I figured I am already going to have to for breakfast.  She gets tired of taking sandwiches everywhere.  It wouldn't be so bad if it was just one girl, but there will be others that my daughter doesn't know.  She will have to explain why she is eating different.  That is fine for her friends that she sees all the time, they get it.  It is hard for the first time.  We are all still so new to this.

Interesting to read.  My daughter is only 10, but will have to deal with this some time in the future.  Of course, by then, so many things may have changed.

Whole foods are just that; meats, veggies, fruit, whole (non-gluten) grains, etc.    I would try it for a while until things calm down and then add in other foods. A lot of places say to skip the gluten free substitutions (i.e nuggets, pizza, fish sticks etc..) until you are more healed.  It does mean cooking from scratch most of the time.

Thanks everyone!  I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to have new eyes on the problem!


We are stopping dairy today.  Keep your fingers crossed!


Whole food diet...say more.  We don't eat a lot of packaged food right now as it is.  Is it just cooking from scratch?  But does that mean no gluten free flours?  No gluten free pasta? I did a little googling, but I would love a little of your perspective.


Seriously, thanks.  I can't tell you how much it means to me to know that it may just take a little more time and careful eating.

I don't know how old your daughter is.  Mine is 10 and was dx'd in January.  Mine was still having severe stomach pains after going on the gluten-free diet.  She ended up with a colonoscopy and another endoscopy.  Her small intestine was almost healed after 1 month on the gluten-free diet and there were no signs of and IBD's.  We finally concluded her stomach pains were STRESS!  Can you believe it?  We started stress reduction techniques and she started to improve.  She is doing very well now.


It sounds like you are doing everything right.  It does take time for the antibodies to go down.  We go back in September for her blood work.


DD also was off dairy and soy for almost 2 months.

My daughter is 10.  She likes the gluten-free breads and baked goods now.  She never liked their wheat counterparts.  So, she is not feeling deprived.  The only thing that would be nice about a pill is to prevent CC.  Otherwise, we are good with the gluten-free diet.
