Welcome to the forum! As overwhelming as a Celiac diagnosis is....I know I couldn't have made it through the first year without the support and knowledge of the posters here. Just take it a step at a time and before you know it...this will all be second nature to you.

As far as yeast goes....most baking yeast is gluten-free (like the Red Star brand). Nutritional yeast is also usually okay. Where things get tricky is with brewer's yeast. THAT may not be gluten-free. But as that's a supplement...you shouldn't have to worry much on that score.

Keep in mind that people with Celiac often have multiple sensitivities occurring. Yeast (baking) happens to be a common one. If your son should be sensitive, it isn't because of gluten, but because he has a separate sensitivity. It's something to watch for as it's important to recognize a gluten reaction vs. a reaction from another sensitivity.

Keep a food journal. Your son may have other food sensitivities and it could help pinpoint any gluten mistakes in products.

Detail the food intake & time

Do a mood check, any symptoms

next keep track of BM or vomitting

Now you need to keep a gluten fre snack and treat bag. You are going to realize how much kids are rewarded with treats. i.e. a sucker at the bank or a cookie sample at the store. Make sure your child feels like he's not being punished for having Celiac, because there are plenty of good gluten free foods to eat.

I don't suggest running out and buying all gluten free specialty food replacements like pizza at first because it does take some time for taste to adjust. Check out some of the past posts for some favorite gluten free products or you could waste your money on some pretty yucky stuff.

This site can get you through the early learning days.

Since it is summer, that means it smores at the campfire time, use to gluten-free chocolate chip cookies in place of the graham crackers. I still haven't found a reasonable taste and price replacement for graham crackers.

I reacted to the Lawry's seasoning salt a couple nights ago. Had to feed the rest of the chicken breast to the dogs :angry: Made the dogs happy though!

Charlotte is 16mths now - 18lb. Failure to thrive, horrendous diarrhoea and low iron. She can be rather irritable but it`s very hard to know with such a young child if there is pain and where it is.

I just don`t know. Maybe I`m barking up the wrong tree completely!!?? Been gluten free for 3 days now but not sure how soon we`ll notice any change (if any)

My daughter was diagnosed when she was 17 months old. She is 6 now.

Symptoms sound the same. Just remember that little tummy is damaged pretty bad and try and keep to a gentle on the tummy diet foods. I remember one thing that was suggested was avacados. She wouldn't eat them, still won't eat 'em.

This is HUGE advice. Get your gluten free snacks and treats and keep them on hand at all times.

Lex was very irritable and screamed in pain all the time. Her symptoms are the same as Lex. We noticed a change about 4 days

Yeah - it`s the treats and snacks that she`s looking for. I`ll have to stock up cos my other 2 daughters are getting treats and Charlotte`s are so limited. Thanks

Why Lowry's. We have been using it! I do not see anything in the ingrediants. Am I missing someting. My son is having lots of pain. We are so new to this. I hate that I may be causing him to hurt worse.
