    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Most likely they are talking about a disended abdomen. If you have ever seen the commercials of the children in 3rd world countries, they have distended tummies.

someone in the posts about ethnic origin said something about one of her relatives having "the celiac stomach". Anyone know what this is?

hmm, is it lower abdomen as in below the waist line or the whole abdomen?

it's usually the whole belly, it almost looks like they swallowed a beach ball.

here is a drawing, of a celiac kid, notice the round tummy, that's probably what they were talking about.

Could it also mean the "sounds" of the stomach that comes from a celiac who is not gluten-free? Or the gas bloating and diarrhea symptoms? My mother calls my lactose intolerance my "Italian Stomach."

Oh WOW that could have been me as a kid, and definately looks like my son. After I have my followup with the GE I told hubby and son this was going to be a drastic change and that there would be huge changes in diet.
