Does This Sound Like Celiac?

Recommended Posts

My youngest child is almost 6 months old. He is exclusively breastfed, only this week have I offered him a few bites of baby food. However his entire life his gas has been extremely nasty, and it is getting worse. I mean almost inhuman! No kidding! His bowel movements are normal for breastfed babies, and they are foul, but they have absolutely nothing on his gas! Should this raise my concern for him also having celiac?


dd age 12 -- diagnosed celiac via 2 positive bloodtests april 08 & biopsy june 08

ds age 5 -- bloodwork negative aug 2008

ds age 3 -- not tested yet

ds infant -- not tested yet

I would certainly keep an eye on it. You could try working on elimination to give yourself an idea. If you are nursing, you would have to eliminate too. Dairy is a very common thing for babies to have an issue with too.
