If you have no health issues, there is no reason for a family member to assume gluten can harm your baby and If presented as you may kill your baby is being a bit harsh...imo.
Does this family member have Celiac or NCGS? Do you have any health issues other than digestive? Perhaps this person thinks you are dismissing symptoms of Celiac other than digestive?
If this family member has Celiac Disease and is a first degree relative, perhaps have your OB order a Celiac Antibody Panel...if you haven't already had one as ALL first degree relatives should be tested...regardless of pregnancy.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
