I hope it's ok to brag and not ask a question. I'm one proud momma and other parents of kids without celiac don't understand. My son was diagnosed 5 weeks ago by biopsy. We have been gluten free for 4 weeks and 3 days. In that time he has gained 4 lbs - he had not gained a pound in a year and a half prior to this. He has also grown 1 full inch in ONE MONTH. I'm beyond thrilled. He has not had a tummy ache in 3.5 weeks. I just want to cry because I'm so happy. He has moved from the 20 percentile for both weight and height to the 50 percentile in one month. I'm so happy my child is now a typical 4 yr old. He runs and plays all day and he's not a TV junkie any more. He never asks to watch TV. Yesterday he went swimming TWICE!!!!! Thanks for all the support and tips on this site. I know I'm not alone in all this.

Weird. I posted a few minutes ago but it did not show up.

Anyway, you have every right to inspire us with your story and be proud of your precious son. I would say this is nothing short of miraculous! :)

:D REJOICING WITH YOU!!!!!!!

My 3 year old has grown one inch per month since going gluten free. Her tests were "inconclusive" but we got our "diagnosis" with her THRIVING for the first time in her life. I cried when I found out how much she had grown and gained. SOO amazing isn't it.

    • I have problems with corn so I have to be aware of that when shopping for spices and gluten-free baking products as Raven pointed out. I use Badia which states certified gluten-free As for encouragement drink lots of water and rest. A nice soak in tub sometimes is soothing. I hope it passes soon. If you find out it is gluten-free after all ask about corn in product, on the line, or facility . May your symptoms be minimal and pass fast  best wishes edit: it was Karen not Raven who mentioned corn  starch my bad entirely 
    • Nov 18, 2015 >.< yeah it was older, Checked some newer testing others have done and found the more recent ones under 5ppm.....so perhaps they got their act together. I still am that old dog recalling being hit and growling at them about it.
    • Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for this? What time period were these tests done?  I am fairly certain you are showing old data here, that is old news that was dealt with by GM...but please share if you know.
    • Granbia is wholesale only, GFHarvest you can order and they ship anywhere sales under http://www.glutenfreeoats.com/gluten-free-oatmeal/

      Sorry to be the jumpy rabbit, but once bitten twice shy, I recall when they first came out with gluten-free cheerios....yeah it was worse back then and that pain and trickery will not be forgiven.
    • Oh, and how much do Granbia and GFHarvest cost, and how available are these cereals?
