My 4 year old granddaughter gets stomach pain often. She's always been a picky eater and

she's skinny as a twig though strong and active. They eat very healthy, and I don't think

there's any psychological problems. She was checked for celiac, I don't know what they did

exactly but it was pretty unpleasant, and turned out negative. I'm going to ask for more

specifics, now that I've learned more about celiac for myself.

I've looked at Enterolab's website since so many of you talk about it, and I'm wondering,

would it be good for them to do a stool sample study?

This child was a Terrible Two and an even worse Three, with crazy meltdowns over nothing,

but now she's pretty nice. But when I see a website saying that up to 25% of kids have

'functional belly pain' with no explanation that they just outgrow, I wonder if they are

incipient undiagnosed celiacs. I thought this child was just wired tighter than some,

but I suspect food. She eats lots of pasta, and cheese, and fruit.

Now are you sure you're not talking about my daughter? Oh, she was that way, she was born a terrible two (oy, the melt downs.. I remember one she had when she was nine, in a grocery store...)... sigh... and frequent belly pain, since she could talk.

Well, we thought that she was just too tightly wound too, and other people mentioned that... ok, she is, but, putting her on a gluten free diet (finally, at the age of 14, only after DH went on a gluten free diet) has cleared up the belly pain (and the constipation and diarrhea and most of the headaches...).

Her dr. pretty well treated her stomach pain like that too, it'll probably clear up.. well, it didn't, poor thing!

She is skinny as a twig, and loves fruit and misses her subs and pizza (well, I make it, but it's not quite the same - she's very good about it though)

Maybe Enterolab would be an idea - we just decided to go gluten free and see if it helped, and it did, phew!

I LOVE Enterolab! My youngest grandson started projectile vomiting his formula shortly after birth, and had 14 diarrhea diapers in one night. The pediatrician said he just had a "healthy system". Eeks. Then it dawned on me that he probably had allergies to milk, as I do (and grains of course). I spent $350 on a full spectrum test kit from Enterolab, and, sure enough, he was intolerant of all grains, and all milk & dairy. Next I got the sensitivity to grains test for my 3 grown children, and my brother & sister, at $100 per test kit. My 3 kids never used the tests, but my sister & brother did. My sister has it, my brother doesn't. I am intolerant of all grains, all milk & dairy, egg whites, yeast, casein, whey, msg, and maltodextrin & modified food starches that are not derived from corn. Being on the diet is the difference between good health and illness. I highly recommend the Enterolab test kits. Best wishes to you. Let us know if you need any more information on Celiac or any other topic. By the way, my grandson would have crying meltdowns and severe rashes when he would accidentally get glutened or have milk products. It was the difference between a sweet blessing of a child, and someone who was suffering drastically. It's up to all of us to take care of these precious gifts. Good luck. Welda

Hello All, (I"m sorry if this is posted in an inappropriate location --- I was not sure just exactly where this subject would be most appropriately placed.) I have just started the Fasano Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet a few days ago, and I think I have a pretty good understanding of it, but I am still unclear about one aspect of it, and that is processed fruit and vegetable juices. In the Fasano Diet guidelines, it states that "100% fruit and vegetable juices" are permissi
