My daughter who was diagnosed a year and a half ago w/Celiac, seemed to do great for exactly a year gluten-free, then she started getting bad stomachaches again and headaches. I started her on the SCD diet and also removed dairy. All of her symptoms went away. We now follow the Paleo diet pretty much, which is grain free and dairy free. It is just very hard to follow for a 7 yr old. Lately she has had stomachaches again and some mild D. I'm hoping that it is just a stomach bug that has been going thru our house and not the return of symptoms yet again...
I was just diagnosed with Celiac by both a blood test and an endoscopy. My question is this, I have read that sometimes when people are deep in gluten stress (which I am), the body can see even rice as if it were gluten because its protein resembles gluten. So it may be necessary and wise to go grain free and dairy free along with gluten free for three months to get to a "normal" space before introducing rice or dairy back in. Thoughts? I am just trying to decide whether to go entirely gluten free for a while and see how I feel or if I should try the previously mentioned idea?

It sounds like you have already done some research and I don't know if you've read the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Dr. Haas, but it could be very beneficial and enlightening. Also, The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf is VERY good, as well. Good luck to you!
