Yes, she's ok now thanks.  Frustrating because her numbers were so high when she was diagnosed two years ago.  They continue to come down but are still not "normal".  Then this kind of thing happens.....

Thanks for the input everyone.  I have time to figure it out I guess (or try to steer her in another direction) since this will happen in september.

 

Her current teacher gave them all candy on Friday before spring break started.  He told her it was gluten-free.  Wasn't.  Sigh.......

We're at almost two years with my daughter.  They're going down, but it's a very slow process........

Thanks everyone.  She is quite vigilant.  Her numbers have definitely gone down, just still high.  I don't have the details in front of me but the pediatrician when she was in hospital said they were some of the highest numbers she'd seen, and there has been steady improvement.  The pets are gluten free - one has allergies!  The house is not, there are a couple members who simply won't, however, she has her own cookware, cutting boards etc., and all my family cooking is gluten free.  It's baffling.  We'll just soldier on!


In Topic: Did You Have Hair Loss From Celiac?

21 January 2014 - 01:52 PM

Right before diagnosis, when she was really showing the signs or malnutrition, my daughter's hair (she was only 11 then) fell out in handfuls.  It was really awful for her.  Got very thin.  After a few months it stopped falling out, and started to grown in.  Then it happened again!  She's now been gluten-free for just about two years, her hair is nice and thick like it used to be, and we've had no problems.  She does take iron and Vitamin D.  I just noticed I answered this before :(  But it really is very upsetting, particularly for a female.
