I can't figure out the right sub forum for this question: I was diagnosed 2.5 years ago. I have two children and they were diagnosed at the same time (they were 1.5 and 4 at the time). Our house and our lives are entirely gluten-free and my husband never has gluten around me or the children under any circumstances. So, I am expecting our third and have been asked several times about this baby and gluten. Since I am strictly gluten-free and there will be no gluten around the baby, it will just have the gene but not celiac - correct? You have to have gluten ingested to trigger the actual disease? So, while the baby would never have gluten from me, around me or in the presence of it's (excuse the pronoun use of it!) siblings - what about out in the world? Birthday parties of peers or at a meal with just it's Dad? I can't figure out the status of what I would allow or how the baby should think of it's health. It is obviously genetically predisposed to have celiac and should therefore probably just stay from gluten as best as possible but does it need to be as strict as if already diagnosed? I may not understand the nature of how celiac develops - please help me out if I am on the wrong path or if you have any insights! Thanks!
