Deducting Food From Taxes
0

27 posts in this topic

Hi!

I am a self-dignosed celiac, and so is my 2 year-old son. I am having trouble getting diagnosed officially. I had the blood test and it came up just a hair below positive. My doc then dismissed it and said there was no need to do a biopsy. I believe I do suffer from celiac disease and the reason my test was negative was because I am on Plaquenil for (possible) lupus and autoimmune issues, and it reduces my antibody counts. So, I've fallen through the cracks yet again. :(

Since that happened I decided to take matters into my own hands and put my son and I on a gluten-free diet. The changes in our health are nothing short of amazing! I know I am onto something here.

My question is - if I get tested by Enterolab and get a positive test, is that enough to warrant deducting food from my taxes? What are the rules on this? What about seeing a naturopath? There is apparently a great doc that specializes in celiac disease just an hour away from me in Nashua, NH.

The way I see it - nobody would willingly subject themselves to this diet if they didn't have to. I really feel it is imperative that my son and I remain gluten-free for the rest of our lives. So, why is it so hard to get a diagnosis? My son and I have most of the symptoms, autism runs in my family, I have autoimmune diseases, my grandfather died of colon cancer and my aunt currently has it.

Thanks so much for your input! :)

Never mind the above. My post got pinned into this conversation and I had no idea! Now I have the answers. Thanks!
