What Can I Expect After My Child's Blood Test?
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.

Did you know?
Your child should not start a gluten-free diet until he/she is diagnosed with celiac disease. We know eating gluten is not pleasant for your child right now, but gluten in the body helps us figure out if your child has celiac disease. Talk with the doctor if your child’s symptoms are distressing or uncomfortable while eating gluten during this time of testing.
