Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern


A common presentation of symptoms is anemia, weight loss and chronic diarrhea. There can also be related skin rash.

Testing for antigliadin , anti endomysial and antitransglutaminase antibodies can be advised. Upper GI endoscopy would be required to confirm celiac / gluten intolerance and also rule out small bowel lymphoma.

Removing gluten alone by stopping wheat rye and oats is not an accurate way. Testing should be done in the above order explained.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks

My son is 14 and has chronic diarrhea . I know is lactose intolerant but the diarrhea is pretty much every day. He also has bouts of nausea . About once a month he will wake me out of a dead sleep at night and say he feels like he is going to throw up. I m so frustrated and don t know what to do. I always think its the flu , but I know that can t be every month. Please help!

My daughter would turn three in november. Her problem is that she has been having chronic diarrhea for the last two months. She has under eye circles. She is getting thinner but her weight is normal-16 kgs. She eats paper, tissue paper, newspaper, infact any paper she gets hold of, once or twice I have seen her eating crayon as well. She drinks milk a lot and eats choosily. She doesn t want to leave the feeder bottle and switch to glass. What should I do?
