I am suspecting that my child (1 year) has a celiac disease, I am far from the hospital can I get virtual diagnosis cause it has been 6 months?
Needs an eval: I find it unlikely the kid would have CD at 1 yr but it can happen. As a lifelong label with important implications (risks of other diseases) it requires a thorough basic evaluation.

A biopsy to confirm is standard ...Read more

This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients. Classically people have loose stool, bloating, and abdominal discomfort but more often are just found when screened for other reasons (like symptoms of a nutritional deficiency like iron or bone loss). ...Read more
Pretty common: Gluten-sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease) is much less common than gluten intolerance. Like lactose intolerance, caffeine intolerance, sorbitol intolerance (with regard to needing to restrict each respective substance), people who are gluten intolerant do better to avoid gluten-containing foods.
