Talk to your son's pediatrician. This is especially important if your son withholds his stool (if he has a bowel movement in a diaper on a regular basis, I'd say it's developmental). The doctor should talk to you about increasing fiber (foods or supplements), fluids, timed toilet sitting after meals, and possibly medication to soften the stool (e.g., Miralax). Also it may help your son to explain what poop is and where it comes from.

Good luck!!

I have heard just the opposite. Casein is not effected by heat.

In Topic: Baking Gf With Egg Replacer?

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. My son is not gluten-free yet. His blood work is inconclusive. The doctor has suggested a biopsy if he doesn't improve soon. So, I don't want him to go gluten free until after the biopsy. He is clearly allergic (IgE) to eggs. So we're egg free. But everything I've tried to bake without eggs has "flopped."

Thanks to all for the egg alternatives.

Forgive me for being (at least slightly) "off topic" from your original post. My son (8 years old) has similar blood work and also an egg allergy (cross-reactivity?).

I'm still trying to figure out what to do for him. His numbers are 126.2 IGG AGA, 22.2 IGA AGA, 17.9 IGA TTG. The gastro has *not* suggested gluten free. Though he has indicated that if my son's symptoms don't improve soon he'll do the endoscopy.

I want to stay with "conventional" medicine for him. I don't want to "just try a gluten-free diet" because I suspect reintroducing gluten would be long and difficult. Also I have some skepticism about Enterolab. He's a kid and I don't want to mess with his diet without solid reasons for doing so (I need the support of my husband, family, school, etc.)

My questions:

- what type of doctor diagnosed gluten sensitivity based on your bloodwork?

- what do you use to substitute for eggs in baked goods?

Pure milk does not have gluten. However, many individuals who are gluten intolerant find that their symptoms don't completely clear up after eliminating gluten.

Many individuals must also eliminate milk and milk products (lactose - a milk sugar and/or casein - a milk protein) to eliminate symptoms. After a period of time/healing, some individuals can reintroduce milk and milk products.

The intolerance to milk may have something to do with the damaged villi (inability to produce the appropriate digestive enzymes in the appropriate quantities) or the similarity of the chemical structure between gluten and casein (the difference is subtle enough that the body attacks casein because it looks like gluten).
