I Have Alot Of Questions

16 May 2006 - 01:21 AM

Hi all,
I have a few questions that if anyone could help me answer them itd really help
1 - When looking for gluten free food what ingredients do you look for on the label things like maize, cornflour n starch ect (plus the multitude of other ingredients around ) are confusing.
2 - does chocolate have gluten?? i found muslei bars that have gluten free writen on the box but theryre chocolate coated (i thought chocolate contained gluten)
3 - are other food intolerances/allergies common in kids with celiac? (today my son had a red rash round his mouth which appeared n disappeared very quickly) i know you can do allergy tests but can you test for food intolerance? is it worth doing the tests?
4 - my youngest (10weeks) is lactose intolerant and has ecexma (spell check!) at what age can/should i have him allergy tested as i want to know what to be careful to exclude from his diet, ive heard the more strict you are at keeping certain foods out of there diet it will lesson the chance of them developing the allergy when there older and or helping them grow out of it

i short (or long!) im struggling to figure out what to do for my boys, its not helping waiting for a ped appointment (its been a month and could still be another couple months) i cant take michael of gluten or oliver off his particular formula unitl i see them so im looking at a couple hundred dollars to get them seen privately (near on impossible being a single mum) so excuse my vent but if anyone can help on one or all questions id be very grateful
thanks

Newly Diagnosed Son Advice Please

19 April 2006 - 07:57 PM

hi all, my names kate im 21, live in New Zealand and am a single mum of three kids aged 3 1/2 2 1/2 and 7 weeks my middle son has recieved his blood tests back as very high and were of to a paediatrician when the referal goes thru. I have no real idea where to start and i dont know anyone going thru this that i can talk to. Also being single i have no one to vent to when i get worried or stressed over this. Also my youngest has just been dx with lactose intolerance and excema (how you spell that escapes me right now!!) along with some reflux which makes me think hell more than likely go down the same track. Because of the lactose intolerance were trying to restart our breastfeeding which i hadnt done since he was 8-9 days old but im not sure what ill should leave out of my diet? Does anyone have older children without celiacs, do they follow the gluten free diet to? I hope this makes sense as my head has stopped spinning since i found out. Hope someone more experienced has some advice. Thanks very much
