  1. Hello, I am new to this site and in desperate need of someone who understands this disease(because his pediatrician here in town DOES NOT). I am a 25 year old single mother to a newly diagnosed 3 1/2 year old boy. He had his biopsy confirmed about 4 months ago and has since been on a STRICT gluten free diet(he seems quite sensitive though). My problem is his behavior and "grumpyness". His BMs are better they were 12 times a DAY at his worst and are now 5-6. So I am assuming his diet is working alittle so far but his behavior is like none i've ever seen in a 4 year old. He has had some speech delays since he was young and is currently in preschool with speech therapy once a week and has come a long way since the start. He is just always grumpy and always saying "No...No...No I dont want to" or "stop it!" when I just ask him a simple question like, "Do you want the green marker or purple?" ... Simple things like that. I am just curious to see if other parents have seen this with their celiac child or if this could be something deeper. I have just been researching and googling my brains out and do not know if this is the disease or if maybe some behavioral issues are behind all of this. Help! I just want to take care of this and help my boy, because I know he does not want to be like this PS- He will have an autism/behavior evaulation in December because of his speech and behavior issues(but shows no signs of autism other then speech delay-no stimming, he has eye contact, lovey-when he wants to be, plays well with kids, and speaks 3-4 word sentences just doesn't understand how to keep or start a converstaion it is mostly "I dont want to go to the park" or "I want a juice box" **paranoid and never known of celiac before his diagnosis ... Thank you!
