My latest gluten free achievement was a chocolate molten lava cake served on a dab of Mrs. Richardson's caramel.  YUM!

In Topic: Relapse Of Symptoms

You didn't specify the Celiac symptoms that have returned.


That being said...  My daughter was diagnosed and started on a gluten free diet when she was about 16 months old.  When she turned 6 in October her "Celiac " symptoms returned (but worse)

vomiting (this was getting worse and worse by the day up to 5 times a day) she was admitted to the hospital for dehydration, she also vomited blood and diagnosed with a virus

weight loss (no height growth either)

constipation and "D" cycles

dark circles

tired (exhausted really)

her hair started falling out


I went through everything thinking she was getting gluten.  (she was hospitalized for dehydration at least once a year, because when she started puking she just couldn't stop)

We had to go back to the pediatric gastroenterologist.  The way to diagnoses was an endoscopy with biopsy as these symptoms are common for a number of disorders/disease.  {H. Ployri. infection, parasitic infection, congenital defect, hernia, EE, and the list goes on}  She was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitus when she was 6. 


There is now a known connection between Celiac and EE


Go back to the ped. gastro. for an endoscopy ASAP.  do NOT change the diet (possibly removing the trigger and never getting a proper diagnoses) and there is a possibility the "trigger" is a seasonal allergy (as most cases are diagnosed at the end of summer/ early fall flare up of symptoms)


Good luck with testing and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask.

I would use some of this time adjusting to some gluten free baking. (bake and freeze in serving size portions ~ cause teenage boys are eating machines! :o)   Finding out favorite brands of gluten free products.  Pamela's, Glutino, Udi's


It does seem like a waste of time but it can be so important to have "official diagnoses" of Celiac and rule out any other disorder/ disease that can coexist.


I would expect a growth spurt because of his age and when he is gluten free and fully nourished. :D

The next best suspect, EGGS! Gluten free baked goods depend on eggs for texture, and some have more eggs than a gluten counter part.   The top 8 allergens made the top of the list for a reason.  They are the most complex protein chains for the digestive system to break down.


Peas are also high on the reactive list and Kinnicknik products use pea starch for texture.


Keep a food journal and be prepared to do an elimination diet.
