  1. Sarah, Thanks for the information. I'm curious...when were your sons diagnosed and by what method? What tests came out positive? They sound so much like my son, especially in regards to the diaper rash. Any information would be helpful. Thanks, Kim
  2. This is my first post on the message board, but I have been reading them for months. I was hoping someone could help me out and give me some insight on my son's test results. My son is now 2 1/2. When he turned 1, he started to have very frequent bowel movements - average 8 per day. He would develop a terrible diaper rash as well with bleeding. This started out only occuring a couple days per month and has become more frequent since then. He turned 2 in July and since then, has had 8 bowel movements (sometimes more) per day. His stools are soft (not diarrhea). He is in the 90th percentile for height and weight (at leaset at his 2 year check). I took him to a GI doc. Here are his results: The bloodwork for the Gliadins came out positive. His IgA was 30 and his IgG was 106. The tissue tranglutaminase came out negative. He had a fecal fat test (qualitative) which came out increased. His biopsy which was done when he was 27 months came out negative and the doctor did not see any damage. Right now they are checking him for pancreatic insufficiency because of the fat found in his stool. The doctor did mention that it could be the beginning of celiacs. If the pancreatic test comes out negative, I am not sure where to go from here. Has anyone else had this situation. Do you think it could be Celiacs or something else? Thank you so much. Kim
