  1. Hi my son is in grade 7 and it is time for them to get there hepatitis shots. A form came home that said it may contain wheat. Has anyone else recivied their shots and did you reacted to them. I want him to have the needle to protect him, but not if it's going to cause him pain. Is a day or 2 of pain wearth him being protected..
  2. Thank you for your input, I new it couldn't be right.
  3. Hi I was speaking to a Holistic Nutriionists today and told her about my son having Celiac. She was very excited to tell me about this BIE treatment. It sounds hokey to me. Does anyone know anything about this. It's hard to believe all you have to do is have accupuncter and you wil be able to eat wheat and not have any issues.
  4. My son complains that the gluten-free foods are not filling and is always hungry. What can I give him so he feels full, is he missing something in his diet that he needs. He is a very picky eater as-well. Any suggestions would be helpful.
  5. Hi Victoria5 I found your info very helpful. Thank you for writing all this info. My son doesn't have anger problems but he has told me his brain is in a fog, and his bones hurt. I have a better insight to what he is going through. Thank you
  6. Hi Star Ski It is hard at first,but believe me it gets easier. My son (age 11) has been on his diet for just over 3 months. I agree with not buying rice bread, my son will not eat it. But the white bread in the freezer section is much better. He also really likes corn pasta instead of the rice pasta. I buy plain muffin mix and add my own things to it, like chocolate chips or fruit. I'm not big on baking so the packaged mixes or good, there is a lemon cake and brownie mix that my son really likes as well. Hope this helps
  7. You should be very proud of your son. That was great.
  8. My son has been on his new diet for a few months now, and I am still noticing his health improving. The other day it occurred to me I wasn't buying boxes of tissue on the grocery order like I use to. My son has always had a runny noise, and now he doesn't. His now diet is working great.
  9. There is so much to think about. I have been researching this for 2 months and every time I think I have a handle on things I read something that send me back reading labels again. It can be overwhelming at times. I read that you need to check your bathroom for gluten because it can be in your toothpaste and other things. Who would have thought. I do appreciate your your help.
  10. Thank you for your comments. I have to work harder to make sure he has a yogourt every day the doctor did say he should eat it every day. I just started giving him vitamins a week ago, hopefully that will help.
  11. Hi my son has been on a gluten free diet for 2 months. He has not been properly tested, the doctor has said I can do my own test by putting him on this diet, if he stops having all the pain he has celiac. He has no more pain and his gas has dropped by 80%. Looking back at things I would say he has had this since he was put on food when he was a baby. He is 10 years old now. I thought he was very colicky as a young child since you can have it up until your 5 or 6 years old. He has never been a really healthy child, but since he has been on the diet he has had to very bad colds. My question is, is he going through a lot of changes in his system which is lowering his immune system? I thought he should be getting healthier.
