  1. Hi. Your story sounds very similar to mine. I just wanted you to know that my sister was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease (at age 30.) I got tested and came out negative...but my 5 year old daughter was complaining of stomach aches for months so we had her tested...and guess what...she was positive for Celiac (through positive blood work and an endoscopy.) My sister's GI told her that EVERYONE in her family should be tested (mother/father/sister/brother) so you definately should be tested as well. Because my daughter is positive, her brother and father were tested as well. Everyone else is negative...but as you can see, the Celiac gene can skip around in a family. Definately have your son tested...at least you'll know for sure. And don't put him on a gluten free diet before the tests are run...
