In Topic: Advice About 12 Year Old

My daughter knows she feels better when she is gluten-free/CF. I think she is pretty compliant most of the time. Her behaviour is just so extreme when she isn't or when there is a mistake. I've been taking the approach that if we could get all the gluten out of her diet, we wouldn't have these issues, but I am realizing that we are not going to be able to get it all completely out. Even if she eats only what I make, I will end up making a mistake at some point. She has to learn how to handle her anger even when she has a diet mistake.

I did take her back to her therapist and she said her behaviour is typical of teenagers. :o

I agree that I do need to stop trying to tie everything to a food mistake and focus more on handling the emotions.

It helps knowing others are going through this, too.

I really don't want to put her on meds. I was having a weak moment. :ph34r:

Rice Guy, I agree with you about the meds and the doctors. My other daughter has Lyme Disease and that is a real eye opener to the limitations of the mainstream doctors. I worry about the effects of the drugs making things worse. But I also worry about what could happen if she's out of control whether it is from gluten or bipolar.

I was able to get her into her old therapist today who said what I'm seeing now is pretty typical teen stuff. I'm a little skeptical that it is totally within the normal range but we'll try what she says and see how things go.

I think I'm leaning towards home schooling to see if meds are really needed if the situation continues.

Ursula, I agree with the ODD dx not really meaning anything. I think it is a symptom more than the real problem.

It is difficult to feel that you can't really trust a doctor.

I discovered my gluten intolerance after my other daughter was dx'ed by Enterolab. I had been taking an a/d and when I went gluten-free, I didn't need it any more. Now, when I have even a trace of gluten, I feel extremely moody. I never felt that bad before. That is what makes me think it might be gluten for my daughter. She was also dx'ed by Enterolab and since she's been on the diet, I've noticed traces of it will bring out the worst in her, too.

I think we would get along fine if I homeschooled and she was completely off the gluten and casein, it that is the only problem she has. That is the real question, I guess.

I have my hair professionally colored with Wella products. I called and they are gluten free but they can't guarantee they are free from cc because they don't know what was bottled right before their products.

My whole family has done the testing and the results seem accurate to me. Most of our doctors think it isn't credible but they don't really need to believe it. They do honor my requests for gluten free meds. I can't think of any other way I need them to believe in it.
