I always wondered if this was true. Always hearing stories of my parents telling other friends and family members how bad I had colic as a baby. A few of the stories were as bad as throwing me out the window… as you can see that never happened. Those who have a colic child know the screams and cries just too well and sometimes these children like myself can have it for years as a child. If you knew you could stop your child from hurting wouldn’t you get a blood test done. A simple question to your family doctor by asking to test your child for celiac or (gluten intolerant) can save both you and your child a lot of heartaches for both present and future.
Take a look at Jacquelyn Askew’s hypothesis. If individuals diagnosed with colic as infants have a high diagnoses rate for celiac disease, then doctors should recognize colic as a precursor to celiac disease and thus test for celiac disease in these infants.
