kkcg2736 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseWhy Is She Still Getting Tummy Aches?My daughter, nearly 7 y.o. has been diagnosed Celiacs. She is gluten free for 6 months now. She's still complaining, probably every other day, that her tummy hurts! Her bloodwork came back perfect last time and there were no Celiac markers. How long does it really take to get out of her system? Unless she's getting containinated at school, I have no idea why this is still happening? Any thoughts?

kkcg2736 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseSpittingOdd things are happening with my daughter...She is nearly 7, 2nd grade. Dx with Celiacs in May 12. She aquired a cold/sinus problems about a month ago. It took a good 3 weeks to clear up but ever since it's cleared up she's been spitting. She says it's phlem but it's not. I catch her all the time with mouthfuls of spit she refuses to swallow. Her teacher told me today that she's not herself, as I feel. Her appitite is barley exsistant. She won't eat much. I've mad e a Dr. appt for her this afternoon so I'll know if she's lost weight. She's pale, tired easily..almost like she was before being gluten-free.
Anyone have advise?

kkcg2736 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseBoth Kids With CeliacsI have 2 children and very new to this. My daughter was diagnosed with Celiacs after a very long bout with fatigue, stomach aches, urgency to go to the bathroom, and anemia. As she tested positive (blood and endo). My son had the bloodwork done and he had very high levels, so it's assumed he has it as well. He was experiencing differnt symptoms of headaches, joint/muscle pain, constipation and stomaches. They are 6 and 7.
My son is still complining of headaches and muscle pain..and both have belly discomfort a few times a week. I did get a new toaster, very carefully about cross contamination but have not replaced pots/pans/plastic kitchen wear. Do you think I have hidden gluten in my kitchen?
Seems ice cream is bothing my son as well, but the labels do not contain gluten ingrediants, can I trust foods/labels that are not gluten-free certified? Can Lactose cause stomach aches?
All input in welcome and appreciated. Thank you
