fylgja added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseFrustratedI am celiac. I tested positive multiple times on my blood tests and had one biopsy. I always got migraines, and skin problems, along with my stomach symptoms. My son started having migraines and vomiting last summer, but has had chronic constipation since he was a baby (and he's always been small for his age). He also suffers from gastritis and reflux, like me. He was blood tested positive, but negative biopsy. I took him off gluten anyway and all his symptoms disappear. The problem is getting other people to believe he can't eat gluten. They act like it's a phase I'm going through because I used to be a vegetarian. Once I couldn't eat gluten I started eating meat. I also have PCOS so I can't eat many carbs. I just want people to take us seriously! I even have cousins and their kids that were diagnosed with celiac. My sister can't eat gluten or she gets all over body pains. So I know we can't eat it, but it's not a big deal. There are so many foods without gluten, why does my mother have to give him fudge brownie icecream? Sorry for the vent, but I know you all are the only ones that understand.
