In Topic: What Are You Cooking For Thanksgiving?

16 November 2011 - 07:30 AM

Any of the above willing to share some yummy gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes? I love to try a coffee cake and a spinach casserole. I'm looking for a cornbread recipe too. I want to have a gluten free thanksgiving/birthday dinner this weekend at home with my husband and 3 daughters (daughter age 2 is gluten intolerant). Trying to get the whole family to realize that a gluten free diet is yummy and a healthier way to eat. Thanks!

My toddler has a Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. She had a lot of the same symptoms your describing, she had those terrible diaper rashes, no solid BM's, she would cry in her sleep and wake up in the middle of the night. She was growing OK so it was hard to get the Dr's to believe there was something wrong with her. She has been off all gluten and dairy since she was 18 months, she is 2 now. She is doing soooooo much better. Try the diet and see if it helps, and I would consider eliminating dairy if you don't see immediate results with the BM's and the tummy troubles. WE found that my daughter was lactose intolerant secondary to her gluten intolerance.

Thank you everyone so much for the responses. This is so helpful!! I was wondering if you also eliminated dairy? Did everyone see an immediate change after going gluten-free?

Thank you again.

WE eliminated dairy only because we thought that was primary culprit (whole milk) although she did improve when we removed diary she did not improve completely until we eliminated gluten. It turns out she was lactose intolerant secondary to the gluten intolerance (just like in Celiac). While this was all happening she started showing signs of her disease (JDM). I think the gluten intolerance was a triggered her disease, among some other things. I have no idea what the paleo diet is...I'll have to google it. My husband has RA and I have trying to get him to change is diet. No luck so far. I hope this helps.

Hi Cara in Boston, I think it is 100% possible to have a gluten-intolerance that has the same symptoms of Celiac without the Villi destruction. My daughter is 2, she is gluten-intolerant, she started showing symptoms when we introduced solids. WE saw GI @ Childrens Boston too. Just as an FYI, if your sons endo come back negative don't rule out Gluten-intolerance. All of my daughters tests came back negative for Celiac (and she had them all including gene). The Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance is a real thing. I hope your getting your answers soon.

HI There! My daughter does not have RA but she has another autoimmune called Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM), they are similar. JA affects the joints and JDM affects the muscles and the skin. She is 2 and was dx @ 18 mos with JDM. She is also gluten intolerant. She started showing symptoms of the gluten-intolerance when we introduced solids. I would swear she is Celiac, but all her testing came back negative. She is responding very well to treatment. I know she would not be doing as well if we were not gluten-free. I hope this helps.
