  1. Yes, thanks. He is getting follow up care with a functional medicine doctor who has agreed to act as his primary. He seems to be getting past many of the stomach issues and has only missed 2 days of school this year compared to missing 4 weeks typically. Since he was doing so much better physically...
  2. You are correct. I am just trying to figure out what kind of reaction he's having. We haven't had any life threatening moments but his soy and gluten issues have caused some pretty severe reactions and he lives in fear of accidentally getting soy. I definitely know that the years before my older...

I have found there can be drastic differences in what's available and what's understood between two different hospitals in the same city. I think you should do your research ahead of time in all available...
  8. My sons and I have both been diagnosed with Celiac. My youngest son who is now 18 is the most recent to be diagnosed. For myself and my older son, we both saw a marked decrease in anxiety when we went gluten-free. However, my youngest son was the most chill person ever to emerge from my gene pool...
