My son is 21 months old. He has been unofficially diagnosed with Celiac Disease based on symptoms. He has been gluten free for 8 months. The one symptom that has not gone away is constipation. He goes 4-5 days between bm and when he goes it's painful for him. I cannot stand to see him like this anymore. He takes a tsp of miralax everyday. I have tried increasing the miralax, but then he gets diarrhea. I would like to figure out what is causing his problems instead of just treating the symptom. He is allergic to dairy and peanuts. He also had an IgG blood test run when he was 8 months old. It came back positive for dairy, peanuts, eggs, strawberries, banana, and brewers yeast. After having the skin test done the allergist said we did not need to avoid anything but the dairy and nuts. His GI also said that the IgG testing does not mean anything and he can eat those foods. I am now wondering if we should avoid those foods. I have been keeping a food diary off and on for the last year, but I can't figure this out. I don't know what to do for him anymore. I need help figuring this out.
