    This actually has nothing to do with Connor (my T1 kid). I am concerned about my daughter, Sarah, and trying not to read too much into symptoms we've seen the past week or so. I am really trying not to overreact.

    Sarah has always been my drama queen so it is hard to know how seriously to take her sometimes but I am getting concerned this week.

    For the past week or so she has had diarrhea that comes and goes. I thought it was a virus the first couple days but it won't go away. It seems to happen most often after she has eaten something high carb (bread, donut, pasta). She'll eat and 30-60 min. later she is in the bathroom and complains for a couple hours after that her stomach hurts. For most of the past week she has just felt blah.

    Looking back she has complained of 'just not feeling right' quite a few times over the past few months and complains about her stomach 'bothering' her fairly often. She has also complained of having loose stools from time to time recently. Being a teenager who just started her cycle a year ago I didn't really think too much of all this until the diarrhea started last week.

    Do you think I should be concerned about possible Celiac? Do these sound like Celiac symptoms?

    I think that those could be celiac symptoms...but they could be other things as well. Wouldn't hurt to make an appt to check it out.

    I would take her in for an appointment. We know that autoimmune issues run in families. In case you aren't already aware -- please keep her eating gluten, even though it may be the problem, until after testing. The presence of gluten is imperative for accurate testing. Sorry :( I'll pray it's just a funky bug, not celiac.
