celiac disease Symptoms In An Infant?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

What are the "common or typical" signs of Celiacs in an infant?? The baby is eating all the glutens and seems fine overall. She is active and crawling. At the most recent pediatric appt her length and weight dropped in percentages (40% L and 20% W) from just 3 months prior. Dr says it is fine. Baby is doing fine.

I know about what celiac disease did to me, but what does it do to babies? What makes parents and DRs suspect celiac disease in a baby?

I think the symptoms are different from each person, not necessarily each age. Is there any symptom aside from the lack of growth? That was one of first indicators for our son however. We actually took him in for diarrhea which turned out to be caused by the Celiac but that had been a recent thing. He was 21.5 mos at that point and, obviously, had Celiac disease for longer than just a few months.

My daughter started with loose stools and bleeding rash as soon as we started feeding her bread as a finger food at about 10 months. Otherwise, she has been a very normal kid. In fact, durring her worst breakout, we had a pediatircian (her regular Dr's partner) reject the idea of celiac disease because she has had no weight loss. Other than the loose stool and rash, we have noticed no other symptoms.

If I understand what I have been reading, most of the "clasic" symptoms are caused by damage from past exposure. Since there is a family history, you might want to start the gluten free died, just to be safe.
