    If you think that he might have coeliac disease from any symptoms it's worth having a blood test done. Use Emla cream and it's not too bad. That is the first step in a diagnosis and while they are doing the serology for CD you could get them to test a whole heap of other things that might be beneficial. All my daughter had was a stomach ache which we thought was reflux. She had no other symptoms of Coeliac disease but turns out she had it and has quite a lot of damage from it.

    there's another thread (http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...oeliac-Disease) @Rodeobull had her daughter test positive for coeliac without any super obvious symptoms

    She said her daughter had stomach pains. My Ds doesn't complain at all about tummy pains. But I will still ask the doctor.

    Having just been diagnosed with coeliac disease myself and doing some research it is not recommended to eat gluten free unless there is a medically necessary need to. Gluten free tends to be higher in sugar and lower in fibre and other nutrients (iron etc) from what I've read.

    As for the testing, do not alter the diet yet if you are planning on having him tested. To have the blood serology test you have to be eating a high gluten diet (minimum of 4 slices of bread per day for a period before the test) to get accurate results.

    Thanks !!
    I generally just buy rice milk, sometimes i buy almond as well.

    I don't use bread, i substitute a sandwhich with corn thins, rice cakes, sushi, etc.

    I don't really buy packet snacks as I want to avoid as much artificial stuff as possible. However i know Kettle chilli and plain chips and both gluten and dairy free. Those multipack vege chips you can buy are too. Rice crackers so long as they don't have dairy are good. Plain corn chips as well.

    If you like pasta, i've found the barilla gf version to be as close to normal wheat pasta.

    Looking for allergens on the back of packets is usually a quick way to determine if there is any gluten and/or dairy.
