  1. Skin Issues

    to all of you that are having itchie problems. my family has a history of VERY DRY skin. to make a long story short, my son who has not been diagnosed yet with celiac disease has the same horrible dry skin and it would almost look like eczema. well, we/he has been gluten-free for about 4 months now and we just deal with the dry skin. the ONLY thing that works for us is pure glycerin. you have to get in the pharmacies and usually have to order it and wait for it to come in. i promise it is worth every penny spent on it. to apply it, take a shower/bath and DO NOT dry off. rub the glycerin on you and pat yourself dry. you will feel a little sticky. but i'll take sticky any day over itchy. hope this helps you all. let me know. i have a place i can get it cheap if anyone is having problems.
  2. Kids Sleep Habits

    carrie4495@hotmail.com i thought i have been losing my mind. Oh my goodness, I am not the only one. I have felt like this horrible mother because my child does not sleep hrough the night. he is 21 mos and i have tried everything to get him to sleep for atleast four hours straight. ha! about 4 mos. ago i took him to a digestive disease specialist in hou, tx. he is wonderful. i found out that he is allergic to dairy, wheat and eggs. he hasn't been diagnostic with celiac disease but it sure sounds familiar. we go back in two months and are probably going to have to have an endoscopy done. once i took him off of all these evils, sleep did get better. for a bit. but now it seems if he gets even a hint of one of them it is worse than before we started this. we have anoher older son who doesn't have any problems with food. my husband is ok with everything. i wonder if i fall in the same lines as avery? we all eat a wheat, egg and dairy free diet at home. i feel better but wonder if i am just used to the side effects of the allergies. does this get better or is it a for life thing? the doctor told me that once his stomach has a chance to heal that he may be able to eat these things again. down the road. this is a relief to know that there are other people who have kids who don't sleep through the night.
