Adalaide, sounds like we need to get together over a few gluten-free glasses of wine and swap MIL stories :D 

 

My guess is we could both end up drunk in an hour. :lol: We'd probably both cry, and laugh til we cry.

 

Just keep telling yourself "it's child abuse for him to make his own PB&J!!!" every time he does it and try not to crack up like a crazy woman. :P

All I am suggesting is that you keep an open mind about this before shutting it down. Have you researched this before you said it wasn't true? Have you tried eating corn, dairy, and yeast in one meal and documented any changes in how you feel? There are numerous sources of this information, not just from Dr.Clark. I am open minded to the fact that it isn't true, but let's make sure that it isn't before we shut it out. I am going to the gastroenterologist this week and will ask him. Here is another source of infor with the same thing. I will just keep finding more sources for you. There are foods that are cross confused with gluten. Here is a list of foods that can be confused:

 

http://www.examiner.com/article/gluten-associated-cross-reactive-foods

 

What IH and Karen have been pointing out is that there is irrefutable, scientific evidence that cross-reactivity simple does not exist. If every expert in the field who has published peer reviewed studies says so, and the experts speaking at an international symposium on celiac says so it removes all doubt. There is no reason left to keep an open mind.

 

Something I'd like to suggest you keep in mind when you look for information on the internet. When finding information, find out if the person you are getting it from is an actual doctor with a medical degree or only calls themselves doctor. Find out if they are an actual doctor if they have published peer reviewed studies, if they don't publish their studies for peer review that means they are possibly afraid that experts will refute the evidence. Find out if the person is selling anything. Everyone selling something will always put forth information in support of what they are selling, this information is rarely trustworthy unless it can be found available from a second reputable (medical) source. Some sites will have a lot of information and be selling something but will list sources for their information at the bottom of their site, much like a research paper you wrote in school. Dig a little, find out who they are sourcing, are those sources reputable?

 

What I'm saying is, just because someone calls themselves a doctor doesn't make them one and doesn't make them trustworthy. Look into things and find accurate information. It is quite possible that yeast can make you sick, but that is because you are reacting to the yeast and nothing else. Cross-reactivity is simply a made up thing by someone trying to make a quick buck to scam people.

My 20 yr old son still tries that on me! It didn't work at 6 is isn't working at 20! And they helped with their laundry - one started at 4 & the other at 2 and were completely doing their own laundry by 10/11. How did Child protective Services let this happen?

My mom did that to me!!! By the time I was old enough to undress myself I was expected to be able to put my clothes in a small basket and drag it down the hall to the washer on laundry day. I also had to go outside with her and hand her pieces of laundry, one at a time to hang on the line. She was positively evil!

 

Oh... and by the time I was 2 I was helping to bake. I had my own little Tupperware baking set. (Does anyone remember those?) And when my mother or grammy were baking I got dough to play with and mine got baked too. I was always so proud of myself. Yes, positively abusive to teach kids self-sufficiency. :lol:

At 2 I could make my own toast.  At 3 I made scrambled eggs.  By 8 I was making my own frosting roses for the cakes that I baked.  At 12, my mom turned the cooking over to me.

Yeah, now it sounds like I'm abusing him because I haven't taught him more cooking skills than the pb&j.  You guys don't call CPS on me, please.  Or would that be GPS - Gluten Protective Services :)

When I came back negative to everything on allergy skin tests my doctor commented that it just shows you how useless allergy testing is because you are clearly allergic to almost everything lol :). Immunoligsts almost think Allergists is not a real profession it's so dodgy.

I have seen a variety of specialists over the years.  Each one will tell you that they are right and the others are wrong.  At least that has been my experience.

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
