In Topic: Dr Says Not Celiac, I'm Not Sure

15 September 2012 - 01:20 PM

my son came back negative on all tests. all my doctors (and we have seen LOTS) has said he is not celiac and most don't believe in gluten intolerance. he has been gluten free for almost 2 years and i still doubt myself without the diagnosis. he is not growing (still under 1st percentile) and has frequent tummy problems- because of accidentally having gluten. last week he was sick a lot and i thought, it must be something else, not gluten because i could think how or when he had some. then yesterday i found out that my husband has been giving him a new vitamin c tablet. i checked with the manufacturer and they contain gluten. long story, but the point is.... trust your instincts and doctors don't always know best.

In Topic: Kid Friendly Dinner Ideas

my kids favourite is chicken noodle soup- don't need to add chicken. veggies, flat rice noodles, chicken stock (or veggie stock), sesame oil, oyster sauce, tamari and a bit of sugar.

In Topic: High Fat High Protein Diet 6 Year Old

15 January 2012 - 03:52 AM

Before discovering my son was celiac i was told he was small due to a "too healthy diet", which is rubbish because he eats all sorts of foods. He has been gluten free for a year and is smaller than my 4 year old even though he is also 6. I have tried a high fat diet, but found it is really easy to get into bad eating habits. I found myself giving him extra serves of ice-cream etc. Its hard because a lot of foods that are high in fat are also high in sugar and salt. I have toned it down now and i just don't think this is healthy for a young child no matter how small they are. My current doctor suggested to put a slice of butter on top of every meal which works because you are raising the calories without increasing the junk.
