Hi! I'm sure many of you are new enough to not remember me. I've lurked a bit, but haven't really posted much for quite a while now. I've been busy visiting the boards at Babycenter.com! I'm now 36 weeks pregnant and give all the credit to going gluten free (and, thereby, to you all here as well for all of the help and support you gave me in doing so). If anyone is interested, I can share the whole testimonial (I have posted it on the pregnancy board here...), but there are definately too many things to think it's coincidence. Hubby and I have a little boy due August 19 who looks to be developing 100% perfectly, despite my age and a few other potential issues. I'm also maintaining iron and other levels even throughout the pregnancy better than I have at any other point in my life. I have had severe morning sickness and am still on prescription meds to keep it under control. We're totally looking forward to meeting our new little man in just a few short weeks!

Congratulations and welcome back!! I do remember you. I'm so happy for you and your husband. You are going to be so busy now you won't believe it! But feel free to post your testimonial because you had quite a road as I recall and it may be of help to someone who is struggling like you did. Hope all continues to go well for you and thanks for letting us know how you are doing!

Congratulations! Fertility issues is the main reason that keeps me going gluten-free with my silent celiac dd. So glad it all is working out. I hope you will try to breast feed. There is a lot if research that shows that may help protect the development of celiac and type 1 diabetes. I did not do it with my 1st and she got celiac. I did for a year with #2 and she is fine despite still having the genes. So just try! No regrets like me!

I'm very pro breastfeeding and think it was the best choice for both of my boys. I cherrish the times we had alone bonding. My youngest son would nurse and play with my hair. To this day when he is tired or not feeling well he plays with it. So sweet.

Well, I breast fed my celiac son for 16 months. In hindsite I think he had celiac as a baby but didn't show positive on blood work until he was almost 6 years old. He was first tested when he was 3 after I was diagnosed. All his symptoms as a baby and toddler make sense now. I was unknowingly gluten light while breastfeeding for the first 10 months. I avoided dairy, rice, oats, and tree nuts. He reacted to all of those. I ate a lot of fresh fruit/veggies and meat but was not gluten free. I also fed him barley cereal.

Oldest son was breastfed for 14 months. He is not celiac but is non celiac gluten intolerent.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
