  1. Help! My 4 1/2 yr old son WITH DOWN SYNDROME has somewhat been diagnosed with Celiac Disease...I think. He's been having a lot of sinus infections this past year and his Dr did a recent allergy test. I've just recieved a call from the Dr's office saying he's mildly allergic to wheat and corn and they have mailed me a list of what is acceptable and what is not. The diet is for people with celiac disease. I will not be able to confirm this with the dr's office until Monday so that's why I'm unsure about this. I am aware that Celiac disease is pretty common in people with Down Syndrome. My question is this....where do I begin? I'm overwhelmed! Everything in my house countains gluten I think! I also have a 13 yr old and a 2 yr old so I'm not going to be able to let them eat what Jacob likes and can't have in front of him. That would be cruel!!! Any suggestions from the pros??? Where do you get the special food products? Any helpful advice would be soooo appreciated. Thanks in advance, Tracey
