My 6 year old little girl was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. We had gone through years of eczema, skin rashes, her hair was thinning and frail, she was petite, and I wondered why...we went through allergy testing two years in a row, it never showed that she had any wheat allergy. And of course as hard as it is for doctors to diagnose, they continously thought she had constipation, as well they were diagnosing her this way without tests. As a mum, I knew when she was in pain all night and having to leave school it was time to get some answers. It took blood tests ordered by her second pediatrician to find out whithin a week. So anyone having that feeling that something else is wrong, follow thru!!!
