Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

I hope it's ok to brag and not ask a question. I'm one proud momma and other parents of kids without celiac don't understand. My son was diagnosed 5 weeks ago by biopsy. We have been gluten free for 4 weeks and 3 days. In that time he has gained 4 lbs - he had not gained a pound in a year and a half prior to this. He has also grown 1 full inch in ONE MONTH. I'm beyond thrilled. He has not had a tummy ache in 3.5 weeks. I just want to cry because I'm so happy. He has moved from the 20 percentile for both weight and height to the 50 percentile in one month. I'm so happy my child is now a typical 4 yr old. He runs and plays all day and he's not a TV junkie any more. He never asks to watch TV. Yesterday he went swimming TWICE!!!!! Thanks for all the support and tips on this site. I know I'm not alone in all this.
Yes! It is wonderful to have you share such a positive story! This is a very happy thing!

Anyway, you have every right to inspire us with your story and be proud of your precious son. I would say this is nothing short of miraculous!
When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

Improvement is wonderful to hear and very encouraging for others - especially when it happens to a little one with a great Mom.
Congratulations...well done...keep up the great work
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
