What are the signs of gluten allergy?

My 21 month old is ALWAYS cranky and crying. He eats a limited amount of foods (not for lack of effort on my part), all of it contains gluten. His dad has food allergies. Could he be allergic and causing him stomache pain? Also, he get very painful gas.

  • Could be, but gluten allergies can cause a variety of symptoms-The doc would know best. But make everything gluten free for a week or 2 and see how he does. You can get nearly anything gluten free at dietary stores like natural grocers, sprouts, or whole foods.
