How long have you been gluten-free? If the gluten is still in your system you may have trouble gaining weight. Try enzymes and probiotics...they are very vital with absorbing the nutrients of your food. I know a great brand Enzymatic Therapy you can get them at the Vitamin Shoppe and probably other health food stores as well. They have probiotics as well. They are small and easy to swallow(I have a hard time swallowing pills and these are a piece of cake)

Peanuts are a very good high calorie thing to eat.

Ensure Plus is a good fill in snack and I have one every morning and night(they are 350 a bottle and the bottle is 8 oz.)

Amy's has a gluten free pizza out now...and most pizzas I have tried are gross but this is actually good and they are very high in calories

Amy's also has Mac and Cheese that is gluten-free and it's got 410 calories for this small serving and the mac and cheese is delicious as well. Amy's is a good brand.

For weight lifting you could always try creatine. I tried that for a little bit and it seemed to help along with the other stuff I was having. At the vitamin shoppe there are also weight gaining supplements.

Make sure that you are having enough calories ...if you want to gain weight you should have about 500 extra calories a day then what you usually have and you will see a difference. I gained 15 pounds back in a matter of 3 months after eating extra calories, and of course staying off of gluten.

Also make sure to take vitamins because some of what goes with Celiac is malabsorption so vitamins are also vital

Hope I helped :) E-mail me if you need any help finding anything

    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis.
