I am gluten free, haven't had official blood tests for Celiac, but I can't wear socks even in the middle of winter. I can be in Minnisota in 10 dgree weather with nothing but my tennys on. Yes, I am wearing clothes. :lol:

But, I just have a t-shirt and maybe a light windbreaker on. During the summer months is the worst for me. My skin feels like it is burning off and I can't get cool. If I dare wear a pair of socks I will get so hot I will nearly pass out. Dr's have never been able to explain it.

My boys were always hot. Nothing to do with celiac disease. Found that with other little boys, too. We moms wearing heavy sweaters and they in t shirts.

When I was a child I refused to wear socks. I would go out in the middle of winter and run in the snow barefoot. My mom always yelled at me that I would get frostbite on my feet and make me come back in and put socks and boots on. Sometimes I would walk part way to school and take off my socks when I was out of sight of my mom. My feet were ALWAYS hot. I moved to the south and the heat was unbearable the first few years-- I felt like I was going to pass out just walking between my car and work. Strangely, when I started to get really sick I lost my intolerance of heat and started feeling cold even when it was not very cold outside. I thought it was because I got used to the milder winters and was getting older (my mom has always been cold). But now that I have given up wheat, I am noticing again that the heat is unbearable and I can't wear socks without getting overheated. Our AC went out and our place got up to 83 degrees before it got fixed. I thought it was like a sauna and spent the whole time it was out feeling sick. My husband didn't think it was that hot. He took me out to a store though to walk around in the AC. As soon as I cooled down I felt better. Now, I'm not officially diagnosed, so I can't say if your little boy's refusal to wear socks is because of celiac's or just because many toddlers don't like to wear clothes. However, I do suspect this disease can mess with temperature regulation in the body.

My 3 kids and I are the same way! Although I wear clothes or someone might call the cops! :o) I never would have thought about a connection to the disease. But it makes sense!

I think it's a kid thing. Both of my kids were like that, I was like that too and DH has always been that way (DH and I don't have Celiac). I stopped fighting them on the coat thing. They have to bring one just in case, but I usually leave it up to them. Now if we're skiing, that's another story ;):P

Same here. I'm always cold and want to dress them accordingly. My husband runs hot too. I like to snuggle with the three of them because they are nice and warm. Even when they were babies I would go by how my husband felt, hot/cold, when dressing the kids. They are old enough now to tell me. I always know when my oldest son is hot because his ears get beet red. :lol:

Some kids also have sensory issues and they either really don't like how things feel on their feet or don't want things on their feet to interfere with the sensory input they would otherwise get.

I'd vote for more of a "kid" thing and than a Celiac thing. It only gets worse! I can remember being appalled that my cousin let her son come to Christmas Eve in a t-shirt with no coat. When asked about it she just looked exasperated and said something about some battles not being worth the fight. He was 3 or 4 at the time and I got the feeling there was a battle...she just didn't win! LOL!
