      Thank you for the kind words of encouragement. I think I'm going to start with the basics and then add things in slowly. How long would you say to cut out processed foods before I start adding back in a testing? When I feel better?

      Year And A Half And Still Not Better.
      I was diagnosed with Celiac in November 2007 (the day before Thanksgiving). I felt so much better for about four months and then slowly but surely ALL my symptoms came back (bloating, stomach pain, tired, headaches, joint pain). The doctor that found the Celiac basically told me to go online and then in the next breath told me there are a bunch of "wackos" online. My insurance would never pay for a nutritionist.

      I'm seeing a new doctor now who is in the middle of performing all the same test I had in 2007. I'm very frustrated as the doctor is telling me one thing while the books and internet are telling me another.

      I'm hearing some people say that they cut out all foods except veggies, fruit, and meat for awhile. Do all people need to do that? Any advice as I'm starting back at square one? I feel like I've been doing without for a year and a half for nothing.

      I'm willing to try anything as I'm so bloated I look 5 months pregnant and it's painful!

      Your child may qualify for a 504 plan in your district. Section 504 "which specifies that no one with a disability can be excluded from participating in federally funded programs or activities, including elementary, secondary or postsecondary schooling. "Disability" in this context refers to a "physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities." This can include physical impairments; illnesses or injuries; communicable diseases; chronic conditions like asthma, allergies and diabetes; and learning problems."

      I would request a meeting with your school. This plan will require them to help your child at school. This plan may include training kitchen staff or contacting you if the menu changes.
