D Hello! My ten yr old son recently had a blood test come back positive for Celiac. We are having a biopsy done this coming Friday. He also has Juvenile Diabetes and there is a close link between the two diseases - both are autoimmune. My MIL has had Celiac for four years now so even though he hadn't been having symptoms, we had him tested to be on the safe side.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and receiving many helpful hints!

Welcome to the site, it is filled with wonderful people who offer a lot of advise and support!

It's a good thing you went ahead and had your son tested, saved him from having a lot of GI problems. I have a 9 year old daughter that has been dx and gluten free for 17 months, she is doing well!

Take care!
