I have a 13 month old daughter who has had continual loose stools for months. When she first started solids I just thought they were loose because she ate lots of fruit and veg, now the stools are becoming much nastier in smell, full of undigested food, they are very pale in colour.

I took her to the docs a few weeks ago and have an appointment to see a paeditrican in 2 weeks time. Apart from her having the loose stools she has a constant runny nose, wind, her moods seem to becoming one of a irritated child but seems happy alot of the time also. She hasn't lost any weight but hasn't put any on in a month.

I have celiac disease, which I had from being a child, it runs in my family, I have an aunt with it and also my great-grandmother had it. My mum said my symptoms were mainly vomitting and crying in pain all the time, though I never lost weight.

Do you think there could be a chance with these symptoms that she has celiac?

Many thanks
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

My daugher was 2 yrs old when diagnosed with Celiac disease. She was only 20 lbs. at her 2 yr check up which concerned her dr. and he asked us a series of questions many about her stool. Her stool was loose, light in color, look like it had pieces of food in it and would float in the toilet. All of which the Gastro dr. said were consistant with Celiac. She never vomitted and was on the curve as far as weight until she started eating solid foods. After being on solid foods she was losing weight and not eating. when she did eat she would have alot of gas, was cranky some of the time and would say her belly hurt. She would also get cold sores and her belly was big.

Go to the doctor and get her tested. Especially since you and others in your family have it also. When my daughter was diagnosed the doctor told us the immediate family should also be tested.

Good luck!
