For those curious about Celiac Disease...

Thanks Laurel! - And also to anyone else who has asked about celiac disease...

i am in the process of verifying that they did test for celiac disease, but we're almost positive that they did. When he had his sigmoidoscopy they did a biopsy and did testing and the pedi said that is the ultimate celiac test. I know they tested for other things as well, it wasn't exactly easy to watch my baby go through that testing and i didn't ask all the questions that i'm sure i should/could have about all the details of what went on. At the time i just wanted to see my baby get through the day and get meds to help him... and we were all quite sleep deprived! So i will verify with the specialists themselves when we go next time but so far the doctors all believe he has been tested by the GI specialist.

Holy cow! I didn't know they did a sigmoidoscopy on him....yikes, that is scary! Yeah, they would have found something there more readily than with a blood test for Celiac. We are praying!
