Celiac disease: Celiac disease is rare in infants. Gastrointestinal symptoms more often can be caused by food allergies, ie milk, soy, egg white, wheat. If baby is underweight with stomach symptoms then a sweat test for cystic fibrosis might be indicated. Understanding what the symptoms and the child growth and nutritional status can help understand the cause.
