Celiac Vs Gluten Intolerance
Posted 26 March 2012 - 09:06 AM
DD (2.5) has gluten tolerance I am fairly certain, however, her panel and biopsy were negative for celiac. (she had been off gluten for a week with one and two weeks with one, I know, results aren't for sure accurate because of this)
So my question is, Can she have bone loss, malnutrition, "failure to thrive", huge belly, teeth problems, etc---and it "just" be gluten tolerance?
Just want to make sure that gluten tolerance can cause these major side effects as well.
She has other problems as well like:
-chronic yeast infections
-horrible night/nap sweats
-allergy eyes- poor color
-Overall just doesn't feel "good"
and a few others that I am sure I am forgetting.
She goes to the Pediatric orthopedic Friday since her leg has taken so long to heal, is crocked, and still hurts her so much. Keep her in your prayers please and thanks again for all the help. I am very grateful to have access to this form.

I'll dig up an article and get back to you on this. In the meantime, I'm thinking of you and sending prayers your way!

thanks for the reply:) I really REALLY believe her hair has grown SO SO SO much in the past month (gluten free) And her stomach is so much smaller. On another note, she is constipated today!? what in the world? she use to be the opposite?!!?
Keep in mind that kids are kids and things happen that won't always be related to gluten. Constipation happens a lot when you're dehydrated or even low on fluid in your body. It could be something she ate (too much cheese or something). Up her water intake a few ounces a day and see what it does.
Honestly, I think that if the constipation were a result of being glutened, you would have other symptoms. If she's making progress and this popped up out of nowhere, it's probably something minor.

Oh, your question.......after a discussion with our ped., yes, it can be "just" GI.
