In Topic: Do Your Pets Eat Gluten Free?

Yesterday, 07:51 PM

We have one old lab that is on gluten-free food (Costco) and gluten-free "treats" (Costco dried chicken breasts that I tear into smaller pieces).  Because the celiacs in the house are still young I didn't want their hands near any gluteny foods.

 

For the record, the dog's coat has never looked better!


In Topic: 504 Question

I was wondering about this too. Would this help for missing days of school because of celiac pain? My daughter was diagnosed a couple of months ago and has missed quite a few days already because of it. What else is it good for?

It's also good to have a "same page" mentality.  If you talk to the teacher about unrestricted bathroom access and she abides.  Great.  But what about when a sub shows up, your kid has an issue and runs out of the room?  That's not fair to the kid that everybody doesn't follow the same rules.

The letter from her physician with her DX listed as celiac is all you need to get a 504.  How badly do you want to fight for it?

The cafeteria wipes down tables with their old dirty rag, so my kid owns her own health. A thing of wipes is attached to the wall for her to grab one and use (school provided). She also keeps a container in her desk, just in case (mom provided).

Like Stephanie said - figure out what you need and go from there. And be ready to put in the leg work b/c you're the one that will be dealing with the specials teachers to check supplies.

The biggest thing is getting your kid to advocate for herself. She will get there.

My oldest is a super social kid that can make friends with a brick wall.  She was also so worried about this stuff.  You're going to become a pro at making gluten-free pizza for parties...and gluten-free cupcakes.  Michael's has an awesome cupcake decorating class so they look fancy like a pro shop. :)

 

Sorry about the possible DX, though.  Those first months suck!  Come hang with us in the parent forum.  You'll get a lot of BTDT advice.
