  1. My son has not been diagnosed with celiac but he is eating gluten free and no more tummy pain. He likes Glutino pretzel sticks, Season's baked cheddar cheese curls, Blue diamond nut thins-almond, Pamala's mini choc chip cookies, Chex cereal-cinnamon, Brothers all natural disney freeze dried apples, , kroger sells their brand of pre-popped and bagged salted popcorn, my family loves it.
  2. I was at walmart shopping for tomato paste and many of the name brands had wheat in them. The walmart brand was the only one that had just tomato in it. Go figure.
  3. Thank you for your responses. I guess we are off to find an allergy doc. too.
  4. Hello. I am learning so much from everyone here. My 8 yr old son has been having some stomach problems. Presently he is under the care of a GI doc in ATL. They ran a celiac panel and said it was normal. I do not have the results to post at this time. The doc also said that the tests are only 95% accurate. So we are playing the waiting game now. Presently they are treating him with acid blockers and miralax. Tonight at dinner I noticed his cheeks, chin and ears were really red and he looked like he didn't feel well. He said he was o.k. Any idea what would cause this?
  5. Hyperhidrosis

    I have had hyperhidrosis since I was 14. I am now 38. Certain Dri is the only thing that works for me. It is OTC.
  6. My son is 8 and we have been going back and forth to his Dr. and a GI for about 3 mo. now to see what is causing his stomach pain. They have given us acid blockers, stomach coatings and miralax. The stomach pains started about the time he had ,what I think was, the flu. No vomiting, just stomach pain, headaches and he said his legs felt weird. He did have an ex-ray and blood work done. His Dr. wanted to have a celiac panel done, he said that it was normal. He was constipated though, apparently very constipated. We finally got in to see the GI and he also said that the blood tests looked normal but that the celiac tests were only 95% accurate. So he is still taking the acid blocker and the miralax. He is still having stomach pains on and off. The Dr. said we needed to wait about 3 more weeks to see if the acid blocker will help him. He also gave him a rx for a stomach relaxer, hyoscyamine, he has not taken this one yet. He said the next step would be an ultrasound. I do have a question, does anyone know if these meds cause pale stools? miralax or omeprazole. Thank you.
