    Went To See A Dietitian

    Just wanted to say thanks to all who replied. I actually typed a response yesterday but not sure where it went - probably hit the wrong button. Anyway, I'm taking a deep breath and diving in. I'm sure I'll make plenty of mistakes along the way, but it can't be as bad as doing nothing. Thanks to a great pediatrician, we got a diagnosis pretty quickly so in that way we are ahead of the game. I'm sure I'll be back with lots more questions - it's good to have such a valuable resource!
  2. My 16 yo daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac disease (endoscopy) and ulcerative colitis (flex sigmoidoscopy). I'm wondering if these are 2 separate diseases or if the Celiac is causing the UC. The GI doctor wrote a prescription for Asacol and told her to take 2 pills, 3 times a day and that she would probably have to do this for 5 years to prevent recurrence. Is it possible that a gluten-free diet could heal the colitis and she could avoid taking all this medicine? I've noticed a lot of people have said they were "misdiagnosed" with IBS for many years before getting a Celiac diagnosis. Thanks for any help.

    Went To See A Dietitian

    I am new to all this - my 16 yo daughter was just diagnosed on Friday. I was hoping that an appointment with a dietitian was going to be really helpful, but now I'm not so sure. To be honest, I'm feeling overwhelmed by too much information. Can someone suggest a good place to start - it would take me days to work through all the info on just this website alone. In my ignorance, I bought rice krispies for her breakfast thinking they were okay. How can you tell - the ingredients did not list wheat, rye, barley, or oats. Thank you!
