  1. Hello, I am new to this forum and hope I can get some answers! My 18 month old has been steadily not gaining weight since 10 months. She is officially off the charts. Her stools are loose all the time, at time almost beige in color, and despite eating a ton of food she just can't gain weight. We just recently tested her for allergies and celiacs blood tests. I tried a cows milk free diet with no change in stools. then, I did put her on gluten free diet for a few weeks and her poops became normal for the first time since birth! I spoke to her peds and went back on gluten for 2 weeks then did all the tests. Her poops became loose again 48 hrs after reintroducing gluten. However, her igg and iga were in the normal range, and even though her rast for wheat was slightly elevated at 0.17 it is not considered am allergy. She did test positive for class 2 cows milk allergy! So I am putting her on dairy free diet but my question is should I still a valid gluten? Can she still have celiacs? It does run in our family. Her inflammation markers were also negative. Her plt were elevated also but that can just be a reactive response to being allergic to cmp? I just don't know if I should push for a biopsy or if it is not needed at all to confirm no celiacs? Thank u. Laura
