While I was bf Ds I was on a glutenfree diet due to suspected coeliac disease. When we first realized it was wheat causing the toblem with him the paed we were seeing at the time advised that we go wheat free. After that he began having problems with oats so it was recommended we both go gluten free.
Since then my mum has been diagnosed with coeliac disease and the new paed we are seeing believes DS also probably has it as well but want to wait until he is older to diagnose him as he is thriving on the glutenfree diet (he was a ftt baby).
Both me and Ds are positive for the gene. Looking back prior to going gluten free I would have loose BM most days and was anaemic.
I have resently reintroduce gluten into my diet and am back to having loose BM multiple times a day and felling terrible.
So after all of that do you know if it likely to just be my body getting use to getting gluten again or more likely that I had coeliac disease the whole time and ill have to fell like this until I can get tested by eating gluten for long enough.

I will be stalking with interest as I am in a similar boat.
I do know that after being gluten free for a period of time, most coeliac's will react straight away to gluten in the system. This reaction and the severity of it, varies from person to person. But those who are just intolerant to it will also react... I guess there is no way to know for sure unless you have a biopsy. It is completely feasible that you could carry the gene, but just be intolerant...
My father and sister are both coeliac and my daughter is currently doing a gluten challenge in the lead up to having a biopsy. My initial serology bloods came back negative (still waiting to get the results for the gene test), but I feel soooo much better being gluten free! I have snuck the odd bit of bread in here and there and have noticed the change in my gut - usually about 4 hours after eating glutenous food.
Depending on what DD's results are, and my gene test, we will probably end up staying gluten free anyway. We both seem to be doing much better without the gluten in our diet, regardless of what the final verdict is. I would prefer to know one way or another though, just because it can be related to other auto immune diseases.
