Is Bleeding A Symptoms?
0

4 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if bleeding is a common symptom of celiac disease? Sounds as if plain ole diarrhea or constipation are the main symptoms. My daughter has had trace amounts of blood on occasion in her stools on/off for the past year now. She's 2 1/2 years old. We had her tested and the IgA's and the IgG's were positive, but the other two were negative. The doc wants to retest her soon to see if they've changed. Anyway, I'm most concerned about the bleeding of course. I haven't tried the gluten free diet because we're going to get the blood test in the next week or so. After that, I plan on starting gluten free, and maybe even casein free as well. Has anyone had similar experiences?

Can infants get hemmaroids(spelling sorry)? I know that I had them while going through the diagnosis processes and that caused bleeding in the stools. You might want to have the baby checked for that.

My child has bleeding from a rectal skin tag. The combination of diarhea and constipation associated with celiac disease causes this. The skin tag is what convinced the GI to run the tests for celiac disease. Since your child is not on the diet yet, warm soaks in the tub and using mositened wipes in the bathroom can help.
