  1. Thanks, you two. We are taking him off of gluten TODAY. We are lucky, he'll eat just about anything. I can't even sweep the floor with him awake becasue he will follow me around trying to eat the food out of the piles I sweep up. Does anyone know, do we still keep dairy out of his diet, too...or can we add that back in, since it didn't seem to make any difference? Take Care, Julie
  2. Hi all, I am Julie, Mom to Daniel who is 19 months old. Daniel has had runny poops and stinky gas since I can remember, really. Recently though, for the past few months we've experienced new symptoms: eczema like rash on his body, sometimes worse than other times...sometimes red, sometimes raised and scratchy bloody stools...but not bloody like he passed too big if a stool...more than that. Mostly his stools are coated in a slimy, what I could call mucusy substance...most often fruit punch colored. A few times, I've seen it yellow colored. Frequent, almost CONSTANT pooping and/or gas Stinky, stinky gas and poops Eats CONSTANTLY...he is our little garbage disposal...like he is always hungry. Went from 50th percentile down to 25 in only a few months In the last few weeks, he's been up at around midnight screaming in pain. Seems like gas pain as he passes stinky gas a few times and I can hear his stomach rumbling I told the pediatrician all about this and she had me take him off of dairy first...we did that...no big difference, really. Poops seemed a little less runny..but still bloody and mucousy. She had me do a whole bunch of stool samples (boy was that fun) but I don't know what she tested for...I think some bacteria, lead, other stuff...I don't know. It was about 6 vials of poo...lucky mommy! Now, since all of that was negative, she wants to do a blood panel, which we did today. Again, I don't know exactly WHAT tests we are performing. I went in there unprepared...this is my easy kid...I have one with Turner Syndrome (and luckily, she doesn't have celiac!)...so I just don't know WHAT to expect. So, what am I looking for in the blood tests, what tests do I need to make sure that the doctor ordered? What test will tell us for sure that this poor little guy does or does not have celiac? Also, on a side note, his father has chronic diahhrea (sp?). He says he has NEVER had a solid poop in his whole life. He is always running to the bathroom...even in the middle of the night. Poor guy. He is overweight though...but his belly is often hard and distended. So now I'm wondering if HE has it! Thanks in advance for all of your help! Take Care, Julie
