Hi, I'am not sure if my other lettter I typed went anywhere so here's another....

We have a 17 year old son who has the "C" disease and has had it all his life just found out 2 years ago why he was so sick as a little guy...when he was a baby he suffered severe hives and belly aches at first they told us it was food allergies then it was just someting that didn't agree with him.....well to make a long story short he was allergic to "LIFE" he has gotten a little better since he knows wht to eat and wht not to eat....but a year ago he tried to work at McDonalds and after not being to already eat their food didn't realize cooking it coould cause problems too, but he started having dizzy spells and passing out at work so he figured hey maybe it is getting in my skin (for those not knowing McD's uses gluten to cook with) so he quit and the passing out subsided unless he has a gluten attack from eating something he should have.....it is hard to be a teenager and not be able to eat pizza or a burger with the guys. So he now tries very hard to stick to his diet as close as he can...we also have 2 other son's one who constantly goes to the R room but he deals with it, the oldest has had several break outs which they said r chicken pox for the 3rd time (if i can i would like to show u wht he looked like when I figure out how to use site) but know we r going threw alot of testing cuz hubby and I both even tho we try very hard not to eat gluten there is HIDDEN gluten everywhere....SO everyone let me know wht u have to say and i will let know if i figure this out lol> One ? is does any one have the blisters on their feet? Thnx Bea

Well, fortunately I have not had the DH rash that goes with the celiac, but I have had all of those other issues you listed. One thing I wanted to suggest is for him to have his thyroid checked out. I was almost passing out as well and my heart rate would soar and pound. Turns out this autoimmune disorder of Celiac can cause problems with other systems as well. Thyroid is a common organ to be attacked by celiac.
