Im probably a bit ahead of myself here but with my little boy being coeliac (only got the results yesterday!) and having to get my 4year old tested next, if I did decide i wanted more children when would they need to be tested? Would they have to consume gluten for a period of time beforehand? Im just not clear on it. With my son, he wasnt growing properly and knew he had problems from him being less than a year old. Hes just been diagnosed as coeliac at 2years old.

Does anyone on here have a new baby that will need to be tested??

Really finding this site useful and supportive as struggling at the moment so very much appreciate your responses :) Thank you

Doctors say you should be on gluten foods at least 3 months but little kids can take longer.
