  1. Why Mcdonalds Sucks

    It was the super size, Ronni's little but she can eat the whole order. She wasn't only getting the french fries on the week-ends but after school on occassion. I pray there hasn't been more damage and will be taking her to get checked next month. I can't explain the way I feel, Im just angry that this happened. I thought for the last two years she was gluten free and then to find out she isn't, how dare they risk her health.
  2. Why Mcdonalds Sucks

    Since being diagnosed she hasn't had another biopsy, her blood work was done and her doctor said she needed more calcium and a multi vitamin but didn't thin another biopsy was necessary. Im at work right now and dont have her results with me. I will post them when I get home. I was told to continue on the diet. Six months into the diet Ronni gained over twenty pounds. Now that I think of it she hasn't gained anymore maybe 2 or 3 pounds in a year 1/2. She weighs between 44-45 lbs. Ronni will be eight in June.
  3. Why Mcdonalds Sucks

    Hi , I haven't been on this site for at least a year and a half, but when my daughter was diagnosed with celiac two years ago this site saved me. I still continue to do a lot of research and learn something new everyday. Ronni's villi was not just damaged but totally flat (full blown celiac disease) I was told by her doctor it would take 5 years on a gluten free diet to repair most of the damage gluten has done to her villi. I have done everything in my power to give her the proper diet and tonight I'am so angry and feel so powerless all this because of Mc Donald french fries. Ronni has McDonald french fries at least once a week maybe more. When we go shopping on saturdays for fruits and gluten-free foods, her treat is an order of fries and a sprite Gluten almost killed my daughter all I ask from any company is to be honest and truthful, you can add all the Gluten you want but when I ask tell me the truth. Mc Donalds let me give my child poison. Sorry for rambling on i was very upset by the news and feel so guilty for giving her those stupid french fries. Thanks to who ever is reading, I needed to get that out Ronnismom

  6. My Daughter Has Cd

    Hi I hope this helps a little, my daughter who will be 6 years old in June was diagnosed with Celiac about 2 months ago. Ronni's villi is totally flat. I have had her on the gluten-free diet since her diagnosis she really doesn't care for the gluten-free foods and I too was concerned because she hasn't been eating much but to my surprise I weighed her two weeks ago and she gained 3lbs, so what she is eating is staying with her. Just stick with the diet I have seen such a change in my daughter she now weighs 38lbs and looks so healty no more black circles around her eyes. The tears I cry now are tears of JOY!!!!!!!!!

  8. Daughter Won't Eat

    Hi My daughter is 5 years old we found out she had celiac disease about 2 months ago. Ronni use to have a good appetite she craved bread all the time. Since being on the gluten-free diet I have noticed she wasn't eating much her lunch would come back from school the same way I packed it. Needless to say I was very upset, well I weighed her last night and she has gained 3lbs dont ask me from what but shes getting what she needs from something. So I understand your concern the important thing is that what they are eating that is gluten-free is staying with them. I hope in time with your daughter and my own we can find things that they enjoy. Good luck Hillary
  9. Plz Help Im Very Confused

    Hi Im sorry your feeling so bad. My daughter is 5 and she had all the symptoms you have. If you where gluten free for the blood test it will come out negative you need to be on gluten when you do the blood test. Ronni was on gluten when she had her blood work done it came back positive and so did her biopsy. I hope you start feeling better. Talk with your mom there are other test you can do to find out for sure. Hillary
  10. The New Mainstream Food List

    Hi I called the manufacture and got the website. Im a little concerned the person I spoke with told me that some of the products are gluten free but they do process them on they same line as products that contain gluten so if you are real sensitive to gluten you may want to avoid their product. What concerns me is even if you dont have the symptoms from the small traces of gluten it is still doing you damage.
  11. I printed out the new mainstream food list it doesn't have ruffles brand or dorritos listed anymore does that mean they contain gluten? Thanks Hillary

  14. Testing Please Advise

    Hi I have a five year old she weighs 35 lbs. I had the same problem no one would believe me when I said she just wasn't right. I continued to take her to the doctors after many visits to the doctors they did a blood test for her it came back positive for celiac. I wish you all the best it took me a year to finally get her diagnosed (two blood test, both positive and a biopsy later) they discovered her Villi was completely flat. Ronnis's symptoms:no weight gain, white floaty stool, diarehea,vomiting, fevers, muscle and joint pain and black rings under her eyes. I hope this information helps ask your doctor for a blood test. Hillary
