  1. We haven't tried Rosie's products but whe comes to the Farmer's Market in Moncton every Saturday. Apparently her pizza is good.
  2. Amy My son started with liquid bm at about 3 weeks - the symptoms of anemia and weight loss / failure to gain started after he started cereal. I breastfeed for 13 months but was not gluten-free. He was diagnosed via a biopsy. I'm glad he was diagnosed this way because the diet is strict and I wanted to be sure before adhering to it for life. Trixie
  3. My 16 month old son has celiac and severe asthma. Has anyone else experienced asthma in relation with celiac? Trixie
  4. Hi my youngest son was diagnosed at 14 months (two months ago) with celiac via a biopsy. I had blood work done (Igg TTg something like that) on my older children. One had two negatives and the other one positive and one negative result. Has anyone had any experience with this. I have a call in to the GI dr. and our family doctor is supposed to contact him as well. I suspect they'll do a biopsy. What are the chances it will be positive? Any experiences? My youngest had classic symptoms but not this child. She has had problems with constipation but not major.?! Thanks, Trixie
  5. My son was diagnosed at 14 months with negative blood tests at 6 months and a positive endoscoy at 13 months. He had classic symptoms of celiac - chronic diarrhea, irritability, anemia, reflux, etc. Trixie
  6. Hi there My son was diagnosed at 13 months with celiac disease through a biospy. He is also being treated for reflux (Zantac and Prevacid) and severe asthma (Flovent, Serevent and Ventolin). Apparently the reflux is related to the stomach pain etc. of celiac. We've been following the diet for six weeks - and it isn't too bad. It hasn't taken too long to get used to for the most part - and after 4 weeks or so we started to see changes with the bm and that makes to effort worthwhile. I think it is much easier to start at a young age rather than aquiring a taste for gluten and having to start later. We are Canadian and I have found the site www.celiac.ca helpful. Trixie
  7. Since beginning gluten-free diet with my 14 month old 4 weeks ago - I have noticed he is drinking a lot more than usual. Probably twice as much? Has anyone else noticed this happening? Just a few days ago - I noticed a change in his bm - the first formed stools that weren't completely undigested food since birth really. It is encouraging to see a change in this area - it makes following the diet a bit easier :-) So anyone esle noticed the thirsty thing?? Thanks T
  8. My son is 14 months and has been diagnosed with celiac disease for a month. I breast feed until he was 12 months old - but he had symptoms from birth - with bm etc.(I ate gluten never thinking.) It was only at about 8 months that he started dropping in the weight chart - he is just below the 10% now - down from about 75%. Trixie
  9. HI My 14 month old son was diagnosed with celiac disease and has been gluten-free for three weeks. The diet hasn't been too bad - I am just anxious to see a difference in his health. How long before most of you noticed a difference in your children? We aren't dairy free but I've contacted the dr. about trying that until things heal. Also, have any of you had experience with your child having other health problems? Are they related to the celiac disease? My son has had several severe pneumonias, reflux, anemia (Obviously related), and severe asthma. Trixie
