First off for at least the first 3 months you need to be eating whole foods. Meats, fresh or frozen fruits & veggies but NOT with anything mixed in with them if they're frozen. And NO oatmeal.

This will give you gut time to begin healing while being kind to it & not overloading it. Also, during that time you can read here & learn about all the pitfalls you need to avoid. Like cross contamination (cc) issues etc....

There's a sticky topic at the top of the forum topic (and linked here) with an FAQ (frequently asked questions) about Celiac Disease. It has links to several good articles on this site, including a list of foods to avoid as well as gluten-free foods. Hope that helps!

Hi and welcome to the gluten-free club.

Here is an article on basics of the diet.

www.celiac.com/articles/22060/1/The-Gluten-Free-Diet-101---A-Beginners-Guide-to-Going-Gluten-Free/Page1.html

In the gluten-free shopping section of the article it has links to safe and unsafe ingredients. Feel free to ask more specific questions if something is confusing.

If you want an easy shopping list, all fresh fruit and veggies are safe, eggs, rice, potatoes, plain canned or dried beans, plain meat or fish you cook yourself, and grab a loaf of gluten-free bread if you can find it to have with eggs for breakfast. Udi's or Rudi's brands are really good. :) That will get you started. Season your food with onions, garlic, or plain spices like oregano or basil. No seasoning mixes as some have gluten. I'd suggest you skip dairy for now if you have a lot of tummy trouble - it's gluten-free but most newly diagnosed celiacs find it really hard to digest. Skip processed foods, pre-seasoned meats, canned foods, or things in packages that don't specifically say gluten-free until you are more used to the diet and ready to take on the fine art of label-reading.

Veggies in any combination you like is fine, frozen, fresh, or canned. The problem with frozen or canned is that sometimes they have sauces or seasonings with gluten. Make sure you are getting just plain vegetables.

    • This is really tough.  There is still a lot of research needed in diagnosing (or dismissing) celiac disease.  It shouldn't be months/years of misery and uncertainty. A couple of years ago Dr. Marsh (THE Dr. Marsh of the Marsh biopsy rating system) criticized the US celiac community for not recognizing an increase in IELs as early celiac disease. He asked if these doctors would like to be responsible for the oseoperosis or lymphoma of the undiagnosed patients.  I have also seen that it can take months for antibodies to rise.  There was a paper (2015) that looked at gluten challenges in diagnosed celiac patients.  These are folks with confirmed celiac  and for some it took over 3 months for blood tests to show anything. I hope the strict gluten-free diet works for you. I hope to hear you report back in a couple of months.  I'm undergoing my gluten challenge right now. Week 2. It's just really tough. 
    • My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes.  I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease.  I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in life.  My kids are thriving, they have normal lives, they are smart and have gained knowledge about food that they can carry with them throughout their life.   They really don't let anything stop them from living a normal life.  I think you'll have the upper hand if you choose to have kids.  You'll have the knowledge of what to do to keep them safe if they do have Celiac Disease.  You'll be able to relate since you were young when you were diagnosed.  How was it for you growing up? 
    • My 7 year old son has this happen.  I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry.  It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves....  The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell.  Sleep helps, along with lots of water the following day.  The next day we talk about everything and try to figure out what could have glutened him.  We've had talks with our school and teachers letting them know that our son is to not eat anything unless we bring it.  I think the last time this happened to him was from using shared supplies after a treat party.  Now he's very cautious of putting his hands to his lips or mouth.    Now as far as chips, my kids stick with Kettle Brand Chips.  They are certified.  Potatoes aren't my friend so I can't really say if they taste great.     
    • Exactly!! Scuff, are you doing the gluten challenge?  How far along are you?  
    • Wow - those are some really high numbers. Something definitely has to be going on. It will be interesting to see if the numbers are still high. My  7 year old has one positive celiac test - the TTG IGA and it's just barely positive (20-24 is weak positive and over 25 is positive - she is 27).  Her GI appt isn't til September but I hope the doctor will re-run the bloodwork and then if it's still positive, we will do the endoscopy. I am tempted to run her bloodwork sooner because September is a long wait. I understand that some doctors will diagnose children without endoscopy if you meet 4 out of 5 criteria: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.
