Is cross contamination as much of a concern with casien as it is with gluten?

AWESOME!!!! We so miss chocolate! Do you know if either of those are carried in the grocery store or if they are basically on-line order items.

Thanks so much Michael!

In Topic: Pls Help - Non Typical Symptoms? Mood "disorders"

Oh Maureen, I feel for you! I am going through a very similar instance with my 3 1/2 year old son. Our cases are slightly different in that neither my husband nor I have tested positive (well, we have not been tested at all) for Celiac, but my son has gone through testing and although he did not have the "Celiac" gene, he did have a high positive score for "gluten sensitivity" which the doc termed as "Celiac-like disease". Basically he has to follow the same gluten-free (and casien free - tested positive for dairy intolerance as well) diet in order to stay healthy. He had many of the GI symptoms, and this is what prompted us to do the testing. He's been gluten-free for 4 months and CF for about a month. Heis physical symptoms have all but disappeared and I would consider him very healthy in that respect, however the behavioral issue seemd to have worsen! He is an emotional rollercoaster!!! Happy laughing playing nice with his 5 month old sister and the next he'll breakdown over the tiniest little thing. I'm not sure what to make of it. Is he still getting some hidden gluten or casien or possibly some other food that he's allergic to that does not shoe physical signs, but create behavioral disarray (i.e. soy)? Or is it just a part of being 3 1/2? It does not seemt o be better or worse at any time of the day (I was hoping to make a link between days that he's at daycare or days that he did not get a nap (being over tired)) but to no avail, he's over emotional no matter what the circumstances of his day are. I'm really at a loss as to what to do. My husband and I are hoping that its just a phase and we are going to try to ride it out, but if things don't improve in a couple weeks, we may need to seek some professional help for him. Good luck Maureen. Let us know what you find out about your little girl, and if anyone else has any stories to share that may shed some light on this, please do - and thank you to those who already posted a reply. I learn so much from this board and also get a great deal of comfort in knowing that we're not the only ones out there dealing with this and that it can be overcome.

Getting rid of dairy, in many ways, has been much harder than getting rid of gluten.


I agree completely!
