  1. Have been on strict gluten free diet and pimples have disappeared as well as digestive troubles. Hard to get into dr. During office hours due to my work..again feeling like a terrible mother..but with your advice its convinced me that I'm not making symptoms up and am realizing how important it is for him to be gluten free. I've on been on youtube all night watching vikki peteren videod and realizing there's so much more research emerging and so many of his symptoms coincide with gluten intolerance, regardless of what testing has shown
  2. Thank you have in the past asked Dr. To test B12 but he didn't feel that it was necessary. He is really easy to deal with, so I'm sure he'll do any test I ask for..he tells moms to trust their instincts. Seems like in the past nobody felt there was a problem except me. When he went gluten free and his stools changed to normal color that got his attention. He also used the toilet after 1-2 days on his own. I got thinking that the pimples on face could be due to sunscreen, but can't explain the clear diarrhea. If not diet related then I would be concerned about a blockage or other injury to the colon..not complaining of pain so will wait a few days on better diet and see if returns to normal
  3. I have an 8 year old son who at 3 had a food sensitivity test showing reaction to gluten and egg. He tested negative for celiac. Was made to sound like he may outgrow it as long as removed for a good period of time, which we've done to our knowledge. Lately we allow him to have occasional treats, cupcake at school, pizza etc and didn't notice any changes. A couple weeks ago he had quite a bit of gluten and was ill on vacation with headache, gas, diarrhea and vomited once. I also noticed lots of pimply bumps on sides of face and chin. Tonight we were out and he said he thought he peed his pants but wasn't sure. Then he said he doesn't think he's feeling better yet from when he was sick on holidays. We went to a washroom and he let out small amount of clear mucousy liquid, which is what leaked into his pants..not pee. Would these things indicate a reaction to gluten or egg or does it sound like more of a virus. I should mention that the reason I got him tested in the first place was that he always seemed very tired, cranky, would not toilet train, and had black tarry stools, plus some skin discoloration (white patch on his hip). I feel awful allowing gluten into his diet now that this is happening, but these don't sound like any symptoms I've come across so any input is much appreciated. Cheers
