She was asymptomatic and routinely tested because it is more common in kids w/DS.
Anway I came here to post recently to find out if anyone had used Juice Plus products for the kids who have celiac disease. They say it's gluten-free but they use fiber from barley and oats. So I wanted to search more before I give them to her. The company says they test the product and it shows 0 gluten, that the husk they use does not have gluten. Hmmmm? Anyone?
Thanks! Nicole~ mom to Darrah, 6 years, Tarenne 5 years w/celiac disease and Down syndrome, Marley, 2 1/2 years and Emery, almost 1!

I was reading your post and although I don't have an answer for you about the Juice Plus I do have a question.
I also am new to this board. I have a son who was just diagnosed with celiac. He was also asymtimatic just a little short for his age. Anyway, no stomach problems whatsoever. You mentioned that your daughter was also asymtimatic but now when you have accidental slip-ups you can tell how bad it is for her. What did you mean by that? Are you saying that while eating gluten before she was gluten-free she got no stomach aches and now when she does eat it by accident she gets stomach aches or other symptoms?
This is something I am really worried about and have heard conficting things about whether or not this happens.

Now when she gets gluten she has horrible diarrhea and it has almost a chemical smell, she even has vomitted before after ingestion, she'll say "Mom stomach ache, shot". So funny she equates shots with being well just from wellness visits.
I have read that once the body is cleansed of gluten it's reaction to introduction of gluten is more severe. I hope that helps! Nicole
