mwapril added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomAnyone From Bc? Delta Area? (canada)My son just recently had a ttg done, and his levels were apparently significantly elevated. We are awaiting his appointment at Children's on Aug 10. Quite a while away.... anyways I was just wondering if there are any gluten free products at a specialty store somewhere close to where I live. I do know that Save-on-foods and safeway carry some gluten free products and I do know that there is a wide variety of sites online which carry these products as well. I really would rather find a store close by in the event that Eric(6) test results should return positive. Any suggestions would be much appreciated thankyou

mwapril added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithMy Sons Ttg High And Has To Remain On Gluten Till TestHello
My son just recently had a ttg done last week. My doctor said that is was significantly elevated and that we have to undergo an endoscopic biopsy of the small bowel. I was told that he had to remain on a gluten diet until test day ( Aug 10) otherwise the test is of no value. How can I give him a regular diet when I know that gluten is like a poisen to him?? He is only 6 years old and seems to have all the classic symptoms, his appetite is nonexistant and complains of feeling like he is going to be sick, his belly is bloated beyond belief. It just seems so unfair that the hospital cannot get him in sooner. To me it is a long wait. Any tips or ideas of what I can do would be helpful.
