My 5 year old who was diagnosed with Celiac and has been gluten free for almost a year is still underweight and not growing. My head is spinning from all the research I've done so far and I don't know where to start with the healing process. It's very apparent that just going gluten free is not enough. I would love some helpful links about healing a leaky gut in young children.

have you also eliminated all processed foods and sugars (even limiting fruits) and been eating a traditional foods, low GI diet?  


Lots of bone broth, grass fed organic butter, eggs, and meat.  cultured foods.  


supplements i would be giving daily mixed in applesauce would be slippery elm, magnesium, colostrum, and l-glutamine.  also, probiotics and enzymes daily.  i believe others recommend FCLO as well.

Please look into the GAPS diet or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Both are supposed to heal the gut, but they are very strict diets. I hope something works for your little one!
