Hi! Newbie here
Where to begin...labwork for 7 yo dd came back last Friday & tested positive for celiac. Hooray! She's had gut issues since birth so we were so thankful to have a reason. Unfortunately, we started pulling her off gluten a month ago (because we didn't know any better, and she was missing too much school) while doing a food diary with her to figure out why her previously dx'd IBS was so out of control (and why her "stomach flu" wasn't going away even when all she was eating was saltine crackers & chicken broth!).
So when the GI called & said she had celiac, she said we needed to put dd back on gluten & so we could have a positive biopsy. Ugh. Not thrilled, but it's my own damn fault. But she never said how much I had to give dd...I keep reading anywhere from 2-6 slice of bread a day. But I'm assuming that's for an adult. Dd is 50 lbs, and doesn't eat that much.
How much gluteny food do I need to give her? Her tTG IGA ab was 42 (normal <7) if that means anything. Dd is smart too, and has already accused me of giving her gluten! Which I'm totally guilty of doing, since there's no way she'll eat it now that she knows it's what made her sick. I even offered to let her eat cinnamon rolls every night & she told me "no way!"
TIA for any & all help
