Healing Strategies In Addition To gluten-free Diet?
0

3 posts in this topic

I don't know if we're pre or post diagnosis. I have a lengthy post in the pre-diagnosis forum with our backstory. Officially my son's diagnosis is "Potential Celiac Disease". We're questioning the celiac disease theory at the moment because he isn't improving on the diet, but I wanted to pull out this question which would be based on the theory that celiac disease is the problem for him. Beyond being gluen-free, is there more we can do to help with gut healing and improving nutrient absorption? For people with a confirmed diagnosis of C.D., is there anything more that you have found helpful or necessary to recovery?

Thanks all!

Yes, there is a product called Metagenics UltraClear Sustain Medical Food, which comes in powder form to be added to a smoothie. After 18 months on a gluten-free diet (and I do have celiac), I still experienced diarrhea. My doctor recommended this product to heal my gut, and within two weeks, I felt "normal." If you're not interested in this product, though, a good place to start is to give him L-Glutamine, which helps heal the gut.

Thank you rosetapper. I will look into both options!
