Learning so much from your posts, experience and difficulties!

Testing for Celiac, waiting for the results,

Daughter 10, new with questions,

1- Yellow poops, sometimes frothy, sometimes diarrhea, firmer after with enzymes, but still yellow to tan, never normal (brown and firm).

Been like this forever, I thought this was a toddler thing years ago, (yes, I know....)

2- Eats (craves) gluten foods. Yesterday, craved oatmeal, she had two bowels for breakfast, for lunch craved pasta, 2 1/2 bowels, very hyper all day. Today...... very, very, tired.

She gets hyper with gluten, and then the next day she gets very tired. Has leaky gut with lots of food allergies.

She is also irritable, whiney (bi***), complainey, etc......Sheesh..can be exhausting

Does this sound Celiac familiar?

I really thinks she's Celiac, but I'm testing, but I see in the posts, the test results are not always definitive

But looking at the posts, don't want the diagnosis, but at this point, better quality of life!!!!

Thans for any info

Testing for Celiac, waiting for the results,

Daughter 10, new with questions,

We had pale sand colored poops with one of our celiac daughters before being diagnosed. The firmness was never consistent until 4 months after being gluten free.

2- Eats (craves) gluten foods. Yesterday, craved oatmeal, she had two bowels for breakfast, for lunch craved pasta, 2 1/2 bowels, very hyper all day. Today...... very, very, tired.

color=#FF0000]Ahhhh....yes, we had this too. My daughter seemed to eat only gluten foods.....that was all she asked for and those were always a sure fire win if I was looking for her to eat. Her activity level was awful. She'd trail a block behind our other daughter while bike riding. She too was awfully crabby.

Does this sound Celiac familiar?

I suppose it sounds familiar because we experienced it first hand. However, the process for us took about 1 year to get her diagnosed. We did allergy testing to see if it was another food "allergy", blood testing, biopsies etc before getting her completely diagnosed. Now myself, I haven't been officially diagnosed as my tests came back inconclusive (I've been investing so much time in them, I haven't taken care of myself yet). I can tell you that if I eat gluten...my chief complaint is the tiredness (sometimes referred to as brain fog on this board.....and it is noticed in me about the second day.

Depending on your testing, you should really get some answers soon. My daughters blood work came back very positive and she had the biopsy to confirm Celiac. The other daughter just had positive blood work. Between the complete blood panel testing, biopsy route (if chosen), gene testing etc. I hope you get some answers that lead your daughter to feeling better very soon!
