How to treat celiac disease in an infant?

Hi my 14 week old doctor has been in and out of hospital in the last 3 weeks, she is currently being tested for celiac disease, her poop has been runny, like water, no form to it at all. Today when I changed her nappy there was black flakey bits in her poo, I could feel it through the wipe when cleaning her. I have a follow up appointment in an out patients clinic tomorrow, should I wait until then, or is this something I need to worry about before then. She is super unsettled too!

Hi
If cause of her disease is found to be celiac disease, she has to eat diet free from gluten( wheat, Rye, and Barley) ,but one question ,what is age of your child ( you have not mentioned age of your baby, Is it 14 weeks, then there is no question of celiac disease).

Celiac disease patients live a normal life apart from dietary restrictions.

Hope I answered your query ,
thanks
