We Have Growth!

Recommended Posts

River (my daughter) has gone from 44.5 lbs to 46.5 lbs and grown an inch since starting the diet. I know it's just two pounds but now she's 9th percentile in weight! She's clung to the bottom of the growth chart, sometimes falling off of it, since 6 months.

We missed church a couple Sundays in a row and this morning people were like "when did River sprout legs?"

Yes, yes, yes!!


gluten-free May 17, 2007; casein-light since June 2007

Dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant by Enterolab. Family doc dx'ed "gluten sensitive" after dietary response. DQ 6 & DQ 7

8 year old daughter dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant & malabsorption by Enterolab and has been GFCL since June 12, 2007. Excellent response to diet, including growth! Tummyaches & irritability are gone! DQ 5 & DQ 6

Husband has DQ 5 (elementary, my dear Watson!). Self-diagnosed gluten-intolerant by diet response and challenge.

Congratulations on the weight gain and growth!! During the first year and a half my son was gluten free he gained 15 pounds and grew 6 and a half inches. It is so exciting to see them thrive.
