12 Month Old With Symptoms (Cross Post)

Hello everyone,

My daughter was diagnosed with celiac just after her 2nd birthday.  She is now almost 4 and is doing very well on the gluten free diet - a very healthy kid!  We have no other family history of this, and now my son just turned one, and he has been having diahrea for a few weeks.  (Lots of undigested food in his diapers).  It seems quite early for him to be showing symptoms if he has celiac disease... am I wrong?  We are quite suspicious, so I've put him on a gluten free diet for a few days to see if it makes a difference and it hasn't so far.   It has been 4 days.   How long should I try this to determine if it makes a difference?  If it isn't gluten, he may be having a dairy intolerance or something else?  (By the way I know that if we eventually request testing we will need him to eat gluten regularly prior to the test... just trying to determine if diet helps him at this point). 

 

Thanks all. -Rachel

Just my thought but, he probably hasn't been eating gluten very long.  It could be dairy, too.  Or something else. What does the doctor say?  Could it be something else?

 

I would think you would see a bit of improvement in a baby in a couple of weeks gluten-free.  But, if its just a virus and its residual problems, it might be better in 2 weeks, too.

I have not experienced a baby having celiac disease (my kid was 12 when I was diagnosed), nor have I done a lot of research on the subject, but consider keeping him on gluten and eliminating all dairy. If you do not see results within a week or so, then talk to your doctor about when you should do a celiac blood panel.

My kid tested negative, but she will get retested every few years or sooner if symptoms present.

Go with your gut instinct as something is not right. It might just be a bug like Karen suggested! Let's hope!
