In Topic: Does This Sound Like Celiac?

30 October 2012 - 05:29 PM

Does this sound like celiac? My son has had diarrhea and vomiting (about 1x/day) for the last 4 weeks. We thought it was from the cold virus that turned into an ear infection and later bronchitis. Once the virus cleared up, the d & v continued. The pediatrician ran a stool sample, positive for the tissue transglutaminate = 5. But negative for the other celiac indicator (I didn't write that one down). On top of that, he vomits at least 1x/day usually in the morning. He also vomits if he's stressed about homework or going to school. He's missed 16 school days so far. When I keep him home he's seems sick. Laying on the couch, head on a pillow. He perks up for the weekends and wilts on mondays. We are getting the other test results back this week to see if there is anything else going on. If not, he will have to go back to school. I plan to speak with the teachers, etc. so they are on board. Help!

In Topic: Are You Super-Careful About Possible Cc In Packaged Foods

How do you know if an item was produced on equipment or just in the same facility? Does the packaging specify? What if the facility changes their routine, how will you know?
