Think My Daughter Might Have Celiac-starting The Whole Process

Recommended Posts

My 3 yr old has been complaining for weeks now (probably 3 months) that her stomach hurts, 1-4 times a day, at random times. It goes away though after a minute and then she's fine. I brought it up at her 3 yr check up and her ped. told me to monitor it and call back if it keeps up, which it has-last night she woke up crying because her stomach hurt and then she had massive diah.-the first time she's had it after complaining of her stomach. It had a really bad odor too-not normal. My husband's cousin's 2 children have celiac and the episode last night got me thinking about it-she really doesn't have any other symptoms, except she's very thin for her age and doesn't eat a lot at all-she's 3 and weighs 27lbs (10th percentile). I have another appt. with her ped. next week and I'd like to bring up celiac but don't even know where to start, if I'm reading correctly, it sounds like blood work at this age is not accurate? sara

My daughters blood work was positive at 18 months old.... if you get a positive there is no question so I believe its worth a shot.

I'll bring up the blood test at her appt. since there's a chance it might pick it up-my husband's sister has a lot of celiac symptoms and had blood work done-she said some came back 'gray' zone?? The gi specialist suggested the biopsy but she won't have it done-she's 22 and she just doesn't want to deal with it right now. But if she has it, then the heredity thing is a lot closer to my kids. sara
