  1. Thank you all for your replies. I am contacting the pediatrition about this. I feel alot more confident about it and reassured about the possible causes and corses of action. I will let you know how his tests turn out. Lydia
  2. My husband had been finally diagnosed with coeliacs after 2 years of investigations, interspersed with broken limbs through osteoporosis. My youngest (4yrs) son has similar toilet habits to my husband, he is a bit behind his peers developmentally (his older brother has always been top of the class but he is struggling with talking clearly) and average height despite an above average height father and above average height elder brother. So we took him to the pediatrician... She asked me so many unexpected questions about his symptoms... I think I may have answered some wrong: 1) do his lips ever turn blue? and 2) is he very pail? She ran a blood test and rang me before Xmas saying he has low blood platelets, which might be an indicator of coeliacs, but the coeliac test will take alot longer to come back... I am still waiting... but in the mean time I have had more time with him that I would normally get due to the holiday period, which led me to note 2 important things: 1) I have noticed his skin is more yellowy and pail, almost jaundice, compared to his elder brother, who has the same amount of exposure to the sun. 2) I also notice that his lips turn purple after running around for a little bit! Are these coeliacs symptoms... possibly due to anemia as a result of coeliacs? Should I ring the doctor to tell here I have noticed these things, in case it indicates another condition? I really need some help and support, and you all seem so knowledgeable, and experienced. Please help. Many thanks, Lydia
