  1. My 4 year old grandson was sick for 6 months. At first his pediatrician said he had a virus, but he couldn't seem to shake it. Sometimes he'd be so sick he'd end up in the ER. His color was horrid and he was just lethargic most days. He'd lost 10lbs off his already thin body. Many tests showed nothing wrong. Finally he was sent to a GI specialist. His colonoscopy showed some lesions that she believed were from the prep. His bloodwork showed a genetic predisposition but not that he had any active disease. In desperation, my daughter put him on a gluten free diet. Within just a few days, he was feeling better, eating better and keeping his food down. In 2 months he had more energy then I ever remember him having and he's gained some weight. His GI doctor then diagnosed him with gluten intolerance. It would probably be worthwhile to have your grandson tested.
