  3. Hi there, I've got a few questions or concerns... I'm 35yrs old & all my life my mother has told me that I had Celiac as a child... I was never put on a gluten-free diet or anything.. I just always knew I had it as a child but never researched it.. a little history on me.. I have had recurrent pneumonia & bronchial problems since I was 5yrs old, which now my 5yr old son has.. he just had his 5th pneumonia this week.. the second time in a month.. he is being seen by a pulmonary specialist next month.. what brought me to this site was doing a search for "recurrent pneumonia in children" on a search engine... it struck me that I was told I had Celiac... after talking to a few people they commented that it's not something you get rid of.. you should be on a strict diet.. hhhmmm... here's the thing.. I don't have GI probs and I am overweight... I do get bone pain, confusion etc... Well, my son usually has loose stools and in the past few months has complained of an itchy back.. I've noticed small bumps all over & have had him checked.. they said they were hive like.. he has also had excema since infancy. I'm not sure if any of this is related.. another similarity that we have is that we are both carriers of the Cystic Fibrosis gene.. he was tested as a baby , having seen something on his blood tests at birth.. so my husband & I were tested.. I am a carrier.. my first cousin has CF ... well, I guess I'm just looking for a word of advice.. I'm going to print out all the info for his doctor appt.. at this time I'm more concerned for him & his little body.. he is very thin.. for a while we were having his weight checked.. he has been gaining, but not as much weight as you would think by the amount of food consumed. So, please, if anyone has had experience w/any of the above, please let me know... I may be way off base, but you never know... my pedi as a child may have misdiagnosed me also.. did they know of the gluten-free diet back in the early 70's? Thanks for listening!
