Off Gluten For 1.5 Years, But Having An Endoscopy For Nausea Next Month. Dr Wants Me To Eat Gluten To Get An Actual Diagnosis, Should I?
Yup it sucks. I found the worst thing was the loss of convenience to go out and eat without having to screen everyone and everywhere you you go to determine if it's safe. Pizza is basically ruled out completely since they have flour in the air. Beer....*sniff*... I miss it although there's a couple decent gluten-free ones. Omission lager is the best I've found and you can get it at publix.. Just remember your health comes first, learn as much as you can about getting gluten-free ( I did research for a week before I made the change so I could do it completely in one shot). You will adjust and you will be fine. Chin up!
Welcome to the site, Christi. The gluten takes a bit to get out of your system so there's no option of "sneaking" a little gluten treat and going back to nursing. Oh, how I wish it was a simple pump and dump situation!!
If you truly think your boy is having an issue with gluten you might want to "gluten light" him for the time and then consider blood testing him in the future.
