Mary B

Daughter And Symptoms...

Recommended Posts

:( I was just diagnosed with celiac disease - saw the nutritionist today. Anyway, we are awaiting the blood screening on my 11-year-old daughter. I am seriously wondering if she has celiac too. She has always had a funny tummy - lots of spitting up as a baby. She also will sometimes vomit after a meal - no real reason; she's certainly not sick.

Anyway, here are other concerns we have with her... acne (pretty severe for one so young; nothing works on it), mood problems (we're talking severe), ADHD-like symptoms, unexplained hives/rashes, asthma, allergies, nosebleeds... That's just what I can think of right now.

Has anyone else seen anything like this in their children or themselves? Thanks!

Sounds like classis gluten responses to me. For me, my acne only goes away if I stay away from dairy. They say acne isn't caused by food, but staying away from dairy has been a miracle for my skin. I also use Toms of Maine soap and even though I have dry skin, it doesn't irritate it. Good luck!

Sure have, myself and both my kids. I would give her a good try on the diet no matter what the testing reveals. You may find yourself with a completely different kid in a relatively short time.
