  1. My husband was diagnosed celiac this summer and only of late my eldest son, aged 2 and a half was also diagnosed. My mother in-law, though refuses to belive and still puts gluten in the food. We were at her house this weekend and my husband got very very tierd and had tummy ache afterwards. We asked her if there was gluten in the food and she said she put in a tiny bit of flour. She didn't think it would hurt, if it was only a bit!! Anyway, I wouln't get frustrated about it, she probably means well she just doesn't understand the damage that a tiny bit of gluten causes. You need to sit with her and try and make her understand that Gluten free is only for the best for yourself and your child and not for nothing!
  2. Hi All, celiac disease was diagnosed in my husband back in August. I have a 2 and a half year old boy who did the blood test (They had to do it in the neck) which came back positive. He also seems to have the celiac disease symptoms: He has a blown up tummy and complains of tummy ache. Since recieving the results of the blood test (which was about 3 weeks ago) he has a loss in appetite (he always had a healthy appetite), blisters on his bum, lacks energy, pale, restless sleeper, night terrors, rage fits, also complains of pain in his legs, feet, head... It seems weird that it all started after the blood test which was traumatic for him. Could it be psychological or is it all related to celiac disease? Thnaks, A worried Mom.
  3. My husband was diagnosed with the celiac disease about 3 months ago. I have two children. My eldest is 2 and a half and has done the blood test which showed up positive. My youngest is 9 months old and I have been giving him cereals with his milk (oats etc. that contains gluten). What should I do? Should I put him also on a gluten free diet or continue giving him the normal cereals? thanks in advance, Esme
