I am trying to see if a topic has been talked about before, but I can't seem to get the search down to less than a 1000 posts. I took out the word and, that took out 3000 topics. Sorry I just don't seem to be able to figuire this one out. I am looking for any info on tree nut, peanut , and dairy free stuff as well as gluten free. My daughter started kindergarten and there are children with other allergies.

Thanks so much for your help.

Sorry if this post is unorganized...I am trying to write it fast....

It can be hard to find things at times. If you choose the additional options you can narrow your search to a specific forum/category. This makes looking at your results easier. Ie. since you are looking for foods/products you could start by searching exlusively in that category. You can also filter by a member name, which is relevant at times---ie. if someone you know has a specific experience on a topic and you want to find their posts.

Other words you could try to search for too are casein (dairy), intolerance (word similar to allergy). Are you trying to find food lists of gluten, dairy, nut free foods? Also--do you have copies of the forbidden ingredients yet--for any of those items? You may be interested in this thread--on school and kids with food allergies:

Casein free: (The first thread has info I posted on casein free products)

Other food lists to ck out:

This website will teach you how to read labels to ck for all of the additional allergens you've mentioned:

Also--good brands that are cf/gluten-free: enjoylife, namaste, kinnikinnick

See this thread for info. on searching.

Unfortunately, some of the information may be outdated since we've had one pretty big board update since this was written (for example, I don't think there is an advanced usage help option'll see what I mean).

Oh, the best way to reduce the # of results you get--go to search, then click more can specify more clearly what you want.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
