  1. My 8 yr old dd was diagnosed with celiac about 5 months ago. She has seemed to be handling the diet quite well. Yesterday she came home from school crying, saying that she doesn't want to eat her lunch at school anymore. She said it is too hard to watch everyone eat stuff that she can't have. Today I was at home so I brought her home for lunch, but on days I'm working this won't be an option.Any sugestions on how to help her deal with this, as she will have to be around people eatting gluten her whole life.
  2. My 8 yr old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac 5 months ago, and she seemed to be doing okay with the diet. Recently she has been having trouble falling asleep at night and says that she can't stop thinking about all the food with gluten in it, and it makes her upset. I was also diagnosed with celiac right after her and can understand how she feels. I was just wondering if anyones children have gone through this and any sugestions on how I can help her deal with it.
  3. I have been gluten free for just over 2 months now and I am having the exact same pains under my ribs, mine is mainly on right side. My doctor thinks it may be gall stones. I am having an ultrasound done on Thurs. so I guess we will see. Seems odd to me that these pains started after I went gluten free. Anyone else with similar pains??
