Any Almost Symptomless Young Kids Test Positive?
Posted 29 October 2012 - 05:00 PM
In the year I have been gluten-free my family has been 80% or more gluten free. I still buy them some non-gluten-free packaged snacks or an occasional loaf of bread.
During this time my 5 year old managed to gain 7lbs between 4-5 years old! This is a kid who barely gains 2-3lbs a year, it finally pushed him up to a more matching percentile! (75th height/50th for weight!). He also has excema, his skin feels like sandpaper!
I would like to get him tested I think. But I don't have a positive test to back me up. And he doesn't have a lot of symptoms.

Then again, we are lucky enough to have great insurance that lets us do pretty much anything, so we rarely have to work hard to convince doctors to run tests. Sadly, that usually factors into the equation.

Now, if he gets gluten accidently, he has symptoms. Stomach ache, rash around his mouth. super-grouchy mood for about a week.
