about 1-2 weeks. Your child’s doctor will go over the results with you.
The boxes below will help you learn what to expect, depending on the blood test results.
Your child should not start a gluten-free diet until he/she is diagnosed with celiac disease.

Talk with the doctor if your child’s symptoms are distressing or uncomfortable while eating gluten during this time of testing.
