Any children for whom a gluten intolerance has caused no growth issues?
My LO is gigantic in weight and height for his age, and I am wondering if a gluten intolerance is unlikely given his massive size and steady growth. Thanks!
His growth has been completely normal. He is large for his age (16 mos - he's as big as some 24-mo-olds in his daycare), but not overweight.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
My dd is gluten intolerant and may or may not have celiac. She was in the far high end of normal growth patterns until a year old when she started showing malabsorption difficulties and got really active all at once. Now she's 18 months and climbing back up the charts (after seriously plummeting to the bottom).
We're remote ECing, unschooling, free ranging goat dairy farmers.
