  1. Thanks for the info once again. You know, I had bought him his own peanut butter but totally forgot about the mayo and we had a dipping sauce on Sunday that we used mayo for with his chicken. We bought a separate strainer, pot and cooking utensils for him. I guess I am wondering for silverware, if I run it through the dishwasher, that should be fine, right?
  2. Thanks everyone. I wasn't aware of the gluten withdrawal.
  3. Hello, My son was diagnosed last week with celiac and colitis. It is such a heart breaking thing to go through. Basically he has had diarreah (with blood) for the past month. He is 11 years old, getting ready to start middle school in a matter of weeks. He had a colonoscopy and endoscopy last week with the diagnosis two days later. We have him on a gluten free and dairy free diet and he is also on some medication (lialda) for his colitis. Nothing has changed with his bowel movements. I am just wondering, at least for the celiac part, how long does it take for the body to heal. I am so hoping we can have his bowel movements under better control before he starts middle school. Also, I have 3 other children. Should I have them tested as well?
