Need Help...eating And Feeding Evaluation Form From School
0

4 posts in this topic

they know she has celiac disease at school. she was just diagnosed this summer.

school has been in for 4 days, tomorrow is day 5.

so far i am just sending her lunch, and she has permission to get fruit and drink and ice cream and veggies from school if there is something she wants and can have.

so far she has bought tangerines and a drink, but thats it.

today the school nurse called, and has sent home a paper to have filled out and signed by the doc just to help educate and make everyone aware and everything official.

(she is planning to come to my support group meeting i am having monday night)

so i need help as to what to put on this form.

it says:

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid

list foods to be substituted

list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.

thanks in advance for all your help

i am still new to this, and am learning..............

on the last 2 sites you need to read the products and make sure they say gluten free cause they don't sell some stuff that isn't.

If you google celiac 504 you should get some pretty good examples of answers for these questions. Also, try any of the websites of the celiac centers like Childrens Hospital Boston for advice about school.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P12.html

 

this page has a school packet that is really helpful.

 

http://www.childrenshospital.org/clinicalservices/Site2166/mainpageS2166P110.html

 

this is what usually I put.

 

list any dietary restrictions or special diet

Celiac - No gluten (any foods containing wheat,rye,barley, or oats) - barley may be listed on labels as malt
list any allergies or food intolerances to avoid
list foods to be substituted

Can eat fruit, vegetables, milk (chocolate and regular) [fill in]
list any special equipment or utensils that are needed

Avoid cross contimination with any breads or cereals. Food should be prepared on clean surface. Wash any pots. Only use clean metal utensils (etc.)

 

indicate any other comments about the childs eating or feeding patterns

there is also a food allergy action plan, but i dont think that one needs anything as it deals with epipens, etc

No epi pen is needed

also, a note from the nurse that the cafeteria manager sent me a copy of the menu for the whole month and wants me to know that if there is nothing she can eat on a certain day to let her know and she will be glad to fix whatever she needs.

    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.   
    • Hey everyone!! Dealt with morning anxiety, complete lack of appetite in the AM/diarrhea if I tried to eat, fatigue, etc. for about two months. Saw doctor and they first prescribed me antidepressants while they ran bloodwork. Got bloodwork yesterday, positive result for celiac, going to get the endoscopy/biopsy soon. Anyone else have morning anxiety like CRAZY before cutting out gluten? Afraid to leave the house because of feeling faint, dizzy, etc., like I'm going to pass out. I haven't actually passed out, but the feelings are all there. It's hard to overcome the anxiety some time!   Hoping someone else has had similar symptoms and that I can look forward to this being over soon!! Thanks everyone xoxo
