  1. Hi Everyone Well we have the results and the biopsy came back negative for celiac disease. We are very happy over that. But still disappointed that we do not have an answer of why my little one is failure to thrive. We are now going through a 72 hour fecal test to see if there is malabsorption of fat. I just wanted to thank each of you for all your posts regarding this mattter. Im glad I found this forum with such wonderful people who take the time to respond to parents that are going through the initial testing of Celiac Disease. You are all terrrific. Thank you so much for your support. Celia
  2. Hi Everyone Just wanted to let you know my son did good with the biopsy on Wednesday. Now I have to wait until Monday for the test results. I just want an answer. Thank you to everyone that replied with the color of stools. You really are a great support group. If the biopsy comes back positive - I know who to turn to for support. Thanks again. Celia
  3. Hi Everyone I am new to this board. As of last week, our Gastrointerologist is ordering my 2 1/2 year old a biopsy of the small intestine in another 5 days. He has been Failure to Thrive ever since about 9 months. He started out in the 50% percentile and now is in the 5th. He only weighs 24lbs at 2 1/2 years old. His stools have always been a dark green olive color - hardly ever brown. They are semi loose - not watery diarhea - but mushy with no form - outlined with running stools. He has never had an appettite since about 6 months old - basically when I stopped breast feeding and offered him more solid type foods. I have been told and told over by family members that oh he is just a picky eater. But deep down inside I know something is not right. If it is Celiac Disease - at least that is the answer to all these months of why he has not gained a pound and why he will not eat. I have to chase him around, distracting him just to get food down him. Has anyone experienced this constant dark green stool color with their Celiac positive children. And if so - after starting a Glutin free Diet - are the stools more normal per se (brown with form). I feel like a terrible mother not knowing that the color and texture of his bowel movements was an indication of something being wrong. We have been to numerous specialists trying to figure out why he is not growing - but I never stressed enough about the bowel movements he was having. Any replies would greatly be appreciated. Thank you. Celia
