Give it some time. You've just started.

 

I would recommend, however, to drop any processed foods for a while and stick to a whole foods, as they can be hard on a healing gut.

Soy could definitely be a problem. It is for many of us. Shadow is right - skip the processed foods for a while and eat just whole foods - meat, veggies, fruit, and maybe some nuts. A good diet plan would be something like this:

 

Breakfast - eggs with melted cheese, a slice of ham, and if you need some carbs, plain white rice. (I like to melt the cheese into the rice, then shred the ham into it. I cook the eggs over easy and drop them on top and mix them in so the whole thing is covered with egg yolk. Yummy!) 

 

Mid-morning snack - an avocado or piece of fruit.

 

Lunch - a salad with shredded meat and egg. You can top it with the mayo mixed with a bit of garlic and black pepper, or better yet, some rice vinnegar and olive oil.

 

Afternoon snack - a handful of nuts.

 

Dinner - Some roasted chicken with sweet potato and broccoli.

 

Evening snack - a piece of fruit or another handful of nuts.

 

I'm a lousy and lazy cook so I tend to make a lot of whatever I'm cooking so there'll be plenty of leftovers. I ziplock them into individual servings and pop them in the micro when it's mealtime.

I am back on gluten now for my upcoming endoscopy but soy will make me sick and give me a headache. Milk and ice cream would bother me but not cheese or eggs. Sugary things bothered me too...I was reading that people with gluten problems can have soy, dairy and fructose problems also.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
