In Topic: Please Sign This Petition For gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies!

Takala, the petition is for a cookie free of the top 8 allergens and also gluten-free. This way, one cookie would cover not only the celiacs, but also the peanut-allergic children, and anyone else sensitive to the top 8 - including soy. So many families have multiple children with food allergies to different things - it gets to tricky and limiting!

It can be done, and I truly hope the Girl Scouts will decide it is worthwhile to make their cookie program inclusive.

KarenG, ITA, they will need another bakery to make them. Maybe Enjoy Life would contract out, since they are already a gluten-free, nut-free facility.

In Topic: If You Get Glutened Friday Night, You Feel The Effects ________

Thank you for all your feedback.

Just to complicate issues ;) My 5 year old woke up with belly pain last night. Felt like she was going to throw up in the morning, then it went away. By 1pm, she had thrown up at a friend's house. Felt naseous the rest of the evening, D at bedtime, and just woke up to throw up again. She's clearly sick.

Now I remember that late last week, when my 3 year old had D for no reason I could trace at all, she was extremely cranky (my husband kept asking me if she had a fever) and complained that her tummy hurt (which she never does when she's having a reaction).

So... I think a bug went around my family.

Also, I'm being tested for Lyme - my practioner thinks that my non-typical fibro isn't fibro at all.

Unfortunately, nothing happens in a vaccum. I plan to stay gluten-free for another week or so, then test again.

Also check zinc levels. I do think the symptoms warrant a trial. OT helped my daughter's SPD quite a bit, but even when she "graduated", she couldn't stand dress-up clothes. Yet several months after being truly gluten-free (she needed a clean-out to reboot her system), she was able to prance around the house in princess dresses.

Dr Anca Safta is the pediatric GI with the Celiac Research Center in Baltimore. They are affiliated with the U of MD hospital downtown. The office is within the hospital - but the office is only for pediatric specialists and the surgical procedures are done in a children's hospital-within-a-hospital. The waiting room has toys and murals, the exam room has child-sized chairs. Dr Safta is very nice and is great with kids.
