Just wanted to share this. My 12 yr old was diagnosed in May. She had no symptoms but was small stature. She has gained 5lbs and grown 3inches. I purchased rice crackers the other day. She called me at work and told me they were baked at a company where other products were also baked with wheat. ALA cross contamination. She thought we should throw them away and we did. I'm so proud of her. I wasn't so careful I just assumed...rice cracker ...this is ok. I'm lucky she reads labels. :D

That's great! Aren't kids amazing in what they learn and deal with! Sometimes I think kids do a better job than adults with life's little issues!

Tonight at supper, my husband said he was going to binge on Italian bread prior to his next bunch of tests -- first round were equivocal, but it looks like celiac disease -- and my 11 y.o. pats him on the hand

"Dad--don't worry. Just stick with me and I'll show you the ropes"
