Shaylamarie replied to torontomom's topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac Diseasemy daughter was found to be gluten intolerant by an allergist 6 years ago. Her main doctor still doesnt believe she is allergic to gluten. I dont care what she thinks. I still take her there for her yearly check ups etc. I just have taken her off gluten. Her symptoms were that she could barely speak because of phlegm in the throat. she was constantly clearing her throat to the point that it would give us all headaches and she would lose her voice. Her doctor said it was a "tick" (nervous habit) and that we should ignore it. After 1 week of being off gluten, the throat clearing stopped. Still to this day the doctor doesnt believe me. If my daughter sneaks gluten at school, her nose will bleed the next day, and the throat clearing will start. Just do what you think is best. Doctors dont know everything.
