  1. I've seen a lot of posts about gluten being in children's products like toothpaste, shampoos, bubble bath, lotions, medicines, etc. But, what are the actual names of the ingredients to look for that have gluten in them?
  2. They were canned peaches and before he went to canned, he had the same reaction with pureed peach babyfood, so I doubt it was related to his chewing. In regards to the "enzymes", I am referring to enzymes in the body that are needed to break down certain food proteins. He is 13 months old and has been gluten-free/CF since November. Maybe, his gut is not all the way healed yet and some foods he is still reacting too because of damaged gut? Is there a supplement to help heal the gut for a baby that young? or, I guess I will just wait several more months and try reintroducing certain foods. Thanks so much for your input and reply.
  3. Son is one year old Celiac. Seems to have a sensitivity to peaches, apricots and blueberries. About 2 hours after eating extremely fussy, irritable and yesterday threw up almost a whole piece of a peach. Almost like the body never broke it down at all. What could this be? I have read about some children lacking certain enzymes needed for breaking down certain foods. What enzyme would this be? And what is in peaches and blueberries that is similar in composition? Are there tests out there for enzyme deficiency, or is he just reacting to something in these foods?
  4. Thank you for your supportive and encouraging words! We should always listen to our "gut"....ha ha Don't give up, and do not get disouraged. We are all warriors in this battle!
  5. Thanks for clarifying. Not sure if the doctor will do the blood test, just for me because I am curious. Especially, now that her IgG was positive, I guess it doesn't really matter at this point that the IgA was negative. I have a feeling he would say, "we have the info we need to make changes" and it is probably not necessary to have 3 y.o. go through a blood draw again. I personally would like to know for sure, because I am trying to explain all this to family members and they think I am crazy now. Because, first I said her tests were negative and now they are positive. I tried to explain to them that it was testing for two different antibodies, one in the blood and one in the stool. I feel like they are doubting me now, but I guess I just need to listen to my "gut". (no pun intended, ha ha) Thanks for the support!
  6. Son is Celiac, spouse is Celiac. Had dtr tested (3 yrs old) through Enterolab and her tests came back in normal range for gluten, soy, and casein. The disclaimer did say that 1 in 500 people do not have the ability to produce IgA antibodies, so she must be one of these people. I think this because she had the ELISA IgG blood test for food sensitivities and it came back positive reactions to 24 different foods, including Wheat and cow's milk. My question is, how do you know for sure if someone doesn't have the ability to produce IgA antibodies. Is there a test? This is all so confusing.
  7. Help

    Hello- Also, keep in mind...although it is rare...some people have a permanent casein intolerance as well, just like gluten. Even though she is drinking Lactaid...it still has casein in it. Remember, a casein intolerance is different from lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is often temporary in celiac, but casein is not.
  8. We live in Murfreesboro. Looking for a support group.
  9. Hi- I know this was posted several months ago, but I was doing a forum "search" for anyone in Tennessee and found this thread. Hope you all will get this notification, not sure how else to contact you all. We live in M'boro and were trying to see if there was a group in this area for meetings? Please respond. If there isn't, maybe we all could start one.
  10. Hi! We are a family of Celiacs from Murfreesboro, Tn. We are looking for a support group or looking to maybe start one. We know there is one in Chatanooga, which is about an hour and a half from us....Thanks
  11. Thank you for your input. I know my son 1 y.o., had a temporary problem with dairy due to the gluten damage. Now that he has been gluten-free/CF, he seems to tolerate dairy okay. He showed within normal range for casein intolerance on enterolab. But, my husband has shown a casein intolerance on enterolab, as well as gluten. We were just trying to figure out, if our son's was temporary, would his be too? But, you clarified it to some extent. Thank you.
  12. Hello- Here is my question: It is my understanding that Lactose intolerance is temporary in Celiacs or gluten-sensitive folks due to the damage in the gut. Once healed, they can tolerate cows milk. But, if someone is tested as having a casein intolerance, is this a permanent life-long situation? Like with gluten? Thanks for any input.
  13. I live in the U.S. Maybe someone has a letter they have used for their doctor and I can copy and paste? Minus all the personal information.
  14. Does anyone know where I can find and print out a template for the doctor to sign that confirms diagnosis. I will be submitting receipts for gluten free foods for taxes. I already have the information about the tax credit, now I need a letter from the doctor. This won't be a problem, but I just thought maybe if there were a template somewhere on-line, I could print out for the doctor and she could just fill in some of the blanks with specifics.
