  1. We're trying a gluten-free diet with our daughter to see if it improves her bowel incontinence issues. Can anyone tell me how long we need to stick with the gluten-free diet in order to know if it's working? A week? Longer? Thanks for the help!
  2. I'm confused about my daughter's green poop, too. I'm glad you brought this up! She's been on a gluten-free diet for a few weeks, and we're still seeing the neon green poop. She recently had a KUB X-Ray and she definitely has stool backed up in her system. She's been on miralax on two separate occasions (a week each time), and she still has the back-up. I'm not sure what to do--what length of time has everyone else been on prescribed to take miralax??
  3. Thanks for the quick help. We're brand new to this, and didn't know that oat flour was a no-no! Thanks--I'm learning every day.
  4. Does anyone know if Cap'n Crunch-Crunch Berries is gluten free? It looks to be from the label, but I'm not sure about the "natural flavoring" ingredient. Ingredients: CORN FLOUR, SUGAR, OAT FLOUR, BROWN SUGAR, COCONUT OIL, SALT, SODIUM CITRATE, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED SOYBEAN OIL**, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, STRAWBERRY JUICE CONCENTRATE, MALIC ACID, MALTODEXTRIN, MODIFIED CORN STARCH, NIACINAMIDE*, REDUCED IRON, ZINC OXIDE, YELLOW 5, RED 40, YELLOW 6, BLUE 1, THIAMIN MONONITRATE*, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE*, BHT (A PRESERVATIVE), RIBOFLAVIN*, FOLIC ACID*.
  5. Has anyone used immunotherapy drops as a form of treatment for gluten intolerance?? How about any other homeopathic remedies?
  6. Interesting...she's only four years old. I'll talk to my husband about possibly testing ourselves as well. I was pretty sure that she could be gluten intolerant without being Celiac, but my doctor didn't seem to agree with me. I think I may have to look elsewhere for help to find someone with more knowledge on the subject. Thanks for your help!
  7. We very recently discovered that our daughter has an intolerance to gluten. She tested negative for Celiac, however. I have several questions.... First, do I push the issue and have another/different test done? It's possible for her to have a sensitivity to gluten without being Celiac, right??? We're starting her on a gluten free diet, and it's going pretty well. Do I need to seek help from anyone--GI, nutritionist, etc???
