Glutened My Daughter

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, after two years of being very vigilant, I foolishly gave my 13 year old daughter daughter a couple of bites of my broccoli with cheese sauce (packaged veggies).  Ingredients clearly say wheat flour :(.   She didn't seem to suffer any symptoms, but I'm wondering how badly that will affect her.  Two years of being very careful and her numbers are still really high.  Anybody have any ideas?  I'm feeling really badly about the whole thing.

Accidents happen. We all have them.

 

Is she getting glutened at school? If you have pets, their food can have gluten in it.

Thanks everyone.  She is quite vigilant.  Her numbers have definitely gone down, just still high.  I don't have the details in front of me but the pediatrician when she was in hospital said they were some of the highest numbers she'd seen, and there has been steady improvement.  The pets are gluten free - one has allergies!  The house is not, there are a couple members who simply won't, however, she has her own cookware, cutting boards etc., and all my family cooking is gluten free.  It's baffling.  We'll just soldier on!
