  2. I just posted for the first time yesterday, my head is still spinnnig form what I have been reading and learning. What foods do you give to your family? Is there a book out there? I want to put all of us the diet, for I too have had these sypmtoms and believe I ahve it also, never been tested though. Is it easy to begin this diet? How hard will it be to change over? What advice can you give me with my son who does not have it? Again I want to change all of our eating habits to this diet will he benefit from it as well? My kids LOVE Mcdonalds what kid doesn't how do you keep them relatively normal and enjoy kid foods without going off the diet? All help will be wonderful thank you in advance. God Bless momandlovingit
  3. Recently we were told that our 5 year old daughter may have Celiac Disease, she was born with severe acid reflux disease that lasted for two years,and since then she has had severe 'tummy aches' and MANY bouts of diaherra daily.(has over 8 bowel movements a day) She has recently had a endoscopy and colonoscopy which the Doctor was optimistic with the results but has not ruled out Celiac or possible Chrons disease. My questions and concerns are as follows; she has ALWAYS been very small her first birthday she only weighed 18pounds, and up till turning 4 she has been very under weight was under 31pounds now all of a sudden she has gained 22 pounds between age 4 and just turned 5 in Feb. I know children go through a growth spurt but is this common? she loves to eat veggies and fruit even turns down candy for them! she hasen't met a food she doesn't like but it seems everything she eats she winds up in the bathroom right after always complaing of her tummy hurting. any help would be great she has just started seeing a specalist for children with digestive disorders but I would like to have all the information I can to be able to ask more direct questions. Thank you for your help. Her mom
