New Here, Not Quite Celiac But 2 Yo W/ Class Iv Wheat Allergy

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to introduce myself really quick. My name is Shandelle. I have a very very tiny 2 year old (well she'll be 2 on the 14th) who just hit 20 pounds and 30 inches a couple weeks ago. She's smart as a whip and has an attitude of a 16 year old and she's a blast.

She has spent most of her 2 years sick with something or another. Mostly congestion, ear infections and the like. She got tubes in Oct. 11th and it has made a big difference, but she was still cranky most of the day and still congested so I pushed for a RAST test and low and behold she has a class IV wheat allergy, also a class III egg white allergy as well as a class I peanut and soy.

I know that a wheat allergy isn't the same thing as celiac but there don't seem to be many forums for "wheat allergies" LOL! I hope you don't mind me poking my head in here!

I have some gluten free things on order from amazon for her (including bread mixes, pizza crust, cookies etc.)

If there is something I really should try with her please let me know. I'll probably go gluten free as well so she's not doing it all by herself. I actually thing I may be sensitive as well because it gives me heartburn. But that's not the point!

Anyway, I'm excited to have found this site. I hope you all don't mind me joining!

Hi! I'm glad you're finding answers for your baby!

Our favorites so far are Kinninnick white sandwich bread (tastes kind of like english muffins and you have to eat it toasted or it isn't good), Glutino crackers and pretzels, Pamela's baking mix (for pancakes), Pamela's chocolate cake mix (for cupcakes), and Envirokids cereals and cereal bars.

I started the gluten-free diet with my daughter and that's how I discovered that I also have celiac.

Hi, and welcome!!! I just wanted to say that before my little girl was diagnosed with celiac she was actually misdiagnosed as allergic to wheat... maybe she is allergic as well, but she does have celiac. Anyway, just wanted to say that before we cut out all gluten we weren't nearly as limited!!! If you can do rye, barley and OATS i would take advantage. I have alot of great recipes for things made out of oats (if your interested let me know), make sure if you do oats that you buy gluten free oats. If you havent already you should check out the Sophie safe cookbook. It's free of all the top 8 allergens (which all of your allergens are) and there are some great recipes in there... alot of oats though.

We like all of the 'Enjoy Life' products... they are allergen free, so everything they make is safe for ya'll. We also like Kinnikinnick, i know that their bread isnt egg safe, im not sure anything they make is :( you can check them out at www.kinnikinnick.com HTH!!!
