My son is 11 months old and will be finally having his scope performed on the 30th. I read the thread regarding questions to ask and I wanted to follow up with one of my own.

 

My son is EXTREMELY sensitive to gluten, corn, and all grains. He also has DH which flares with even iodized salt. How long before the test should I be feeding him gluten (we have been grain free for 6 months) and will the test show if he has leaky gut? We have been unable to do the leaky gut blood/urine test because it consist of drinking a corn syrup which he cannot tolerate. We are worried that if we don't feed him gluten then the test will show a false negative. If we do feed him gluten, it is going to be awful but the trade off will be finally having the diagnosis so doctors stop ignoring his health problems.

 

Any thoughts on what to feed, for how long and how far in advance?

at least 6 weeks worth,  you need to find a doc that will diagnose on symptoms.

Does he have an official diagnosis of DH? If so, then that means he also has a diagnosis of celiac.

Is there something else that the doctor is looking for?
