Living On Wheat Field

15 December 2010 - 03:37 PM

Our home is bordered on all sides by wheat fields. My two daughters and i have Celiac and my oldest especially became really sick a few months ago. The doctors dismiss us, because its a digestive disorder, but i don't think they understand what its like for a two-year-old and a five-year-old to be celiacs. They constantly put their hands in their mouth. My theory is that the powerful winds blow the wheat/gluten all over our things, such as toys, car door handle, etc. My girls touch it and then put their hands in their mouths and our contaminated. Our home is probably 20 yards from the fields. Does anyone living with Celiac have any thought on if this is a possible source of concern?

Preschool Concerns...please Help

17 October 2010 - 11:25 AM

My just turned 5-year-old was diagnosed just before her 4th birthday. We thought her preschool was doing a good job, but over the summer she became more focused, mature, confident. It was obvious she was doing great. When preschool began this year, her diarrhea began on day one. After a few weeks she is insecure, unable to focus, aggressive, impulsive and napping everyday. The diarrhea has stopped, but she is NOT ok. I've spoken with her teachers and it seems like they are doing a good job, but she is evidently experiencing the affects of continual contamination. Could she be getting sick simply from kids touching toys after they've consumed gluten? The more insecure she feels, the more her hands go in her mouth. Should i just home-school her? Please help!
