If you do that and need help interpreting what they say before you can talk to the doctor, lots of knowledgable people here can help you.
Also wanted to say re: your 6 year old, that there are gluten-free versions of everything he likes: o-shaped cereals, GOOD tasting gluten-free breads for the pb&j sandwiches (I recommend the gluten-free pantry favorite sandwich bread mix), and wonderful pasta products made from non-gluten-free grains (Tinkyada, DeBoles, and many others). No shortage of ideas on what to eat are available here!
Finally, often people with celiac disease are lactose intolerant at least initially. You might find that you may need to eliminate dairy for a while. (If this is the case, you'll need to consider calcium supplementation.) That is, even gluten-free, some bowel symptoms may continue if lactose is a problem until the villi heal. Note: there are dairy-free cheese products for your son's mac 'n cheese favorite if need be.
Keep us posted!
