Sounds like u need to ask doctor for a celiac test, it may be more serious than a intolerance. I can relate to some of what you've described w/ my kids. Gluten-Free may be the answer. You have enough symptom for doctor to suspect, but too often celiac is overlooked.

7/8 is not too young to understand. My 6&7 yr old r gluten-free & completely understand what food is safe & what food is dangerous for them and that different people have different problems with food. May I suggest u arrive with your own snacks to share... maybe something they can relate to as "normal" like tortilla chips & salsa, ice cream, cut up fruit w/ caramel dip or delicious cupcakes that happen to be gluten-free..that way they don't think you are "odd" just eat a little different.

So many of us have heard doctors label our/our childrens celiac pre-diagnosis as a virus. Get him tested, demand it...if it is celiac, a gluten-free diet will improve his health but it may take some time and may require additional supplements for deficiencies. My advice, don't accept doctors dx if as a mom your gut tells you they are wrong. My 1yr old would have died from his diagnosed virus had I not taken research intoy own hands, and yes, celiac was the answer. Also please research a kid named Taylor, I think he uses glutenaway as a social media name, he may be inspiring to yoy and your son.

medical opinion may differ from mine, but i have no love for the doctors who screwed up my 22 month olds diagnosi,, if i followed their direction...he would have died.

do not make your baby eat gluten if he is suffering. Why torture your little one with food that is,hurting him. Find a doc who will give u a diagnosis based on symptoms/bloodwork.

In Topic: Newbie With Questions

Great questions.
When grocery shopping...a lot of manufacturers are starting to label gluten-free. I alsood google products as I shop, many of their websites provide gluten info im faq or allergy section, if u cant find it, dont buy it!

Someone else mentioned FIND ME GLUTEN FREE. its a must have app to learn what restaurants offer gluten-free menus & even more useful are the consumer reviews of their gluten-free experience. In a restaurant, I say I have an allergy to gluten (celiac or autoimmune disease is confusing to food servers but allergy gets u attention).

My church offers a low-gluten communion wafer, its better than nothing. You can ask, or just go for the wine, I doubt Christ would mind!

Its debatable about cosmetics/soaps/lotions...best bet is to do your best to find gluten-free options, especially for anything on your lips.
Good Luck.
