My daughter had a well visit appointment at the doctors today and I am amazed at the difference in her in the past year.

At a year old before going gluten free she weighed 12 lbs 10 oz and was 22 inches long.
Today at 26 months old and almost a year gluten free she weighs 27 lbs 6 oz and is 33 1/2 inches tall!

And another huge plus is that this time last year her hemoglobin was 8.3 and it is now 12.4.

Today was a day for good news with her...even though we still have things to work through I am so happy to have a healthy little girl :)

Thank you! I am actually really glad that she is so young since it was easier to change her diet and she is so used to eating this way that I don't think it will bother her.

Thank you! I think we were more excited then the ped since she goes to a family practice she sees a different doctor every time, she had never seen that particular doctor before.

That is AMAZING!!!

It is awesome that you got a diagnosis at an early age, like you said, far easier to just make gluten free foods the norm for her, she never knew anything was different. My kids are 7 and 4, and while I am waiting to find out if they are celiac (I just found out 6 weeks ago for myself) I find it extremely overwhelming to think about removing their staple foods like pasta and waffles :)

It really is awesome news, I am sure you are just over the moon about it!

It was amazing to hear that :)

As far as your children, my oldest daughter was 4 1/2 when we found out that we had a problem with gluten and her only symptoms were eczema and a bad gag reflex. We were not aware that she had a problem at the time, but the doctor said to try her gluten free to keep her little sister and I healthy (we were very surprised when her skin got better and she could eat softer foods like mashed potatoes and yogurt). Anyway she adjusted to the change pretty well since we sat her down and explained about healthy eating and how not all "healthy" foods were good for us.
