Getting Better All The Time:)

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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
