MLO added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseCeliac Disease/brusing EasyHi,
Probably a dumb question, but my daughter that was diagnosied via biopsy in March with Celiac has a problem with brusing easily on her legs and sometimes has problems with her legs inching? Has anyone else had this problem with their kids? Also she has gained a few pounds since her Gluten free diet but is also still suffering from some anxious/stress disorders that I relate to a long process on being diagnosed. How long could it be before she is comfortable about staying "overnight" at "good" friends house? She is 10 years old and refuses to stay any where but our house. The friends that I am talking about are friends that she has known since she was 3 years olds..
Just concerned and want advise from parents..

MLO added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseMy Daughter Confirmed - Parents NegativeHello-
Just a quick question. My daughter was recently confirmed by biopsy that she did in fact have Celiac Disease. Of course we were scard but yet glad that the diagnosis of why she was sick all the time had be confirmed.
My question is that both my husband and my blood work came back negative. I know that this can happen but I was assuming that one of us would at least show something. Maybe give me a sense of peice of how she inherited it.
I have read messages with parents saying "dad" has it "mom" has it and so does the child, but I am curious of parents out there that show "NO" signs according to their blood work but their child has it.
I guess I just feel so helpless as we have so many kids on both sides of the family and now would like to at least give my relatives some news on if or who should be tested.

MLO added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsEndoscopy ResultsHi,
My question to everyone is that my 9 year old daughter tested postive on 2 of 3 antibodies on her Celiac Panal. We had a GI doctor peform her endoscopy last week. He said that she did have enflamed and enlarged intestines but NOT to change her diet until the biopsy comes back. My question is that the GI doctor said that visually he could see she had Gastro Duodenitis. In laymens terms that means ulcers or pre-ulcers in the upper intestine/lower stomach. Has anyone else had this problem before they were diagnosied with Celiac. I guess as a mom I just worry about multiple ulcers. We were given medication to begin immediately and just like everyone else the multiple days of waiting for her results.
