Thanksgiving Thoughts

As thanksgiving approaches my stress level increases. It is now not only my own diet that I have to worry about but also the diet of my 13 year old daughter. Thanksgiving being such a family oriented and traditional holiday, especially in the realm of food, makes it very difficult to maneuver.

Amazing! You should feel very optimistic! It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!????

Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test). Discuss this with your child's GI. He/She may be able to order for you. Share the CBC results too with him/her. I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to det...
