I joined this group because I suspect my youngest son has celiacs or a gluten intolerance. He has severe reflux that causes him breathing problems and is medicated for that. He has a rash that appears on his face that I was told was eczema. I've started noticing lately that it shows up when he's had a lot of dairy or bread/pasta. He also has very dark, gritty stools. Anyway, I was wanting to talk to other patents of children who had this to see if I was on to something and should bring it up to his dr. If y'all wouldn't mind Shari g your experience and thoughts I would sure appreciate it. Thanks.

My kids are older and never showed any signs, but a lot of your son's symptoms sound like me.  I am going to and allergist next week to make sure, but I've been gluten free for a few weeks and definately seem to feel better!   Try an allergist or a nutrionist....Good luck!

Its a blood test and based and those results If that's positive they follow it with an endoscopy. Relatively simple.

My 8 mo old son just got diagnosed.  also has a red forhead and eczema on his cheeks.  My dh wants to get a 2nd opinion before we have a biopsy done.
