I have been considering putting ds (who is 6) on a gluten free diet. He has several of the usual markers/symptoms for why one might eliminate gluten. So, I'm trying to move forward with it, researching and in general trying to wrap my head around it. It will require a major overhaul of his diet, but if we have good results it is totally worth it.
I know that when milk is a diet-suspect, it usually encouraged to eliminate for at least two weeks, so that all the proteins are out of the blood stream, try to eat some again, and see what happens. *Is there a similar recommendation for gluten?* Should I try it for two weeks, and see how it goes, or does one need to entirely avoid for more time...months?...before you can really see any difference? I guess I'd like to know a preliminary timeline before going in. Ds's main complaint is tummy aches. Will two weeks be enough time? Would it make a difference sooner. I can't seem to find any information about this specifically in my casual research.
Thanks! Any info would be helpful!
