  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. linda, thanks very much for that you have been a great help. take care mark
  3. again, i am far from an expert but have learnt alot in the last 3 months. my daughter seems to have gone through a similar set of circumstances as you have already mentioned. she was diagnosed some 3 months ago with celiac disease and in the last three weeks we have spent another week in hospital. the reason all stems around her being milk intolerant also so she is on a milk free and gluten free diet. The doctor over here has also placed her on a soya free diet for good measure in order to give her a few months of a balance diet where her immune system and intestines can grow again. So in a nut shell, she is on a gluten, milk and soya free diet. the soya will be for about 3 -5 months but the milk for a few years yet. she has really picked up and the change has been incredible, she is running around and putting weight on which is a wonderful sight to see. dont know if that would have been of any help, but i am learning myself at present. mark wootton Nottinghamshire England
  4. i am told from the professor in england that carried out the biopsi on my daugther that you should still be eating gluten containing food right up to the biopsi. he says that is because your bod will gradually heal and the Villi will grow back and give a negative result, meaning that your blood will say one thing but the biopsi will say another. dont know whether that helps and hope that everything goes well for you. mark wootton England
  5. Hello all, I initially posted this on the main forum by mistake, this is where I think it should be. I have found this site and it is far better organised than the one we have over here in England. My daughter 19 months (Molly) was diagnosed some 3 months ago with Coeliacs, but was only diagnosed as Milk and Soya intolerant in the last couple of weeks after a few more weeks in hospital. Molly when she was 17 months old weighed less than when she was 9 months old. Thanksfully the change has been almost instant, she is more bubbly and outgoing now and less tired. I have seen on your site links to the t-shirts etc which we cannot get in England and also a list of contacts. Does anyone know of a distributor who can supply the t-shirts to England as I only want a couple for my wife, Daugther and myself. Does anyone have any help or advice they can offer at this stage for us. Particularly with cross-contamination issues as we are ever learning about this issue and do not know what degree to that this to. thanks for your anticipated help. Great site and forum.
