  1. I am at the very beginning of my search for answers in helping my 3 1/2 year old son. He has never had a firm stool and as a result he has low iron counts. He is very healthy otherwise and is fine with his height/weight/development. He usually has 2-3 loose stool bowel movements each day, usually within 30 minutes of eating a meal. I have tried eliminating dairy from his diet but it didn't help. My husband's sister and two nieces have severe gluten intolerance but my husband and I don't. My older son, age 6, does not have loose stools. My main questions are: "Is having loose bowels 2 or 3 times a day really that big of a deal? Would going gluten-free be too drastic for such minor problems? Can we just lessen the amount of gluten or is it an ALL-OR-NOTHING decision? What tests should we ask our doctor to do?" Thank you for your help!
