Hi "Mum",

I hope you find a support group in your area. This is the single best "defuser" of that overwhelming feeling when you are first or recently diagnosed. It changed my outlook and has forced me to look outside the box and keep current with the disease, coping strategies and new recipes. The good news is that you are getting your children tested! In the U.S. the lag time is about 15 yrs. before a correct diagnosis is made and because doctors are not up to speed on the disease, it is very hard to get them to order the blood tests on children unless they are underweight and fall below the growth rate for their age. So don't despair! Life after celiac is not bad - I joke with my grandchild that "We are the "real" people, the others are mutants! He thinks it's funny!!!

Thanks for the welcome. Just realised i didn't put my name there, its Julie :lol: My youngest son, had almost the same symtoms for most of the time i did, and it took me 20 months to get an hospital appointment for him he is 12 years old now, and we have had the gastro camera and endo camera too like i did- they found that he had a 'rare gut allergy' to put it in simple terms. But said there was no evidence of celiac there, however they decided that taking him off all food and giving him drip feed to give his bowel a rest. Then the tube came out and they started him on food again and today at the hospital they have said he can have wheat for next 6 weeks but still no dairy and eggs or milk so that is son 3 background

I have an English dog (a staffy bull) and we both welcome you to the board. Can you tell me, how much in pounds is a "stone". Also, do you ever hear the phrase "bully for you" over there? I know it's a British saying, just don't know how common it is these days. Thanks.

Bully4you,I've had 2 Staffies-I love them,they are so daft.

Brilliant with kids too-sadly my staffies died.

They get a bad press,but they really are great family dogs!

And yes,we still use the saying 'bully for you'!!

Great picture of your dog :)
