Morgans Mommy

15 Mo Old With Celiac?

Recommended Posts

Im new here.  My 15mos old appears to have Celiac Desease.  She is finally doing better now and almost a completely different and happy baby now that I have removed Gluten all together from her diet.  She would get horribe painful attacks, and the doctors could not seem to figure out whats wrong with her.  Any advice for the newbie?  Do Celiacs do okay with Soy milk?  She doesn't seem to do well with regular milk.

Just want to make sure you realize that she cannot be tested for Celiac if she isn't eating gluten. So if you need a diagnosis for school, day care, hospitalizations, summer camps, etc., she will need to be eating gluten to get tested. I know that seems like a long way off, but kids grow up fast.

Here's a good place to start

I just wanted to let you know that sometimes the doctors will test a child for Celiac with the tTG - IgA test

and that this test is prone to false negatives in young children and babies.

 

DGP-IgG is the better test for young children.
