Help With Diagnosing

Hi everyone...we just learned that my son (9 months) has an allergy to oats with a potential allergy to barley. He also has acid reflux and suffers a bit from constipation (we need to give him Maalox twice a day to keep him going). He has always had eczema rashes on his face/legs. My brother-in-law had celiacs so I'm wondering if my son could too. He doesn't have diarrhea ever and is very big for his age (over 24 lbs at 9 months) so he doesn't exhibit some typical symptoms.

I also have 2.5 yr old daughter - she's only 22.5 pounds, gains weight very slowly. no interest in eating most of the time, has acid reflux (diagnosed at 7 mon.), and suffers from chronic constipation (requires signif. meds daily to go). She also was born with a cleft lip/palate so we've always attributed her eating difficulties to the myriad of things wrong in her mouth. I haven't seen any obvious food allergies. I know she doesn't exhibit some classic symptoms, but am wondering if she could have celiac disease too.

Anyone with similar situations or thoughts? Thanks!

camurph1023,

It sounds like both of your children would benefit from testing for celiac disease, especially since there is a family history of the disorder. I know that I was a constipated child, and both of my children have eczema that gets worse after a gluten accident. They are also very tall for their ages, but their weight is falling down the charts at a moderate pace. (All three of us have celiac disease.) I hope my thoughts are helpful to you, and good luck to you and your children!
