My daughter was diagnosed 3 years ago and as it's not realistic to expect a (then) 6 year old to shop or cook for herself . . . not only did she not have a large enough allowance to pay for her groceries, she wasn't allowed to turn on the stove . . .
I've learned a LOT in the last three years!!!
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

I am not 100% gluten free. My 2 year old son is diagnosed Celaic. Our household is 99% gluten while at home. The only time we are not gluten free is when we eat out (which is not often). So nope you are not alone here
This describes me best.
Hubby and 1 of my sons have celiac disease. I'm gluten-free 95% of the time (mainly because it's easier)...but do eat gluten if I eat out
Son diagnosed with Coeliac Disease Oct 2006 by biopsy (at age 13yrs)

Hindsight being what it is, I can see how many of her health issues may be related to a long standing gluten problem that her doctors where she used to live never picked up on. She has many of the listed symptoms of the disease except this recent diarrhea was the first gastro intestinal issue that she can recall. When an emergency doctor recommended that she be tested for celiac disease, her primary agreed immediately. We began eliminating gluten at the end of June (I say began as everyone here knows how long it takes to recognize all the possible sources.) We are currently trying to figure out if she is also lactose intolerant or if the abdominal pain she sometimes experiences is part of the healing process.
Back to the question: My celiac disease test was negative, so neither my husband nor I are gluten-free although we are very careful about cross contamination. Our Golden Retriever, Ruby, is not gluten free either, but as my mom's best friend, you can all bet the puppy treats she gets from Mom sure are!
Thanks for being here.

Stomach pains from consuming dairy, if she does not get stomach pains foam gluten, sounds like lactose intolerance. Give her lactase before she eats dairy and see if it solves the problem. It might be possible than she has a problem with the protein, casien. If this is the case, it is like gluten. Avoidance is the cure.
Diagnostic Gluten Intolerant Feb 2010.
Celiac blood test was negative. Small intestine biopsy was negative. Gene test positive.
