I suspect my son may have Celiac disease. BUT from what I have read, a MAJOR symptom is failure to thrive. My son is average height/weight. He gets rashes around his mouth after eating things like shredded wheat (the frosted mini ones), he is on Lactaid milk because he had constant diarrhea after he started eating regular foods, he avoids most foods, and will not even touch it or gags, he sometimes passes stool that looks like clear jelly (a symptom of intestinal distress), sometimes complains that his stomach hurts.
What would you do?
ETA: my son is almost 3 years old and we've been struggling with this same circle of symptoms for almost 2 years, continually being shrugged off by our pediatrician.
