:( I was diagnosed with celiac disease, and since my kids have similar symptoms, my PCP suggested we all go gluten-free. Charlie, the 5-yr-old, ate a piece of bread 3 or 4 days ago, but has not had gluten (I think) since. Tonight, he's got steatorrhea and a tummyache again. I don't know what to tell him; he doesn't understand why he's still sick. I would rather not have him get all those tests, but do you think I should? We also went off dairy just to make sure we would get better faster. We're not, though.

I start getting changed stools around day 2 after gluten, and that portion lasts another 3 days or so, on average, for me. Doesn't sound out of the normal for a gluten reaction at all. A piece of bread is a lot of gluten!
