Severe Allergies + Celiac = What To Eat?

5 posts in this topic

My daughter is two and she has diary, egg and peanut allergies. She suffers from possible anaphalaxsis (spell?) with peanut. AND she is soy intolerant. Now she just had blood work done and has Celiac Disease. She goes for a biopsy next week to find out for sure. My question is are there any yummy recipes out there for my poor little girl. My dinner recipes are getting between slim and none. And slim left town as of Tuesday. <_<

Hey,

I thought of you when I got Clan Thompson's newsletter. There is a new book coming out:

Hi,

my son is also off dairy and soy and can only have egg yolk not the whites, so I really know where you're coming from and can relate to the desire to be able to give your child treats that won't be harmful.

What about tree nuts for your daughter? Can she have almonds, for example? If yes, then I have a couple of nice (not absolutely fabulous, but good) gluten/dairy/egg/soy (and peanut) free recipes I could post that I have been using for my toddler.

Best,

Kaylee

browsing around, i saw that your daughter cannot in fact have almonds.

I have a good gluten/dairy/egg/soy/peanut free recipe for waffles which I can post later. I had never made a waffle in my life until we discovered celiac and I realized I was going to have to change a lot of my assumptions about eating. So, one thing I did was to purchase a waffle iron and I've been making them once a week for breakfast. They're kind of special and my son immediately points and calls out "waffles!" (or, a toddler rendition of that that sounds more like "wall!") when he sees me getting ready to make them.

Best,

Kaylee

So, here is the waffle recipe I am using. It's a recipe I found I cannot remember where that I changed around. It was originally based on amaranth flour, which I have never actually used. Point being, you could obviously transform it further to suit your needs and tastes. It could undoubtedly be used for pancakes, too (maybe adding more liquid).

Waffles (gluten/dairy/egg/soy/nut free)

Ingredients

1/2 cup brown (or white or half and half) rice flour

1/4 cup buckwheat flour

1/4 cup glutinous rice flour

1/3 cup arrowroot powder

1/4 cup brown sugar

4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp or so flax meal (optional, but nice if you like that sort of thing - I add flax to

everything now)

3/4 cup liquid (I use a mix of water and apple juice. Pear juice is supposed to

be easily digestible I think and white grape juice was suggested in a

previous post. Plain water would be fine of course but would take

away from the crispy sweetness of the waffles I expect)

4 tsp oil

Mix dry ingredients well then add in water mixed with oil. Combine ingredients but don't overstir. Pour onto hot waffle maker. These take a bit longer to make than traditional waffles - probably a few extra minutes. Try not to peek before they're done. Wait until the steam stops pouring out. You'll have a better sense of how long they need the second time round. Serve with jam, honey, maple syrup or nothing at all (the juice gives great flavour)

Leftovers can be frozen, briefly microwaved, then toasted.

Note: I know some are wary about buckwheat flour, but my son who has severe reactions to gluten has never had a problem with it. The buckwheat flour could just be replaced by more rice flour, or some other kind for added interest.

Hope this is of use to you,

Kaylee

    • What would be helpful, Victoria, is to have a full thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose anyone with Hashi's without a full panel.  It is more important to see what the actual hormone levels are than the TSH. Those would be Free T3 and T4.  You can have low hormone levels and normal TSH.  Your TSH is not too bad but if it starts to climb any higher, that would be cause for concern for Hashi's.  At least your lab seems to use the newer ranges for testing.  Many labs use outdated ranges that go to 5.00 for a cutoff. When my TSH was a 7, I could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have Hashi's and your symptoms are a laundry list for it and Hashi's is very common with Celiac Disease.  You can start having Hashi's symptoms long before the blood work goes off.......like Celiac.
    • With the 3 positives that you have, Jenna, you have Celiac Disease. Positive tTg and EMA is a slam dunk. At this point, if you do the biopsy, you don't need it for diagnosis.  It will be to check for extent of damage.  Considering your health issues, it's pretty apparent you have a gluten problem anyway. Congratulations on figuring out your problem.  Now you can sit back and watch how amazing it will be when many of your problems resolve or improve dramatically. I had the same positives you did and declined the biopsy. 3 years after I was diagnosed, all my symptoms were gone but I do have other AI issues which are not, but they are much, much better just from going gluten free.  Be optimistic this will happen for you also!
    • I'm not sure what you mean by score, but her testing at the Mayo Clinic looks like what they describe in the Mayo Clinic link I included.  The posted results are in reverse order of the actual testing. Testing started with total IgA (for some strange reason labeled "Celiac disease, cascade" and does not include units).  It was within the normal range listed in the Mayo link under "Reference Testing" so testing continued with TTG IgA.  Jenna3, the total IgA is to ensure that the results of the rest of the IgA  tests are valid.  It is looking at total IgA antibody, not celiac antibodies. TTG IgA was a weak positive so testing continued with EMA IgA and Gliadin IgA which per the Mayo website is the deamidated gliadin peptides.  It looks like there should be an EMA titer reported. Hope this helps.
    • I second the request for a falafel recipe!
    • So I was googling my symptoms I still have after being gluten-free for 9 years and came up with Hashi's.   symptoms chronic c, even with extra magnesium citrate feeling tired all the time, despite using cpap for sleep apnea very succesfully  muscle weakness and joint stiffness, my lower back hurts so bad every day Hair loss memory lapses (getting worse) Dry skin im freaking cold all the time. Ac is killing me this summer.  High cholesterol, the bad one (been bad my whole life) Depression and low motivation to do lots of simple life tasks tendency towards anemia (my annual physical didn't check so I don't know current value) my TSH is 2.590 uIU/mL    0.600-3.300 uIU/mL   Is there anything I can do at home to help these things? Should I share this with my doctor? I have a new one who doesn't know me well at all. What do I say? thanks for any advice and feel free to ask questions!
