Fantastic News!

Recommended Posts

Just got the results of my Daughters blood work for Celiac Disease. She was dx'd 1 year ago this month, complete with

positive biopsy. Well now, 1 year later, her count is now completely normal -- YIPPPEEE SKIPPPY! She did it -- we did it.

She was really happy when we told her the great news how proud we were of her results, that we know it hasn't been easy.

And she knows that she still has to keep up the gluten-free diet. I know she feels better -- much happier :D

So if anyone is a struggling parent of a Celiac kid, and you feel overwhelmed, just hang in there.

It's well worth it.


My mom was dx'd Celiac in her 80's after a life time of stomach troubles. I am fine however.

2nd daughter born in 2000

An agitated kid since birth, non-compliant attitude, dx'd with PDDNOS in 2003, ADHD in 2006

Had ongoing facial rash since 2004 -- tested for Lupus -- negative, discovered a high antibody count.

Never complained of stomach ache

Thanks all! I don't know how long she has been "normal", I just thought we'd give it a year

before I re-checked. I use "normal" cautiously, because we all know that this is a lifetime thing,

and I don't want her to ever have a false impression that she's done being gluten-free.

...although some day, there will be a pill for celiacs to take that will allow foods with gluten.

Congratulations to you and your daughter! That's is wonderful!

Sometimes I wish that my daughter's testing wasn't inconclusive so that we could kind of "check" on how she's doing. Oh well.
