  1. Hi, we are new to this too! My son and I> I dont think you need a formal diagnosis, or an accurate one, I think if you eliminate the gluten, Totally gluten free, and you feel better, Terrific! It is worth a shot. God Bless and good luck:)
  2. Thank you, but the Dr. only tested D and Iron , CBC, Complete metabolic panel, celiac panel, and Thyroid. We were on a light gluten free when testing with blood work. No , he is so afraid to consume Gluten so he is very disciplined about his food choices! Thank God! Have you heard of enterolab? and what are your opinions? it cost alot, but I am interested!
  3. well we have been gluten free for 3 weeks and of a sudden he is home from school again with bad gas pains, gas that burns his anus. He has loose bowel this a.m. and cramps. Celiac blood results were negative. what could be causing this?
  4. help? has anyone experienced this? before going gluten free my gas would just be horrible. sorry;) week gluten free far so good, what could be causing this? food suggestions?
  5. well my sons blood work came back negative, dr said ( dont have exact numbers)his vit. d is low he is 9 we been completely Gluten-Free for a week, and noticed some improvements. we head to ped.gastric dr. Monday. He is so nervous and said Mom i ever want to eat gluten again. he remembers the tummy pain and ER visit.
  6. This is my first week Gluten free as well as my son! His tummy issues have improved since the switch. Is this common to start seeing an improvement, even though it may take the gluten toxicity longer to leave your body? and will we still have some setbacks until we are clear of Gluten for good?
  7. Thank you, i guess i meant, the tuna that I ate was prepared with vegetable broth...didn't realize this was in the can of tuna until after I consumed and noticed some symptoms. I am new to the ingredient list, sorry!
  8. ok.....i recently went gluten free, before that i was very gassy after a meal, and it was a horrible smell and . so far since gluten free it is better! today, i consumed tuna from the can pickle relish,mayo,salt & pepper. the horrible gas is back?????
  9. My 9 year old had his blood drawn today, these are the tests ordered: CBC Comp. Metabolic Panel FREE t4 TSH, ultrasensitive CELIAC Ab Panel Iron Vit. D -25 Hydroxy
  10. Thank you so much, that helps...we are heading to our primary Dr. tomorrow, and I will bring this list of blood work that I would like tested!
  11. My 9 year old son has been having recurring stomach pain for 2-3 months. We have an appt with a GI specialist in one week. this weekend we ended up in the Emergency room, he was pale, severe stomach pain, dehydrated. Dehydrated because everything he eats and drinks was hurting his stomach. Blood test revealed elevated glucose and xray showed lots of gas, no impaction. He has bouts of constipation then loose bowel movements to the point of pain. His symptoms seem aggravated by breads, bagels, cookies and sweets! But just about anything upsets is tummy now. Help!! Does this sound like a celiac or GI? Dr. wants us to avoid gluten for a week? NO test done yet, besides blood work in ER, which was not specific for celiac.
