  1. Chrisv - did you get your biopsy results back? i have been gluten free as well since june and just scheduled a biopsy. The GI told me I only need one week of gluten in my diet to show a positive biopsy if I have celiac...interested to see what you found.
  2. Thanks for the response. I do feel like I am pushing it. My procedure is 19 days out so I sat down and gladly had a regular beer tonight! My son is biopsy positive, I am DNA positive and with the gluten free diet my reflux has really improved, energy has gotten better along with a list of other things. I was worried that a week was not enough time.
  3. I have been following a gluten free diet since June 2010 (my son is biopsy confirmed) and will be getting a scope myself at the end of the month. Worried I scheduled it to soon...how long is it recommended that you be ingesting gluten before a scope? My doctor said 7 days I thought it was more like 21 days.
  4. Thank you. My son is 6 years old and newly dx but having immunity issues. He does not eat well and this product would be condensed f/v - they claim that they are test by NSA and are below 20ppm but I just am unsure.
  5. Never too late. Takes three elements - genetics, gluten and a trigger. The trigger can happen at anytime - stress, illness etc.
  6. Has anyone taken Juice Plus products lately? Gummies or the adult supplements. They state they are gluten free and test by the NSA to be 20 ppm or less but contain Oat Bran (only the outer shell thus gluten free) - Really would like to place my child on this supplement but affarid of the oat bran.
  7. I also agree with you. I am a mother of a 6 year old with a positive biospy in November 2009. We have struggled to obtain a dx for years and now that we have one it has been such a relief. My child had one acute illness after another, especially after he started kindergarden this last year. My pediatrician wanted to do immunity testing on him but I refused wanting to wait till we had the results of our biospy. He stated that there is no clinical data to support the fact that celiacs have a higher incidence of acute illness. I did find some studies online performed in germany. I am also a dieititian and I just could not believe that if a kid is malabsorbing that it would not effect his immune system. Needless to say since we have changed his diet to gluten free I have only stayed home from work once - that has only been since mid novemember but prior to novemember I was home every week with him. He also had bone aches, restless sleeping, lack of energy and very pale all the time. Hope that helps. Physicians are starting to think out of the box when it comes to celiac but they still have a long ways to go.
