From Clarkston, Michigan, USA:
My eight year old son has had diabetes for six years. Recently, he had a series of blood tests done, one of which was for celiac. All of which was in the normal range, including Immunoglobulin A. In the comment section was: "Fluorescence suggestive of anti-smooth muscle antibody. Recommend follow-up testing." Does this mean he has celiac disease? What does their comment mean?
I'm afraid that's a question for an immunologist. I really don't have a good answer.
