My son & husband were just diagnosed with Celiacs a few weeks ago. I'm reading & learning but having to do so in a hurry... I'm pregnant and due in a week. I have no energy & need to send loved ones to the stores for me. I just have a few questions that I was hoping someone could help me with. I'm great at doing research but I'm sure you know... LOTS to do at once.

*Which brands of ice creams are gluten free?

*What about juices? I'm trying to think of quick things I can let me son grab out of the cupboard- capri suns, boxed juice?

*I read that Coke was gluten free. What about pepsi?

And also, I need to watch out for things that say "natural flavor", correct?

Thanks for any quick, easy help you can offer right now. I just want to have him ready for when I go into the hospital.

Oh... and I should add... we are a SUPER healthy family, so don't let my juice, coke & ice cream scare you. ;-)

For juice boxes we go with Capri Sun. They are owned by Kraft who labels all hidden gluten. I always call to double check - it makes me feel better. And they confirmed Capri Sun was gluten-free. Also there is Juicy Juice, Apple & Eve, and Welches brand juices are gluten-free.

Ice Cream - we go with Edy's. Their website lists ice cream by flavors with ingredients and whether or not gluten is present - which is only like in the flavors with cookies and obvious stuff like that.

Coke and Pepsi products are gluten-free.

I hope that helps out some.

Ice cream is usually clearly labled if it contains wheat or not. Sometimes I send my husband to the store with a cell phone and have him read the ingrediants to me over the phone if he is unsure. Good luck!

To the OP, Congrats on your baby! I may be totally out of line saying this, so feel free to shut me up, I was just wondering if you were going to keep the baby gluten free also since your husband and son have celiacs. Since you are so new to this, you may not be aware of all the research pointing autism to be linked with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Im pregnant also and have celiacs, and have been doing a lot of research on autistic kids linked with undiagnosed celiacs being on gluten filled formula's and food when they were infants. Again, Im sorry if I am out of line, I just wanted to pass along some information from one pregnant mom to another.

Thank you :) and NO, you're not out of line. I plan on nursing this baby (as I did my son for 2.5 years) & I plan on being gluten free, as well. Our whole house is gluten free right now & I plan on it staying that way. I have no intentions on giving this newborn any gluten. I did read however, that at 1 year old we should give the baby gluten for 6 months and then test to see if he has it as well. Have you heard of this?

I have heard on testing children, but from what I heard you are supposed to test around age 3. Autism usually shows up between ages one and three, so personally, I would like to wait until he/she is past the "danger" zone. We have four children in our close extended family with autism and three of those kids have been diagnosed as celiac's in the last year- the third has not been tested but does have serious gastointestinal issues, so I am betting she is a celiac also. As with most autistic children, they were fine and right on mark with age appropriate cognative growth and between ages one and three, they all regressed. So personally, I will definitly not be testing until the baby turns three when the period of rapid brain growth and development has slightly slowed. Im going to be crazy strict (or maybe just crazy :D lol).

    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
    Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
