I have been to this site before and found a lot of great information. Here is the short version of our story. My 8 year old son Parker has had stomach issues for as long as I can remember. I actually call him stinky because he has so much gas, of course as an 8 year old boy he is proud of it. He has some food allergies and his stomach is always on the fence. Sometimes he cannot finish a meal because it hurts so much. But other times he feels great and he eats more than my husband. When he was 5 his pediatrician put him on a gluten free diet trial for a month, but we were in the middle of moving and it seemed impossible. We are a military family and we have moved 6 times in 10 years so we hardly ever get to see the same doctor more than once. Finally last October we saw a doctor that wanted to run some blood tests on Parker and at the end of February he received the results. He sent me an email saying that his anti-gliaden antibodies were elevated and he is sending us to a GI doc for further evaluation. I am really not sure what to think of all of this. My son is a very athletic, energetic boy. His weight and height is around 50 to 75 percentile for his age. He has gas, stomach bloating, intermittent stomach pain. he gets a red raised rash on his cheeks when he eats, and some foods make him act a little out of control. Since I have to wait until the end of April to see the other doctor I am wondering if there is anything else that can elevate his antibodies.
