19-month Old Dd Just Diagnosed

2 posts in this topic

Hello all.

My daughter, Vicky, is 19 months old and was just diagnosed with Celiacs. My dad was diagnosed (in his 50s) about 3 years ago. Presently, the diagnosis has been through the anti-endomesial antibody blood screening and we visit a pediatric GI doc next week.

I'm sure our story is familiar, so y'all don't need the minute details. As a baby she had reflux (controlled by Prevacid) and when she transitioned to solid food, she seemed to do ok. We took her off the medication at about 12 months and she was just getting into table food. However, she was not a big eater at all and at 15 months, she had gained weight (compared to 12 months), but not along the same curve (normally the 30-40% in weight). In June/July we noticed that her eating was getting very sparse and that she was getting skinny

I know it's going to be tough to adapt your daughter to a new diet, but there are so many great gluten-free foods she will enjoy, that the transition may not be that difficult.

I agree that you need to keep her on glutens until after you visit the GI doc. Good luck to you.
