Grandchild With Disruptive Behavior - Undiagnosed Celiac

25 May 2008 - 09:20 PM

My grandchild has been difficult to deal with - lies, moody, sweet, sincere, sneaking out at night, and now has run away from home. Celiac is in the family by numerous members and I am trying to get my daughter to take seriously the idea that her daughter could be affected by celiac disease causing these behavior problems. My best bet would be to have someone else who has experienced these problems in a family member, preferably a teenager or late adolescent. My undiagnosed sister had mental issues when alive and my main reaction to gluten ingestion is personality change and depression.

Trying to keep a teen on a gluten free diet is tough. However, now that she has progressed to running away perhaps her parents will be willing to try getting her gluten-free as she will no doubt be grounded when she returns.

I would really appreciate any help or suggestions anyone has. Thanks
