Pediatrician 's  Response
You ought to give her both lactose-free diet along with gluten-free diet for Coeliac disease. You have to stop milk and milk-products in his diet and put him on some lactose-free formula milk.
For gluten-free diet, its best to search for gluten-free diet charts available on internet and go strictly by them. Thanks.
