      I also order gluten free foods when I'm out with my son. Especially since he doesn't eat that much yet anyways and it wouldn't be worth ordering a meal for him, so I just share with him. But I will later also still order gluten free just so I don't have to worry about anything gluteny touching his plate/food.

      Be Aware Of Popcorn!
      Yesterday we were making microwave popcorn and as Jonathan poured the finished popcorn in the bowl one upopped kernel fell down and right into Owen's sleeve. He right away started screaming and we took his sweater off to check but couldn't see anything at first. Went to the bathroom to run some cold water over it and within minutes he had a blister on his arm a little bigger than the kernel . It was such a freak accident, who would have thought of something like this happening.
      It was so swollen and bright red yesterday, then in the middle of the night the blister must have opened up. Today he still has a pretty good mark on his arm but at least it doesn't seem to bother him anymore. It's still pretty red and a little swollen but at least the size went down a good amount.
      So even if your child is wearing long sleeves make sure they are not close by when you pour popcorn in a bowl, I would have never thought that this could happen as we are always so carefull with hot things.
      Here are 2 pics of his arm]

      Asthma and hayfever do run in our family. I myself suffer from both and also food allergies. I printed out some articles and will take it to his ped at his check-up and will request that they check the slides that are left from his scope last year. If they can't do it they can send them somewhere else do get it done.

      This is interesting, makes me wonder if my son could have it. He also tested negative for celiac but has both genes. And he definitly tolerates foods better since taking Zyrtec every day. I guess I will have to discuss this with his doctor, although all allergy testing came back negative.

    7. Owen'sMom added a post in a topic How Long Does Dd Need To Be Glutened Before Blood Test?   

      I agree with the other posters. I would not put her back on gluten. We just went through this last year with my son. He was on gluten for a good 7 months and yet we got all negative results, even though he had many symptoms return after he was gluten free before. I wouldn't put him through this again, we did Enterolab testing and it came back positive for gluten, soy and casein. We also did the genetic testing and he has both celiac genes.
      He is now gluten free again for the past 4 months again and doing better then ever. He has gained a total of 2.5 lbs in that time and grew about 1.5 inches.

      I also suggest to go with enterolab for testing as you don't have to put her back on gluten again.

    8. Owen'sMom added a post in a topic My Five Year Old Celiac's Eczema   

      Those pics look exactly like the flare my son just had not to long ago. He did however get glutened and that was his reaction. We had to use prescription creams, aquaphor, cetaphil and bleach bath to finally get it under control. The redness is now completely gone but his skin is still bumpy and not smooth.

      Happy Valentine's Day
      Happy Valentine's Day everybody. I decided to make a chocolate cake from Bobs Red Mill, never tried it before as I usually make things from scratch. I made the cream cheese frosting from scratch though.
      As you can tell by the cake, some little boy made the choice as to what he wanted on it, lol.

      Here are some pics of it.

    11. Owen'sMom added a post in a topic New Update On Annika   

      My son reacts to different foods and all allergy testing came back negative. The best way to test is to do a food trial, leave the food away for a while and then introduce one thing at a time every 7 days. That way you can make sure what she is reacting to. We are gluten, soy and nut free but also have restricted his diet from corn, tangerines, blueberries and many other foods because of reactions. He would also break out in rashes/eczema when he couldn't tolerate it.
      So yes this absolutely possible for her to react to food even if the tests show up negative.

    12. Owen'sMom added a post in a topic 2 Yr 8 Month Old Blood Panel Results- Celiac?   

      With those blood results I would also skip the biopsy and start the diet right away. We went through all the testing and my son suffered so much and still had negative results for both bloodwork and biopsies. Yet his response to gluten free was so great that I really don't need prove via biopsy.
      I also agree with taking out soy and dairy for a while. My son is doing so much better now and he actually tolerates small amounts of cheese and yogurt now.

      What A Difference!
      Since October Owen has put on about 2lbs and grew 1.5 inches . He has more energy then ever and has no problems walking from and to Jonathan's school (before I always had to carry him most of the way). He sleeps well and through the night and also doesn't take 3-4 hour naps anymore, now they are more 1-2 hours long.
      You guys he looks awesome and he feels great as long as we watch his diet and he takes all his meds .

      Here is a collage of pictures, the top ones are from tonight and the bottom ones are from this summer when he was on a regular diet and had so many issues. Isn't it great how much he changed, no bloated belly anymore and no ribs sticking out . I'm just amazed at how much better he looks and feels now. Thanks to a gluten and soy free diet.

      I use the Shiff Children's chewable Vitamins for my son. I like the fact that you can give them one and don't have to cut them in half. Once they are 4 and older they can just eat 2.
      He really likes them and he doesn't have an issue with them. He is alsmost 3yrs now and we started those about 4-5 months ago.

      I had my son tested through Enterolab as well after his bloodwork and biopsies came back negative. Turns out that he has both celiac genes, that in combination with his great dietary response is enough proof to me.
