Hello everyone! My 5 y.o dd was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago, and my 14 m.o. dd just had blood work done today. My 5y.o. presented with very slow weight gain (she weighs in at 37 pounds), very-very dry skin, ADD (dx'ed the same day as the blood resluts came in 2 weeks ago!) frequent mood swings, poor school preformance, and craving carbs. She also has a disorder called Sensory Intergration Dysfunction. (hense mom2SIDkid). We removed gluten at the very time of confirmed blood test. (Dr. did not do a biopsy at this time) It's been a little rough going to say the least. BUT, My dd's eye have been shining much brighter, dark circles are definatly less, and she is talking SO much!!!

Having a few problems finding good things to eat, so much of her past diet was bread type products, and most of what she will eat now is loaded with sugar. (have not found decent gluten-free bread or bread mix). Because of her sensory issues there are things that she completely avoids eating because of how it feels. (in her mouth or hands)

I am glad to meet all of you, and to know that I am not alone in helping my dd (possibly dd's!)

I don't have alot of experience regarding the ADD or mood behaviors, but I love a gluten-free bread mix I get. It's from Bob's Red Mill Wonderful gluten-free bread mix. It's very easy and tastes great! It freezes well too.

Hope this helps.

There are many recipes on this site...

Welcome!

I have tried and use daily a bread from "Food For Life"... there are several types (flavors) so find one she'd enjoy. Does she like raisins? They have a cinnimon and raisin one. I particularily like the white rice or brown rice. They are pre-made and take moments to toast and have a nice little snack or with your meal. Its not light and fluffy like normal bread but I have grown to enjoy it very much.

Or here is a recipie for some bread:

Yeast-Free Sandwich Bread

1 cup brown rice flour or garbanzo/fava bean flour

2/3 cup potato starch

1/2 cup tapioca flour

3 tablespoons honey or sugar

2 tsp. xanthan gum

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. unflavored gelatin

1/4 tsp. potato flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten or 1/2 cup soft silken tofu, creamed

1 cup milk (cow, soy, or rice)

1/4 cup melted butter or vegetable oil

Grease two 5x3 inch non-stick pans, or a 9x5 inch non-stick pan.

Preheat oven to 375degrees F.

Copmobine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. With electric mixer on low, add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.

Spoon in prepared pans, smooth top with wet spatula (if necessairy), and bake small pans for 45-50 minutes, large pan for 50-55 minutes until top is deeply brown and loaf sounds crisp when tapped. Don't underbake. cool completely on wire rack before slicing eith electric knife. Serves 12.

NOTE: Sugar may be reduced but crust will be rougher and flavor somewhat diminished.

Yeast-Free Dill Onion Bread: Add one teaspoon dillweed, 1 1/2 tsp dillseed, and 1Tbsp dry minced onion.

Enjoy, lemme know how it turns out if anyone tries it. I just got the cookbook and havent tried it yet. Yumm cant wait though!

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
