Joint Aches And Pains...

15 July 2013 - 05:06 AM

Both me and my son were diagnosed with coeliac disease about 18 months ago now and have been on the diet for as long. I have suffered from achey joints for a while but it has become more noticeable recently. Sometimes my elbows, wrists, knuckles and every joint in my fingers come over with a dull achey feeling which can sometimes be quite painful.

Does anyone else suffer with this problem? Is it a direct result of coeliac disease? I see my dietician in 2 weeks time so will see if she can shed any light on the matter. I am also anaemic, could this be why?

Any comments would be much appreciated :) Thank you!

Coeliac 3Year Old With Glucose In Urine...

13 February 2013 - 01:43 AM

My son was diagnosed with coeliac disease about a year ago, I also have it and found out around the same time. I noticed he was drinking a lot, always asking for drinks, waking in the night thirsty and was uncontrollable if refused a drink. Took him to the doctors yesterday and have now found glucose in his urine so looking like he has diabetes too. Does anyone else or their children have this? Is it common? I have no idea what the implications are...I feel like when he was first diagnosed with coeliac all over again...a dark pit of unknowing :(
If anyone could offer me any advise or information I would be so pleased.

Glucose Syrup (Made From Wheat) Gluten Free?

07 October 2012 - 06:45 AM

I bought some dates today and it says that the coating contains glucose syrup (made from wheat)...my first reaction was damn I cant eat them now! But I found something saying wheat based glucose syrup is still gluten free...is this true? Can I actually eat them??
