TrixieMom added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseSiblingsHi my youngest son was diagnosed at 14 months (two months ago) with celiac via a biopsy. I had blood work done (Igg TTg something like that) on my older children. One had two negatives and the other one positive and one negative result. Has anyone had any experience with this. I have a call in to the GI dr. and our family doctor is supposed to contact him as well. I suspect they'll do a biopsy. What are the chances it will be positive? Any experiences? My youngest had classic symptoms but not this child. She has had problems with constipation but not major.?!

TrixieMom added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseThirsty?Since beginning gluten-free diet with my 14 month old 4 weeks ago - I have noticed he is drinking a lot more than usual. Probably twice as much? Has anyone else noticed this happening? Just a few days ago - I noticed a change in his bm - the first formed stools that weren't completely undigested food since birth really. It is encouraging to see a change in this area - it makes following the diet a bit easier :-)
So anyone esle noticed the thirsty thing??

My 14 month old son was diagnosed with celiac disease and has been gluten-free for three weeks. The diet hasn't been too bad - I am just anxious to see a difference in his health. How long before most of you noticed a difference in your children? We aren't dairy free but I've contacted the dr. about trying that until things heal.
Also, have any of you had experience with your child having other health problems? Are they related to the celiac disease? My son has had several severe pneumonias, reflux, anemia (Obviously related), and severe asthma.
