Hi there. Already intro'd myself in the parents of kids section, but see that this is the place. My 11 year old daughter recently diagnosed. Very ill, hospital etc. Initially thought anorexia, blood and biopsy showed celiac. Baby steps. difficult adjustment for her for sure, but we're making small gains. :)

    • There are some nutritional issues to watch out for in a vegan diet.  Personally I don't think it's great idea when the person has a chronic digestive disease that is responsible for causing mal-absorption of nutrients.  Vegan in a celiac seems kind of like pouring gas on a fire.  The vegan diet makes getting some important nutrients harder, and celiac disease does the same thing.  I don't know of any studies on it, but my guess is a vegan celiac may take longer to recover their health.  And since it can take 5 years or more to recover from celiac damage, it seems to me that is not a good thing. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/vegetarian-diet/art-20046446?pg=2
    • What language are they speaking in the video? Is there a version with subtitles? 
    • So, if I were to make this with white sugar, how much would you recommend?  Can you substitute the almond butter from peanut butter? what cereal do you recommend? A regular style that would be at a standard grocery store I mean, not something I'd have to order  I'm lazy like that.  Sorry to massacre your recipe. Wish you were in NC and my neighbor so I could just buy your stuff.
    • There was a thread on here some time ago from someone struggling to be gluten free on a vegan diet that got some good responses from vegan celiacs. Maybe worth a search, this forum has had so many members over the years who have been through similar.  
    • Welcome  3 positive looks about as unequivocal as it gets barring the endoscopy for confirmation.  You should be proud of yourself for figuring this out and pushing for the test. It looks very much like you've found your answer and hopefully once the testing is complete you can look forward to feeling a lot better. There will be lots of support available here for you when that happens.  Best of luck
