Outgrown "gluten Free" Bracelet
0

7 posts in this topic

I have two small rubber bracelets from www.STATkids.com that we no longer use. They are kind of small - they fit my son when he was 5 but seems like it would fit 3-6 year old. Plain red rubber (like the livestrong bracelets) with large white print "GLUTEN FREE". They came in handy when we were first diagnosed. My son was quite shy and if needed, he could just show his bracelet. I felt better with him wearing them at camp or with babysitter too . . .just to remind them, until everyone got the hang of it.

If there was someone out there who could use them, I'd be happy to send them to you (USA only please).

Just let me know and we can exchange addresses privately.

That is a great idea! We are currently doing a 30 day gluten-free challenge with my 4 year old son. I have a feeling from the way he is responding that this will probably be a more permanent diet for him. Where did you get the bracelets, may I ask?

I think I got them from Amazon but their website also has a store. I'd be happy to send them to you if you think you could use them. Just send me your mailing address: myboytom@yahoo.com

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
