Strange Symptom *warning Mabybe Tmi*

Ok I am currently being tested for Celiac but my son had a bad case of loose stool and there were little egg shaped white pieces floating in it He doesn't eat anything like that. I had someone suggest maybe he should be tested too. Does this sound like a Celiac symptom? After reading about it I know he does have a few symptoms like bad tooth enamel, tummy aches, and ADHD etc. Should I have him tested too?

If you have celiac disease, all first degree relatives (children, siblings, parents) should be tested (regardless of symptoms) and second degree (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) should be tested if they have symptoms.

My son and I were diagnosed. My other son tested negative, but had some tooth enamel issues. Our doctor (celiac specialist) did an endoscopy on him based ONLY on this. He has no other symptoms and a negative blood test. She was surprised when the biopsy was negative. We are watching him closely to see if he develops any other symptoms. In any case, he will at least have the blood test every two years.

Could the white spots be fat? Visible fat in the stool is a sign of celiac disease . . .

It certainly couldn't hurt to have him tested, and since you are waiting for your results, you might as well get the ball rolling with him . . . What would be the reason to not have him tested?

Just a protective mommy I guess. I don't want him to have to get stuck if he doesn't have to. lol It always makes me feel bad. So unless it is absolutely a must I try to avoid it. But based on what you have told me I think maybe he should be tested even if I come back negative.

Thanks!

Sounds like your mommy intuition is telling you gluten may be affecting your kiddo. I agree with cara - get the tests done on him asap. Good luck!
