How To Cope After Negative Blood Results

What is SCD??

At various points he has been dairy free, fruit free, haven't done grains. And now he is Lactose free - ie L/F. He has probiotics.

He hasn't had a colonoscopy- think they were waiting to see if it all resolved on a gluten-free diet!

The SCD diet is very scrict and gets a little hard to follow but the results are worth it.

My daughter being almost 4 has adjusted so well I couldn't be more proud. I run an in home daycare and though I try and cut out the sugar treats to my daycare kids I can't fully restric it when their parents bring them things such as fruit snacks, my poor little girl has to watch other kids eat what was once one of her fav treats. I think it hurts me more than it hurts her that she can't eat a lot of foods but she is so strong and says

I like the SCD; however, my biggest issue with it is that the site and book seem outdated. The other big issue I have is their pushing of the homemade yogurt even if you have a bad reaction to milk. I believe in the book she mentions to go for it unless you are anaphylactic. Many of us have allergic reactions to milk that are not anaphylactic but are also not simple lactose intolerance. One theory they use is that you are depriving the bacteria of food; however, many of the foods they recommend are high in sugars. What's worse is that many are high in fructose, a gi issue for many.

Still, I do think it is worth a trial. I am eating paleo and having good success with that. I do avoid certain foods that SCD says to avoid.

Like with everything, you have to find what works for you and that may be different than what works for me and everybody else.

I agree it is very outdated, we bought the book and view the website as our guide but we do not by any means follow it strictly. No we don't eat any of the illegal foods but we haven't made the home made yogurt or cottage cheese as my daughter does have anaphylactic reactions to dairy. I have found a few new recipes in the book such as the muffins that turned out amazing! I feel it's been a good starting point for us. With all of this being so new I have been overwhelmed now that im digesting it all I will be doing more research on other diets such as the GAPS and paleo diets.

My daughter is going to be 4 next month and has had stomach issues since 2 weeks old. My husband and I have discovered all of her allergies/intolerances on our own doctors honestly haven't done jack for us aside from telling us she has 5 ft of poo backed up in her.

With her being so restricted and her birthday only 3 weeks away I'm stressing about what to do for her birthday cake/cupcakes.

With her being so restricted and her birthday only 3 weeks away I'm stressing about what to do for her birthday cake/cupcakes.

I am not extremely familiar with SCD so I'm just throwing this out there. Is there any cookie recipe that you can make? We made a cookie cake for my youngest because we couldn't figure out a safe cake to make. The one we made was a grain free vegan chocolate chip cookie made with honey from Elana's Pantry and instead of putting the chocolate chips into the dough I put them on top in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head since she was having a Mickey and Minnie party.

P.S. I hope that your daughter has a wonderful birthday and that you will both be healthy and happy.

Chocolate chip cookies

I hope it will work for you. I just looked at the recipe again and it calls for agave nectar and I had changed it to an equal amount of honey and I used canola oil instead of grapeseed. And I hear you on the sugar thing...honey is the only one I can handle.

Doctors (and the medical tests they use) don't know everything. It was just a very short 60 years ago that the polio vaccine was developed. Heck, bloodletting was still in use in the 20th century! Listen to your body...it knows...

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
