      Hi Skylark.

      Because she was responding so well to the gluten-free diet, I couldn't bare to take her off it for the test. Believe me. I thought about it, but I don't think she would have done it. By then, she was tired of hurting and throwing up. She had been on it for about a month prior to the test so the results didn't surprise me.

      The Casein information is interesting. Never heard of that before. Milk is something she naturally stays away from. She's never been able to tolerate it. Thank you for the information. I'll be looking into the narcotic effect from gliadorphin. The whole flour craving thing threw me off....

      Thank you so much for the information, Pricklypear1971. Love your sign in name. I'll be following up on both your recommendations. There has got to be something I can do for her. Waiting is no longer an option.

      Tucson Gi/pediatric Celiac Doctors

      My mom was diagnosed with Celiac. Now my daughter has been having stomach problems since she was a baby, and has had some strange food cravings, such as sneaking flour and eating it dry by the fistful. She had a negative growth chart, severe constipation, reflux, and bacteria and fungal overgrowth in her small intestines, but tested negative for Celiac at the age of 4. The test also showed she was low in iron.

      For several years her symptoms improved. Her growth chart moved into the 10th percentile and stayed there. Her constipation was manageable with Senakot, and her stomach pain lessened.

      This summer her stomach pain returned with a vengeance. It occurred more often, and was followed by severe vomiting. We placed her on a gluten-free diet, and then tested her for Celiac. Again, the test came back negative, but her vomiting has lessened substantially. It could be Celiac. It could be something else.

      We are at a complete loss, and desperate to help her. Can anybody recommend a good GI, pediatric doctor in Tucson?
