Hi there. Already intro'd myself in the parents of kids section, but see that this is the place. My 11 year old daughter recently diagnosed. Very ill, hospital etc. Initially thought anorexia, blood and biopsy showed celiac. Baby steps. difficult adjustment for her for sure, but we're making small gains. :)

Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head.
