  1. Tiffany: Thank you for your response. I guess I am unsure which route to go with testing. I just want the most specific and definitive diagnosis that I can get for her, and I am still unsure how to go about that as there seem to be many different blood/stool tests as well as the biopsy option. THis is my biggest area of confusion. I am also hopeful that the diet will help her, but other than the lack ofweight gain, I would not have known she had the problem. How will I know if the diet is helpful? Thanks, John jstillwell@tiac.net
  2. Greetings: I just found out through bloodwork that my 14 month old is suspected of having Celiac Disease, but they suggested a biopsy to confirm. This bloodworked was ordered because of her lack of weight gain. She is 16.5 lbs. My wife and I thought her lack of weight gain might be attributable to her previously diagnosed allergy to Milk. We have had her dairy free for the past two months already and we had introduced Rice Dream (which I now find out is not Gluten free). I have a number of questions that I cannot find answers to. Could the previously diagnosed "dairy allergy" be related to Celiac Disease? At 14 months could considerbale damage have been done to the intestines already? She was breast fed for the first 12 months. If we are to have the biopsy, should we hold off on the gluten-free diet? How is EnteroLab different? If we are to put her through tests, I want to do it only once, and do it properly. I of course, want the most accurate and specific testing that is recommended, but opinions seem to vary. Can anyone advise or educate me? With Gratitude for your help, John Jstillwell@tiac.net
