T-Beth replied to T-Beth's topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseI'm glad to hear that your daughter is doing well also. I'm still trying to completely understand how this occurs and why there isn't a more better way to find this problem in all people. I have read in several articles that Celiac Disease is one of the most misdiagnosed diseases due to the lack of doctors asking about nutrition. I have had to take my cj off of dairy products also. He can occasionally eat hard cheeses but that's it. I have found that he actually loves SILK vanilla soy milk. This has definately become a learning experince for me. Everyday there is something else I have to learn to keep him from becoming ill. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I hope your daughter continues to thrive.
I am a single mother of a beautiful 20 month old boy. My son went through several months of diarrhea, weight lose, continually eating but not being able to hold anything in. He was alway tired and fussy. I thought I'd never figure out what was wrong with my baby. After many trips to the doctors and several test that all came back negative, I finally started looking into symptoms myself. After weeks of searching on line for the symptoms my son had; I was given two very likely problems. One Crohn's Disease and the other Celiac Disease. Finally I spoke with my son's pediatrician about gluten. He said yes that's it lets stop all gluten products and see what happens. After two weeks of my son and I being on a gluten free diet his diarrhea had stopped. I never thought I would be so happy to see a normal bowel movement in my life. Now two months later, my son is thriving. He has gained some weight back, he's playing again, and he is eating regular again. Is there anyone else out there that diagnosed their chid of Celiac Disease before the doctors did?
