Baby Symptoms Of Celiac Anyone?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have Celiac disease but was never FULLY sure until now due to the fact I never had a complete panel (but since eating something with gluten after 1.5 years I've been sick). I had been trying to figure out my 3 month old son's allergies since birth. I've come to the conclusion that he is allergic to dairy, gluten, and soy. Previously when I had dairy he would be congested, mucousy stools, trouble sleeping,etc. But I still was not positive that was the offending food.

Last Saturday for dinner I ate a milk shake and breaded chicken. Immediately the next day he had mucousy stools, projectile vomiting (which he never did).He has quit taking naps, screams in pain randomly, etc. He no longer vomits now, but now has diarrhea, bloating, a pimple like rash similar to my gluten one, and a low grade 99.9 fever. I am very concerned. His pediatrician didn't seem too worried sense his fever isn't high enough. She said it could either be a bug or allergies.

It seems like such a coincidence for it to be a virus. Does any one else's child have similar symptoms including the fever with gluten?

And does anyone know how effective genetic testing for Celiac would be for him?

My son has the same reactions to gluten and dairy. For years we went back and forth to the doctor  and ER, with him in screaming pain of his stomach. The doctors told us it was his enlarged Vegus nerve. It wasnt until I put all of his probloms on paper that and had a list of things it could be and showed it to my doctor that she actually decided to check him out. If he has problems with bread and dairy stop giving it to him, demand to see a GI doctor. Follow your intincts, Goodluck.

If you are going to a pediatric gastroenterologist, you might have a 3 month wait for the specialty.  You must continue giving the patient gluten for the testing to be accurate.  (Celiac is diagnosed from the damage caused from eating gluten ~ if you don't have the damage the will not be a diagnoses.)

My son had a lot of GI issues as a baby( projectile vomit, diarrhea), plus skin rashes and was a very colicky baby. I wish I had pushed the issue a bit more. He was finally diagnosed this past month after almost missing it again( I had a hint in June last year and after being told it was highly unliely he ad Celiac, then given the wrong tests, then finally the Celiac panel, then biopsy, we were finally able to put a ame on it). Now we're struggling with DS2 chronic urticaria with unknown cause, tested negative on Celiac blood panel( right below cutoff), erratic growth( doctor does not seem concerned...I am). We cut him off gluten since our house is gluten-free anyway. Still looking and trying to figure out the pieces of this puzzle. All of that to say that keep asking questions, look around and follow your intuition.
