  1. Our pediatrician requested that our son do a gluten free diet for 4 weeks and then have gluten for 4, because of symptoms he was experiencing (stomach pain, fingernails not growing). During the first week his stomach pain continued but by the end of the 2nd week it went away, but still no improvement with the fingernails. The gluten-free diet ended August 1, so he has had gluten for a couple of weeks, he has only complained once of a stomach-ache (before it was daily), he has had other issues like mild indigestion and gas and now has all of a sudden developed a canker sore in his mouth (He has never had one) I know these can be linked to celiacs but can also be nothing. His next appointment with his Dr. is in Sept. I had hoped to see a clear difference and now I am more confused. Could this be Celiacs?
