  1. I forgot to add that her blood tests did not show any major allergy reactions. Very low end of the positive scale for a few things...but not wheat or dairy...one for peanuts, and I don' t remember the rest. Lynn
  2. What made me think wheat is that my son is autistic and we went Gluten-free Casein-free when he was 3 for about 8 months. I also have a number of friends with celiac--one has a daughter that is both celiac and diabetic. I will certainly consider all you've suggested. She has been drinking milk and eating lots of cheese during this time, so I'm less inclined to dairy as a source. My son has a raging dairy intolerance that seems to be offset by the use of digestive enzymes. Brought him out of that major disconnect that is typically autism... The blood work didn't show elevated anything as best I can tell, or at least that's what her pediatician said. But he was also concerned that the pains she was experiencing ceased when we pulled the wheat out. Since then she is subsisting on cheese and meats and fruit and milk. And gluten-free type breads. But I'm not looking forward to this future, and am hoping we find something else. I'm going to try to reintroduce it before we go to the other doctor and let her try it out on a regular basis. Thanks for giving me some insight. Lynn
  3. Hi all! I've been reading what you all have said, and my daughter suddenly about a month ago started complaining about stomach aches daily. No vomiting or diarrhea but she said she felt like she was going to vomit. We took off gluten for about 4 days and the aches cleared up, then we were thinking, nah, that's not it and she went back on gluten for three days (pizza, mac and cheese, etc.) and by that weekend, she was doubled over. I read that you're supposed to stay on gluten, but the blood test we did was after she had been off for a week or so. Could that cause it to be negative? Cause the blood panel came back all negative for celiac. Our dr referred us to a ped GI but since that time she's been off wheat and doesn't want to go back on because we both think that's the problem. Should we keep a small amount going in and manage the pain (small pain with small input) until we get all the tests done? Does this come on so suddenly at 8 years of age? Why? Thanks so much for all your wisdom... Lynn
