I posted a few weeks ago about my daughter, shes 9 and is suffering with stomach problems.
I was diagnosed coeliac at 30, my brother at 21.
Dr believes that she has coeliac disease but wants to try and sort out the gastric problems first to see if its ibs or similar before putting her through the biopsy, which is done same way for kids as adults apparently, I thought it'd be done under a general anaesthetic.
Anyway, we've made some slight improvements with the laxido powders 4 times a day, and have gone back to see Dr as requested.
He has now reduced the laxido to 2 a day and added in fybogel twice a day and buscopan 3 times a day for the really bad days.
He has also advised I put her on a non reactive diet, like bland things such as rice and chicken.
He said that he wants a strong reaction when we do the gluten challenge, but hoping the bland foods will help her symptoms while doing the powders and fybogel, in the hope that she may poop properly in the meantime..
I'm so confused.. so should I make her gluten free until she does the gluten challenge.. my instincts tell me to, hate seeing her in pain and suffering, hate seeing her refusing food she loves cause shes starting to see her own triggers for her tummy problems..
Any advice welcome
