My husband and I suspect that our daughter who is 5 has Celiac or at least gluten intolerance. She has some of the tell-tale signs including increasing behavioral issues, stomach aches, bowel movements of just mucus, diarrhea, constipation.

Are there specific labs I should request from our pediatrician? I know that these test aren't always conclusive. We plan to take her off all gluten regardless.

Sincerely,

Mary

Hi there,

My twin 5.5 year old girls have just been diagnosed with Celiac.

- Don't reduce the gluten in your daughter's diet until you've completed testing--you'll possibly get false negatives if she isn't ingesting gluten.

- Tests to do:

This has the best, simple overview.

Find a GREAT GI who knows Celiac. If you are near Los Angeles, Dr. Michelle Pietzak at Children's Hospital LA is amazing. She is also a researcher--which means she is interested in the tiniest things!

Thinking of you!
