I have searched this site for quite awhile,have gotten alot of info,recipiesetc. I have a 4yr old with celiac disease and dh,also lactose int. every day seems to be trial and error but we get through it, I never ever thought about gluten until 9mths ,ago when our child was diagnosed, what a nightmare. Everything from food to meds, soap shampoo,calling companys, is very frustrating. My daughter is the only one at her daycare with celiac disease. I provide everything, this year she starts kindergarten a whole new can of worms to deal with. I see on this site alot of parents with children that have celiac disease. The meeting I attend for celiac disease is very informative but I have the only child so far,so I am hoping to converse with outer parents on this site.

Thank You so very much

You should try to find a ROCK group, raising our celiac kids which is a kids group and it is really helpful

Hi momofcddh: My 8 year old daughter was recently diagnosed, the gluten-free diet took some getting use to but we are both feeling a lot better on it. :D

As far as her school, she is in the 3rd grade and I am sure she is the only one with celiac disease too. She takes her lunch everyday and I asked her teacher if she would mind warming her hot lunch up (rice, chicken,corn pasta or hamburgers), I told her it wasn't as simple as packing her a sandwich. It has not been a problem yet and I hope it never becomes one.

I provide her snacks and candy for the treat jar. Everything has went pretty well this year except one time a parent brought in cup cakes and no one called me to let me know so that I could provide her with one. They gave her one and she ATE it!!! I was a little upset, I sent another letter to her teacher explaining the seriousness of this disease and told her that was like giving a sugar treat to a diabetic child!!! I instructed them to give her a couple pieces of her candy if that ever happened again, but if someone would call me to let me know I would arrange for my daughter to have a special treat too!!!

    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
    • He has a rash on his fingers from time to time. Angular Chetelis. Mouth sores. So skinny. Anxious. 
    • The blood test results are negative (and he had the complete panel).  No GI issues (per your posting).  What makes you suspect celiac disease?  
    • Hi WS, So sorry to hear your not feeling quite right just yet. I can relate! I believe in doing whatever is needed for you to be able to come to terms with the diagnosis, which it sounds like was given to you already but if you still need further evidence then do whatever is needed!  In regards to food, I am a pescatarian so I also don't eat meat but I get my protein from some seafood, eggs, beans, natural protein replacements, exct...I was vegetarian and found it extremely difficult on the gluten-free diet for my lifestyle. I found probiotics have really helped me but even now I still feel off days with my digestion and I think that just comes with having a digestive disease. I know what foods trigger it (Yes gluten-free foods!) and try to stay away. I remember the first month or so I was very sick from removing gluten, almost like withdrawal symptoms. Probably because I ate a lot of it prior so it was a shock. 3 1/2 years later, I still feel weak and light headed if I don't eat enough carbs/protein. Celiacs are known to have deficiencies already so your nutrition intake/supplements are super important! I hope your able to find peace with your health and get the answers your looking for!
