And watching your daughter's energy levels and wellbeing improve will keep you motivated. It's just magical to see the improvement, but even this takes time.

I also just borrowed every book from the local library on coeliac. The one I found the easiest to read and understand in my frazzled state was:

"The First Year - Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free" by Jules Dowler Shepard

It gets easier and less expensive with time. We spent a months pay just on food in the first couple of weeks after diagnosis. There is a lot of trial and error as you try all the gluten-free alternatives. We are 18 months post diagnosis and everything feels pretty normal again. Except no takeaway. And that's probably a good thing. It is a huge adjustment but now it is just life as ususal for us. I think we are all eating healthier as a result of having to be mindful of our food, but we still let ourselves be slack and give them baked beans and microwaved cheese quesadillas sometimes.

Ditto all the people who said yes. Both from what my paediatric GI told me and from personal experience even trace amounts of gluten ingested by myself could lead to a serious glutening for my baby. Her poos would turn black and become like little pebbles that would roll out the side of her nappy. Poor darling.

In Topic: Already Seeing Improvements... Am I Dreaming?

After two days the whites of my 2yo daughter's eyes became brighter.

There were some definite improvements to behaviour straight away. That said we are 12 months down the track and still not fully recovered.
