Sad For The Child But Not Much I Can Do

24 November 2011 - 04:00 PM

I just got back from my DH's family TG. A couple years ago 1 of my SIL's grandbabies was diagnosed with near fatal complications of celiac. It took doctors a while to figure out that it was gluten causing the almost fatal condition--I won't get into the graphics.

Anyhow, it came up in conversation that the doctor is saying the child has outgrown celiac. Apparently the child can eat something that family thinks is wheat but it is actually oats---don't know if it's on safe list here or not. Needless to say, everyone jumped on board with that---the parents are extremely young so it's pretty much a given they'll believe whatever the doctor tells them. I really like my SIL but due to other circumstances I am not in a position to say anything because then I'll just give another reason for others in the family to consider me the crazy outsider.

So, the child has healed some over the past couple of years. Since the child was asymptomatic so far as they knew, until the near fatal complications, I fear it's only a matter of time and they may not catch it until it's too late if they go back to the SAD diet.

Thanks for listening. I needed someplace to share this.
