I have a few questions:
1.) After starting my 16 month old on a gluten-free diet, how long should it take for me to notice a difference?
2.) Are there lasting effects known to stick with babies/toddlers who were very early symptomatic celiacs? (My daughter was a late teether - 14mo. and teeth came in with enamel troubles, weight loss, tummy aches, diarreah, reflux, fatigue, irritability and fussiness) Do celiacs kids grow up to be "Normal" after they are gluten-free? I'm so worried that I didn't figure it out fast enought for my daughter and she will have lasting effects.
3.) Does anybody have any good resources on feeding a toddler with celiac? She eats next to nothing.. I swear if it wasn't for french fries and veggies my daughter would be all bones. She looks like an ethiopian now...any tips on how to fatten them up gluten free???? (She won't eat cheese or milk because they have always caused her tummy aches due to lactose intolerance.)
4.) Also, does anybody know a good pediatric GI in the Washington, D.C. area?
Thanks so much! This board has given me new hope that I can't even explain...
