#858896 Odd Happenings That May Have Got Us Diagnosed Sooner:

Posted by Christine0125 on 16 March 2013 - 04:48 PM

I had the low amniotic fluid during pregnancy too. I wish my dentist hadn't passed off my complaints of canker sores as hormonal. Although I take most of the blame because I'm notorious for avoiding doctors so until I was dealing with daily nausea I didn't discuss my annoying symptoms with doctors earlier... Even then I had to ask for the celiac testing as I was told reflux, gall bladder, IBS... I am hoping as awareness increases fewer people have to suffer with these symptoms for years.

I was gluten light for 2 months then did a 2 week gluten challenge and that was plenty to show positive results on the bloodtest.

I was fully functional on gluten just some annoying symptoms but never enough to call in sick. I did a 2 week challenge prior to my blood test and it was enough to get positive results.

So sorry you're feeling down. I keep telling myself this will become the new normal in due time for not just myself but my family as well. I'm also waiting for that day because I still seem consumed by it.

I would think there are some kind of standards that the kitchen must abide to in order to serve children with allergies. Do they have a list of safe foods that can be provided to you to make sure your outside food fits in with the guidelines of what is allowed in the center (no peanuts, etc)?
