Topics I've Started

The First Ob Visit....

20 September 2008 - 05:30 PM

Hi everyone! I am preggo! :) I am currently looking for an ob, but was wondering what should I say about my Gluten-free diet. I do not have an official diagnosis. I have responded to the diet very well, and am having a relatively easy pregnancy compared to the last one.

I may say nothing, too many docs have insinuated that it was all in my head and many other unprofessional remarks.

Those of you with a diagnosis: any specific advice from your doc?

merci beaucoup!

Blood Test Results Are In....

08 August 2008 - 04:47 PM

We finally got the blood test results today. Ds is not celiac (however he has been on a wheat/gluten free) for over a year. However he is allergic to barley, and rye. My ds had classic symptoms: D, C, distended belly, slow growth. The doctor was quick to say that he didn't need to be gluten free...but how will we ever know if he's allergic to most gluten items????

On the other hand its impossible to buy wheat/barley/rye free and not gluten free.

Sorry just needed to vent...

Gluten Free Restaurants In Washington, Dc?

Hello all... I am going to DC for a few days in Aug. I was wondering if anyone knew of any Gluten-free restaurants. Thanks in advance!:)

Chicken Bouillon

23 July 2008 - 10:38 AM

I bought some Orrington Farms chicken bouillon. It said gluten free but has MSG listed as an ingredient. I am confused, some lists have MSG as ok and others don't. I used it to make pea soup and had heartburn and a few other bad stomach vibes...

Does anyone know if MSG is truly gluten free? I know its not good for you, but its in everything like taco seasoning and chicken bouillon.

Gluten Sensitivity And Older Children

10 July 2008 - 06:32 AM

Hello! First off, I would like to say that you all are wonderful. I wish I had come here when my baby was diagnosed with his wheat allergy. Now I am convinced gluten is causing slight ADHD problems and neurological ones in my older son. I doubt if any doctor here will ever listen to me. But... he has a checkup scheduled for next week. I was wondering how do I approach the gluten testing with the P.A. (who is very understanding-and encouraging!)
I am fine with not having a diagnosis. There's too much heart disease, cancer, thyroid, lupus etc. in my family for me to wait for a diagnosis. I like feeling energized, and want the same for my children. However, since my son goes to a public school I would like to have an official diagnosis on file for his protection.

We went gluten free for a week and I noticed a dramatic improvement. He was able to listen and comprehend the first time you tell him something. he wasn't tired and he was easy to get along with. Now the problem comes in with my husband. he won't go gluten free and has pizza, doughnuts, etc. My son couldn't resist these items and we're back to poor motor skills, brain fog, lethargic. Another improvement on the Gluten-free diet- he wasn't hungry all the time.

Will they be unlikely to do the blood test on him because I don't have an official diagnosis? Or would I be better off with the allergist?
