I Knew He Needed To Eat Gluten Free! But Not Celiacs

03 May 2009 - 09:18 AM

I have been at this forum since January ish of this year. You all have helped me tons more than any doctor my son has ever seen. We started our son on a gluten free diet and he has thrived more than anyone can imagine. To our shock we found out this week our son has a form of autism. To any sceptics that do not beleive that the gluten free diet can help, we are living proof it does. I have joined many support groups and you would not beleive the resistence of switching their child diet. People would rather have their child on drugs! They think it will be to hard to keep them on this diet. This train of thought is very shocking to me, but to each his own. As of right now my son does not need any meds and will take every route I can to keep it that way. This diet is hard but nothing in life is easy. Thank to all who have been on this journey to find answers for my son.

What Would You Do?

02 March 2009 - 05:26 AM

So my B12 was low and they gave me an injection 3 weeks ago. I dont know about other people but I know my body, and I can garentee it is low again. My celiac test came back neg (not shocked started the diet first) and I have had a great improvement with quality of life since starting the diet. It got even better with my b12 shot and perscription D. My question is the doc. wanted me to wait 6 weeks before testing my levels (to see if it is dietary- hahaha- or my body) and I do not think I can go that long. I am getting tired again and not nearly awake as I was, it feels like the fog is coming back. I just woke up and am enjoying life for the first time in 6 years. They told me that I should have been neurologic last time it was so low. Yeah , really want that to happen. Should I wait, part of me says yes then the other part is like " girl are you insane, you just wasted 6 years of your life" What would you do?

Major Gluten Set Back In 5 Year Old.

17 February 2009 - 07:38 PM

I have a son with major behavior problems when eats gluten. We have been very strict with a gluten free diet. On Valentines day he glutend himself on cookies. (5 years old) He got them with some valentines and did not show them to me. We have had major set backs. The first few days his fine motor skills suffered tremendously and his behavior started up ( no attention span, does not listen or gets distracted when talking to). then on the third I noticed his pot belly. I am on day six and am my wits end. Even before he was gluten free he was not this bad. Its hard dealing with and watching. I know it is the food, not him but it is so hard not to get frustrated. He is only 5. I am affraid for him. He starts K next year and I do not want him labled if for some reason he gets glutend. It gets hard. I know he just wanted to be like the other kids, this was his first holiday gluten free, but the end result is horrible if he eats it. I feel like a bad mom when I get upset, but it is to the point where you can ask only one thing at a time. ( example- get your shoes, he will go by his shoes and if there is a toy he will play with it, so I have to remind him, then he will get his shoes then I have to tell him to bring them to me or put them on.) With out gluten he will go get his shoes bring them to me and put them on or wait for me to. Its like he is stuck in a two year olds brain when he is on the stuff. I just can not wait for it to be worn off. It took me 6 days the last time I got glutend, so it may take longer for him. My husband is in awe at the major difference from the gluten. I guess it just proved to him that there was a problem. I know he still had questions when the test came back neg, but he is still a great support. Thanks for listening to my rant. Im sure this to in time will pass, although the sooner the better.
