My 18 month old fell down the charts both in height and weight. Her gi ped said they look for them to grow in height to ensure the diet iIs working. I'd try to see a gi ped.

In Topic: For Those With Constipated Kids-How Long To See Improvement?

My daughters constipation got better after 2 weeks but only with the removal of dairy. Seems like whenever I give her dairy she gets constipated. Not sure if she will ever be able to have dairy. Did you remove dairy? Or only gluten?

It took us two weeks to notice an improvement. She gained 2 lbs over the first month. Eating was better, mood was better, more active, happier, definitely more energy! I think she is still healing though. It's only been 2 months and she is 20 months so we are also dealing with the terrible 2's. It's tough to know what the full extent of Improvement in behavior is!

In Topic: Babies With Celiac, What Did You First Notice?

Generally, besides stomach upsets and diarrhea/constipation, symptoms can include irritability, blanking out (staring into space), anxiety, clinginess, aggressive behavior, and moodiness/crankiness. This is what is taught at celiac conferences, and my nephew had ALL of these symptoms from a very early age. Also, look for toeing in of his feet once he starts walking--this can be an indication of Vitamin D deficiency.

These are all the symptoms my daughter had! I didn't know about the walking, my daughter does that too. She was very constipated, we had to give her miralax and then she would have awful blowouts. I thought she might be autistic because of the behavior. I wonder about the vitamin d deficiency though...now I'm worried!

In Topic: Milk

Hi, I asked my dr a similar question. The milk does not cause further damage or slow down the repair but if they develop temporary lactose intolerance it will just create discomfort and it will be hard to tell if they are getting better. My daughter is currently lactose intolerant, if she consumes dairy she gets really fussy and irritable and uncomfortable. If your son seems to tolerate it fine then there is no need to remove it from his diet. The milk isn't causing the damage, it's just so hard to digest that those with a lot of damage experience pain when drinking it. Once the gut is healed the pain goes away (in some/many cases but not always). Good luck! I wasn't seeing much improvement on my daughter, but once I cut out dairy I noticed a lot of improvement. If you are noticing improvement without cutting dairy I'd keep it. No gluten and no dairy is hard!
