My daughter & I are in the process of some sort of diagnosis. She had mouth eczema & we couldn't figure it out. I researched that gluten was a common culprit. While researching her medical issues, I realized I had many adult symptoms. We quit gluten together & both started healing. Her mouth eczema was healed in a week, & my rash is still healing.

She's had a flare up tat has coincided with starting kindergarten. I pack her lunches & her teacher is well aware of her condition. As far as I know, she's still gluten-free. I'm wondering f it's stress related? She as fun in kindergarten, but it can be stressful.

Any advice? Help? I'm taking her to the dr tomorrow, I'm looking for a referral to a specialist at children's.

I think it could be stress related as well as the fact that you are both very early in the healing process. It can take months for the immune response to gluten to settle down, and even longer for the healing to occur. Until then, it's not unusual to experience set-backs for no real reason.

 

To be sure though, discuss hand washing policies before every snack and meal, and make sure play-dough is very contained and that your daughter washes immediately after being near it.

 

 

As for the specialist, if she is to be tested for celiac disease, she must be eating gluten in the weeks prior to testing or results may not be accurate. If her blood is tested for celiac disease, the best tests are:

DGP IgA and IgG

tTG IgA and IgG

EMA IgA

total serum IgA

 

The first test is very good at picking up celiac disease in kids but it is also the fastest to return to normal on a gluten-free diet. The more tests run the better.

 

This site discusses the tests from page 10 on wards: http://www.worldgast..._long_FINAL.pdf

 

Good luck!
