  1. I agree with the others. I would have the blood test done to screen for it. If it comes negative you can always do a gluten challenge to see if she's intolerant to gluten, but if it's positive it will be easier to get accommodations and...
  2. Has she had her antibody levels rechecked? Our GI doc has been checking every 3 months to see that they go down. To our surprise my dd's levels initially went down, but have steadily been going up. We have had to really change things...
  3. We are going through similar problems with my dd. Her antibody levels have progressively gone up her last 3 checks in spite of us being stricter and stricter with things. We at first were only having her meals gluten free, and then the...
  4. I have 2 kids with type 1 diabetes and 1 child with celiac disease. None have both. We just follow the same meal plan for everyone. I also am an identical twin myself so I've read up a little on this. Your other twin is definitely very...
  5. Yes, we've found a couple places that she has been being exposed to gluten still so we're still working on this. She's getting contaminated out of the home I think, but still working on pinpointing all the sources. It's very frustrating...

    Breakfast Restaurants...

    Those test strips are too expensive for that. I am only testing things that we eat regularly that I am suspicious of. My family goes out to this restaurant every week and my husband was not convinced that it was contaminated. Since we...
  7. French Meadow makes some pretty good gluten free frozen cupcakes http://www.frenchmeadow.com/ You can check out the store locator to see if they are available near you. If I get in a pinch on time I will pick those up. My dd likes Kinnikinnick...

    School Lunch Ideas

    My dd hates lunch meat or any meat that is cold at all so that eliminates a lot of the roll up type foods or lunchable ideas. We do a lot of leftovers from dinner that get popped in the microwave for her. We also send in gluten free chicken...

    Breakfast Restaurants...

    Interesting that you post this. We ordered EZgluten test strips so we could test our favorite breakfast restaurant. We eat there every Sunday after church and I have been suspecting that my dd's food was contaminated. They have shown...
  10. I agree with the advice above. I'd start with doing as much naturally gluten free options as you can. We buy one new gluten free food to try a week. (Well we aren't doing that much any more, but that's what we were doing.) We wound up...
  11. While I get what you are saying a lot of the kids are having poor growth and poor weight gain. My dd for example hasn't ate dinner lately because she's so darn picky. She will just not eat. Some of these kids will choose not eating at...
  12. We are still working on my dd gaining weight. She has not gained any weight in a year and I am very concerned about that. She is 7 soon to be 8. She has been completely gluten free for a year, but her antibody levels are still high indicating...
  13. I agree with the others on getting a diagnosis if you can, especially if he is fighting you on this. If he has celiac then he will have to accept this no ifs, ands, or buts. Without a formal diagnosis it is going to be harder to keep him...
  14. I've read a bit on this as I have a 6 month old. There are some new studies out saying that the best time to introduce gluten is between 4-6 months to reduce the risk of celiac. Because our whole house is now gluten free I am finding it...
  15. I can sympathize on this one. My dd celiac antibodies were not going down so we finally made the switch to the whole family being gluten free almost a month ago. We have a large family as well - 7 kids, 6 living at home. I got picky eaters...
