''its Not Coeliac''

Recommended Posts

Not been around for quite a while since about November, when i first posted

and also posted about my son age 12 going through food elimination and tests.

Well he is now back on all food except for wheat, as they think this is now his problem,

but the dietitian stated that 'he is not coeliac like you' so what i want to know is will this

have the same implications at coeliac? he gets the same symptoms when eating gluten/

wheat as i do but they said from his biopsy didn't show it. I guess when we go back in

February i will have to get down to everything with the consultant to spell it all out for me

and explain the differences :unsure:

just because he doesn't show any damage YET, doesn't mean that he won't. Especially if he is already reacting obviously to wheat. Dr.s are extremely reluctant to diagnose celiac if they don't see any damage. Look at it this way, you have it, he has the genetic predisposition to it and is already showing reactions to wheat/gluten... the diet in this situation is the same whether he has celiac or is just intolerant... In my opinion he does have a higher risk of developing it along down the line, and since he already reacts to wheat, go ahead and treat it as celiac and keep him gluten free. It will keep him healthier in the long run. You do not need Dr.s permission to keep him on the diet, Regardless of if it is Celiac or not, he will be healthier without it, right?
