Hello - Does anyone have a referral for a pediatrician in northern Colorado? I live in Fort Collins, CO, but would be willing to travel for a quality doctor. My daughter is nine and is gluten-free. Her current doctor is not well versed in gluten intollerances and realted issues. Thanks

My daughter had many years of stomach aches beginning at age three. Severity and frequency varied, but were getting worse as she got older. We had a very frustrating few years with her doctor, but were able to self-diagnose as having problems with gluten about 12 months ago(EnteroLab). Since then we have had my daughter on a gluten free diet, and had a big sigh of relief because we finally knew what the issue was. Her improvement was immediate and the stomach pains were gone, it was awesome to finally have my daughter feeling better. Fast forward to today and my daughter's stomach aches have started to pop up again. For about the last three weeks, my daughter has had a slight stomach ache every three days or so. We always ask how bad it hurts on a scale of one to ten, and the recent stomahc pains are about a one to three. My daughter is good and differentiating between gluten related stomach aches and other stomache feelings(too much candy, hungry, gas, ect.), and she says these are like the gluten stomach aches she used to get, just not as bad. While there was a learning curve when we first started the gluten free diet, we feel we are fairly experienced at this point and are confident that my daughter is not eating any gluten. Has anyone else come across this? I think my next step will be to cut out the other heavy hitters(soy, casein, and egg) to see what happens. Any other suggestions and similar experiences would be great. Thanks for your help.
