  1. I was just wondering if anyone has tried getting life insurance for their child with celiac. We just tried to and both have been denied. Does anyone know of a company that will insure them or have any experience dealing with this?
  2. Thank you so much for the list!! Yes, I am in the US.
  3. So Frustrated

    They tested my daughter at about that age, blood test and also colonoscopy/endoscopy. She tested negative then. She also had poor weight gain. They re-tested again at about 2.5 and she tested positive, blood and biopsies. She's been gluten-free since 7/2006. She was 3 in Nov. She still continues to have poor weight gain though- she's only 25lbs. I have an 8mnth old and the GI dr said we shouldn't test her until she's well over a year old because of blood tests not being 100% accurate at that age.
  4. Wondering if anyone can help me out. My daughter (3) has been gluten-free since July 06. She was tested around 11-12 mnths old- negative. Had 2 biopsies also. First one -negative, second one- positive. Blood tests in July 06 were high, Then retested in Oct 06- titers=80, TTG=86.4, retested again March 07, titers= 20, TTG = 67. The docter says she is still getting gluten. I'm not sure where to start to try and figure it out. We have all separate jars of foods for her, sep. toaster oven. I haven't been giving her things that could be cross contaminated, that we know of anyway. Also what ingredient am I looking for in hair products, bath stuff, lotions other than something clearly stating the obvious- wheat, oats, rye, barley....This is so frustrating. Here's a few things that I am now questioning again- Healthy Choice lunch meat- In the containers- Ultra thin honey ham Deli American Cheese- Land of Lakes Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks-tried calling -get different answers Kelloggs fruit snacks- same with this one -different answers Yoplait yogurts Juicy Juice Welch's Jelly Hellmans Mayo Ice cream- any brands as long as plain like choc,vanilla,coffee Do I have to worry about the laundry detergent and fabric softeners that I use? Anything anyone can think of would be great.
