I was diagnosed with coeliacs about 5 years ago and have never felt better since being on a gf diet. I had my first child 15 months ago and am not sure how to test if my son has coeliacs too... i have kept him on a gf diet since he started solids as im not sure where to start. I have tried him on wheatbix for breaky every 2nd morning for about 2 weeks and his poo and personality changed. i was scared this was coeliacs reaction so i took him straight back off it. but im not sure if it was just a change to his system getting use to gluten as he has never had it before.

can anyone give me some advice on how to introduce gluten to see if he is coeliac as well????

do i just feed it to him and see waht happens or do i introduce it slowly or do i wait til he's older....

HELP PLEASE!!

Hi Amanda,

I don't know for sure, but my opinion is to give him the gluten so that you can find out if he also has Celiac. The earlier the diagnosis the better! Again, just my opinion...
