At the end of Novemember my DD was diagnosed with celiac thru blood work. It was her ped that did this. We were sent to a GI, but he was out of the country till the first of the year. Well considering her symptoms were servere and her wheat allergy also tested really high I took her of gluten.

Finally in Jan we see the GI. Who runs his own test including biopsy and guess what she test negitive. Well dah I tell him she has been gluten free for 10 weeks. We make the decision to stick with the gluten free diet since things are going so well and he agrees with me (at this appiontment anyway) that she is Celiac.

Now last week in the process of trying to get things lined up for kindergarten we go back to the GI for help with info to give the school. He now says there is no way my DD is celiac because his test say she is negative, and if I really feel she is then I need to do a 6 to 8 week challenge and re-test.

Man am I fusterated this same doctor just diagnosed her father Celiac 10 days before this appiontment. Its like they cannot keep there patients straight. It took everything I had in that appiontment not to scream in his face. I cannot do a gluten challenge by time we figured out what was wrong with my DD she had been on antibiotic for 7 weeks and still had what we thought was major infection.

Anyway, sorry let my emotions override my piont. I am confused about what to do with school now. Her prescholl teacher was wounderful. She was with us thru the hardest time in my DD life. She has been very careful not to CC my child. My fear is without the accual letter from the GI stating she has Celiac the school is going to think this is a choice I made and not neccessary. How do I get them to understand my child is Celiac and she will become very ill if she even plays with playdo.

Does anyone has any insight on the best way to go about this.

And, get copies of all records and find a doctor, any doctor, to write the Celiac letter.

Try am ND.

Please don't apologise for being emotional. Your daughter needs you to be!

You should get the wheat allergy letter from your doctor first with something in it about a high level sensitivity to both eaten gluten/cc and topical (to cover the playdough etc).

Then find out who else is available in your region who might be more progressive wrt celiac and gluten intolerance. Get that celiac letter in the first appointment so you don't need to go through all that again. If you don't get it try another. One appointment only. Take a copy of all the history and write a detailed list with letter (with all your and daughters experience) to pass to the clinic before your appointment. Include ALL of her dads information.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
