This is great link. I am a licensed health facility administrator and there are so many things going on when a patient admits that this will be helpful to nurses. When a patient is able to provide basic helpful information to staff it gets everyone off to a better start. Unfortunately, as we have all experienced, celiac disease is not a disease people are well versed in and we as family members and patients must take control.

Thank you so much for this! My 9 year old was recently in a children's hospital, and he didn't have much to eat at all. We had to let him have dairy for the few days he was there b/c it limited his food choices even more. The dietitian was really helpful, after realizing they basically had nothing for him to eat besides fruit and a few veggies, she had us make a list of his favorite foods, and she went out and bought them. She also interviewed us for ideas for their new menu. This was great, but I was a little shocked that we had to go to such great lengths just to get him a gluten & dairy free meal.

This handout will come in handy....I will have it packed in our hospital bag for next time. Thanks again!
