In Topic: Really? Celiac Disease Is Influenced By Season Of Birth - New York Times (Blog)

29 October 2012 - 11:14 AM

My daughter has a March birthday as does one of her friends (who also has Celiac). And her first winter was a rough winter, illness-wise. Seems like as good as a theory as any.

Hi Mike, Sorry to hear about your little boy. My daughter was diagnosed at the same age and at the time had fallen off the growth chart (less than 1% percentile) and was not walking. We just assume she was going to be a "late walker" but in retrospect she was just in too much pain. After we got her diagnosed the vomiting and diarrhea subsided within a week and within 2 months she was back on the growth chart (20th percentile) and walking. AS for eating, I am sure once he starts feeling better his appetite an curiosity for food will return. As for foods, we did very mild foods at first: mac and cheese (rice or quinoa noodles), risotto, pancakes, scrambled eggs, homemade meatloaf or meatballs, burrito bowls, gluten-free certified oatmeal, polenta, etc. I am sure right now it seems like there is nothing to eat but really we eat the same meals as everyone else - just gluten-free versions. We also let her snack on raisins and chex mix as her iron levels were low. Feel free to reach out if you'd like. Best, Kristen

I would also suggest have the scope. We did it with my 16mo. who was also very sick at the time and had already had to endure an upper GI series just days before. All of her tests were positive for Celiac but the doctor's reasoning was that if I was going to take an entire category of food off my daughter's table FOREVER, we should be 100%. I agree. They were also able to see the extent of damage while in there and that was helpful to know. And though it was traumatic, the trauma was mine and not hers. The doctors were wonderful, sang to her while they gave her the nitrogen, and I held her. She was groggy after but that was the worst of it. And then we knew.

Thank you. I'm hoping it was just a GI bug... maybe she just gets is longer and worse than most. She seems a bit better today so hopefully we are on the mend.

In Topic: Birthday Cake

My friend made the basic double chocolate cake recipe from the Miette cookbook (page 55). It is not a gluten-free cookbook but this particular recipe had little flour in it compared to others so we/she tried it. I guess it was a bit labor intensive (sifting and such) but it was the BEST cake I have had. Period. And I am not Celiac (but we eat this way for my daughter who is). I've been meaning to have her scan the recipe for me. Let me know if you would like it and I will get it for you. She used Cup4Cup flour. And she made cupcakes. (Seriously, they were so good that I let each of my kids have one on my birthday, froze some (they defrost great) and then proceeded to eat 4 myself over the next 2 days.) Also, the Stonewall Bakery Vanilla ones were also great, again with Cup4Cup. Non-gluten-free people raved about them. not knowing they were gluten-free.
