  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. You can order Kaboom through amazon...case of 4 boxes. For anyone who is in central Wisconsin area you can buy kaboom at Trig's. http://www.amazon .com/General-Mills-KaBoom...5772969-7012628 Kaboom used to be made with oats...I checked general Mills website and box at Trigs and they have removed oats. Hmmm...General Mills must love us??!! WIll be interesting if they label gluten free if and when the new voluntary labeling goes through (not sure on status of tyhat right now???) Someone above mentioned that one of the new disney cereals had oats. I do believe maybe she was right. I seen these at trigs at one time and put the box back because I thought there was something in it that celiacs can't have. I never rechecked box at store til this morning. Bought both...Little Einstiens are yummy. Nine grams of sugar...not bad for kid cereal!!!!! I remember seeing a post in another forum to that Dora for a spell wasn't Gluten Free.
  3. --------------------------------------------- IgG 10.2 (Low Under 10) IgA 0.8 (Low Under 5) TTG IgA 0.6 (Low Under 4) Endomysial IGA Negative Total Serum IgA 72 (Low 41 High 395) Results may support a diagnosis of celiac disease, but are not specific. IgG serological marker for celiac disease detected. AGA IgG elevations with IgA deficiency indicates that celiac disease is probable. AGA IgG elevations with normal total IgA occur in normal individuals as well as other GI conditions. HLA typing may be helpful. (Prometheus) -------------------------------------------------------------- Brought my daughter to a new doctor and he said she definetly does not have asthma. He even supported the Gluten Free Diet...said that they are learning more and more about this disease that they were unaware of in the past. I have discontinued nebulizer, continued with gluten free diet. I also added Natural calm (magnesium...I read that celiacs can cause magnesium defieciency), acidophilis, and multivitamin to the mix (all gluten free) and her cough seems to be decreasing. I do believe that is is a tic. I was in 3rd grade when I believe I first showed signs of gluten intolerance. By sixth grade I myself had a few tics (grew out of them). My daughter is just turning 4 tommorow and I believe her symptoms started around 1...Coincidence???? Any further comments about results above would still be appreciated!!!
  4. I recently had a celiac panel ran on my daughter. She has always had a swollen belly (more recently with stomach pain), small butt, recurrent ear infections resulting in tubes, reactive airway (which I thought she had outgrown) bouts of croup strep, pnumonia, removal of tonsils and adenoids. I learned that I had issues with gluten, not diagnosed celiac but ulcerative colitis. I removed gluten from my diet and expiereinced relief in multiple ways. I recently brought my daughter in to see a allergist because she was constantly clearing her throat...always complaining it was itchy. With that and the afore mentioned symptoms I asked him eot run a celiac panel. --------------------------------------------- IgG 10.2 IgA 0.8 TTG IgA 0.6 Endomysial IGA Negative Total Serum IgA 72 Results may support a diagnosis of celiac disease, but are not specific. IgG serological marker for celiac disease detected. AGA IgG elevations with IgA deficiency indicates that celiac disease is probable. AGA IgG elevations with normal total IgA occur in normal individuals as well as other GI conditions. HLA typing may be helpful. (Prometheus) -------------------------------------------------------------- Can anybody help me understand what these results mean??? Allergist said that this meant nothing not to worry. I removed gluten from her diet anyway. Her belly shrank and mood greatly improved, no more upset tummy. She has had a ear infection and the throat clearing seems to have increased since gluten removal. Allergist said it was asthma and put her on pulmicort and albuterol in nebulizer, cingulair, zyrtec (BTW scratch test showed only a dust mite allergy...he said if had to scale on 1 to 4 would maybe a 1.) I don't know what to do???Is the increase in throat clearing a detox type reaction?? After a week on nebulizer and etc I vaguely notice an improvement. I am scared that this is not asthma and I am over medicating. Or if a detox reaction is meds helping somthing that will just take time. I have read how gluten can affect lungs and also how new tissue replaces old tissue with diet improvement. Is this a rebuilding?? I am scared that I am not getting the right help here!! Stephanie
