In Topic: Horrible Slate Article

29 July 2009 - 11:11 AM

I think the problem is that the article was to underestimate the condition of the Celiac to adopt a gluten-free diet and compare it with a mode of feeding ... Those who are not celiacs are indeed free to consume the type of food they like, but we can not assume that the gluten-free diet for those suffering celiac disease is caused by social conditions for pleasure is a need to stay alive.

In Topic: What Is Going On?

My son has had diarrhea for months. We tried various things including taking him off juice, dairy, and giving him probiotics before I decided to take him off gluten. When I tried a gluten free diet the diarrhea almost completely cleared up within the first day or two. He had an appt. with his allergist anyway so I suggested testing him for celiac with the blood test. I understand that it is very unlikely to come back positive in a 2 year old but, my husband is not very supportive without scientific evidence. When the test came back negative my husband strongly suggested putting him back on gluten. I did this hoping the return of diarrhea would convince my husband. He had been gluten free for about two weeks and of course the diarrhea returned immediately. After torturing my son for about a week my husband was starting to come around and agreed to once again take him off gluten. Now is where I become confused. Now that he is again gluten free his diarrhea did not go away as expected. He has been gluten free (time #2) for a week or so. I don't understand. If anyone has any ideas please share.
Thanks


The problem that laboratory studies were made after removing gluten from the diet, so it is very likely to have yielded negative results. Therefore it is recommended that no gluten is removed before any test ... Try again, thus feeding a "normal" prior to sampling ...
