I Hope It's Ok To Brag A Little Bit

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I hope it's ok to brag and not ask a question. I'm one proud momma and other parents of kids without celiac don't understand. My son was diagnosed 5 weeks ago by biopsy. We have been gluten free for 4 weeks and 3 days. In that time he has gained 4 lbs - he had not gained a pound in a year and a half prior to this. He has also grown 1 full inch in ONE MONTH. I'm beyond thrilled. He has not had a tummy ache in 3.5 weeks. I just want to cry because I'm so happy. He has moved from the 20 percentile for both weight and height to the 50 percentile in one month. I'm so happy my child is now a typical 4 yr old. He runs and plays all day and he's not a TV junkie any more. He never asks to watch TV. Yesterday he went swimming TWICE!!!!! Thanks for all the support and tips on this site. I know I'm not alone in all this.

Weird. I posted a few minutes ago but it did not show up.

Anyway, you have every right to inspire us with your story and be proud of your precious son. I would say this is nothing short of miraculous! :)

Congratulations...well done...keep up the great work :)

:D REJOICING WITH YOU!!!!!!!

My 3 year old has grown one inch per month since going gluten free. Her tests were "inconclusive" but we got our "diagnosis" with her THRIVING for the first time in her life. I cried when I found out how much she had grown and gained. SOO amazing isn't it.
