My Son

Entry posted by %s - 190 views

My son is 7 now.

He occasionally {about 3 - 5 times a year} has random pain, fever and unexplained clumsiness.

I see this and think of all the times I went through that as a child.

I have had the Dr give him the blood test for Celiac and it came back negative. I know that blood test isn't always accurate.

I am on a very strict gluten free diet. He eats gluten free - by choice - for the most part.

It still worries me because of all the genetic problems that run in my family.

I have talked to a lot of people about this and quite a few of them said that the problems would "flare up" now and then in kids, but then when they got older they noticed things getting severely worse.

I am keeping a close eye on him.

If anyone has an opinion they would like to share on this I would love to hear it!!
