Thank you. :)  He didn't/doesn't have any gut issues or show symptoms.  He was nursed until 18 months, didn't start solids until 7? months - he was reaching for my food, sitting up, etc., and I didn't feed him solids daily unless he was showing interest.  I don't think he started eating daily until 12 months.

 

I do want to eliminate gluten, but he;s so picky already and rotates between a handful of foods.

:o)  He sounds a lot like my son. I breastfed until 13 months, and he was a picky carb-lover after that. He also does not have any gut issues that I know of.

 

 I'm fairly new to the whole gluten-free lifestyle. These are a few interesting points I recently learned:

"In children and young adults, gluten ataxia can also cause developmental delay, diminished muscle tone, learning disorders and ADHD."

 

"Only a proportion of patients presenting with neurological dysfunction association with gluten sensitivity will also have GI symptoms.”

The bottom line is that gluten sensitivity can be primarily — and at times exclusively — a neurologic disease."

My oldest DD has been off gluten for a little over two years now, and she is like a different person. I wouldn't have believed how much difference it could make if I hadn't seen it. She never had any GI issues that I was aware of, either, but she was diagnosed by our ND as gluten and dairy allergic, and the diet has changed her life. joy.gif

My son as well, weaned at 3 1/2, no antibiotics or symptoms as a baby, seems to have good gut health  if you use the bristol scale ( a scale that tells you if your elimiations   show a healthy or unhealthy gut wall)....

but...

 

his symptoms of adhd (  poor impulse control, hyperactivity, oppositional behavior, an other symptoms-picky eating, sugar addiction, and more)  all go away without gluten. So there is something in his digestion going on.... There are other factors like antibiotics in our food supply...leaky gut resulting from an over  growth of yeast...

 

Anyway, ironically the picky eating is drastically improved with gluten removal-for us anyway...
