Nausea and stomach pain
My 15 year old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac approximately 18 months ago after a scope and biopsy and being treated for reflux for the previous 2 years. She immediately went on a gluten-free diet. All went well for 6 months then she experienced problems with diarrehia and was diagnosed as lactose intolerant. For the past 12 months she was fine and taking lactaid pills. 5 weeks ago she began having stomach pains and nausea with occasional diarrehia.

Blood and stool tests have ruled out gluten issues, and parasites. Doctors are saying it is reflux and she has been back on medicine to treat that but no improvement in the past 3 weeks. She is an active teenager and beginning a fall sports program (swimming) and is struggling with the symtoms. Any suggestions as to what to try next?

Thanks!

If she's celiac, then you may want to consider that the problem with diary isn't the lactose (the sugar), it could be casein - the major protein. Many celiacs cross-react and they have to cut out all dairy, period.
