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.
thanks in advance for all your help

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
