I've been lurking over here for the past few weeks as we've tried to figure out what is "wrong" with our 2-year old DS. He's been getting frighteningly skinny, extremely picky when it comes to eating, and very lethargic over the past 2 weeks. Many people told us that's just what 2-year olds do (minus the lethargy), but when he started being sleepy all the time, I really started to get nervous. They ran some blood tests a week ago and the results finally came back showing that he tested positive for Celiac Disease.
He has to have an endoscopy on Tuesday to confirm the bloodwork, and we plan to start our gluten-free lives on Wednesday. I can't wait! I just want him to be "himself" again.
I guess I'm just writing to introduce myself and to see if any of you moms are raising kids with Celiac Disease and if you have any tips, advice, website or book reccomendations-- if you do, please let me know! I'd really appreciate it. Also, if any of you are questioning your own child's weight loss, behavior changes, etc and you think it might be Celiac, I'm happy to answer any questions.
Good luck to all of us. And, I'm so happy to have found this board.
