Daughter Recently Diagnosed, Questioning Diagnosis
Posted 18 December 2012 - 12:38 PM
Also I just had my oldest daughter (3years old) tested and she came back negative. DH and I are going to be getting tested too just to see if it truely is Celiac. But I just need some insite as to if you think this truely can be Celiac or if it is possible it could be something else

Could it be celiac? Of course. It is possible it was caught early enough that she wasn't so terribly sick that this became truly horrid yet and she wasn't terribly damaged. Could it be something? Sure, why not? But why risk poisoning her and making her sick and risking all the complications of celiac because she is acting her age? While false negative blood tests abound, false positives don't. As a matter of fact I can't recall ever having heard of one although someone else may have. IMO she is acting (and pooping as often) as a kid about to turn 2, I don't see a reason to mistrust a medical diagnosis over that.

If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you, And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
I ask of you a very simple question, Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only, Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home

I'd look for sources of contamination first. as false positives are not common at all.
But, as a mother of a 2.5yr old, eh... a lot of what you are describing is 100% normal. Or is a product of a tired child who didn't sleep well. Or teething (two year molars can come before two years). Or a cold/virus as is SO common this time of year. Or a growth spurt/developmental milestone (which still affect behavior, but are harder to pinpoint as they get older as they might just be things like understanding time concepts or grammar concepts).
