  1. My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with celiac about 6 months ago. We have read a lot of information on diet and also have seen a dietitian. We are trying very hard to follow a gluten-free diet and it seems that she is feeling much better. The problem is the levels in her blood are still quit high. It was initially 130 and after 3 months on "gluten-free" diet it was 115. Now 6 months after starting this diet it is 99. Our doctor told us it should be below 20 very soon after gluten is removed from the diet. We are having a very hard time trying to figure out where the gluten is coming from. I don't believe she is cheating and I feel we are missing something. We are very frustrated and feel as though we are letting her down as her parents. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, David and Patti
