  1. Most doctors wouldn't prescribe a gluten-free diet until a child has both positive bloodwork and a positive endoscopy. They explain that the diet is strict, expensive, lifelong...
  2. Itchy Skin?

    Thanks, Fiddle-Faddle! I completely agree with you about allergies not being the only food-related cause of issues like Eczema. Yes, my allergist thought that Celiac wouldn't...
  3. Itchy Skin?

    Fiddle-Faddle - how many weeks did it take for your son's skin to start to show signs of improvement? My husband and son both have celiac disease. Now, my 2 1/2 year old...
  4. My son and husband ate gluten free pizza at Uno's on the Upper West Side in New York City today. My husband said that it was really good -- for him that meant better than the Amy...
  5. Yes, I think somebody should start another thread to keep this at the top of the forum. Wellshire Farms had a "statement" on their website for less than a week - there was a link...
  6. I, too, am upset. My son has eaten these since day 1 after his diagnosis -- a few times a week. He's such a picky eater and will eat these - even though they are high in fat,...
  7. We have the same problem with our two year old son. We use Miralax when it gets bad, but we've also gotten him to like Lara apple bars - they have walnuts, raisins, dates, apples...
  8. Yes, that's definitely my plan... but I want to have a backup on hand if for some reason we need it.
  9. Hi, My son and husband both have Celiac Disease. We're expecting baby #2 very, very soon. I'm planning to breastfeed for at least a year and follow a gluten free diet myself...
  10. I've had somewhat similar experiences...my son was not growing well and he always had mushy poops. After pos blood tests at about 16 or 17 months and an iffy biopsy, we started...
  11. I don't have Celiac disease, but my son and husband do.... and I'm expecting our second child soon. My son's pediatric gastro, who is part of Columbia Presbyterian's Celiac Disease...
  12. My son was diagnosed last spring and has been gluten-free since. He got up crying this morning and threw up shortly after. We're not sure if he accidentally got some gluten in...
  13. My son and husband were both diagnosed recently. It started with a similar situation -- failure to thrive in our 1 year old son. We did our first celiac disease test on my son...
  14. I would really think about starting a gluten free diet immediately. It cannot hurt your son in any way. Have your GI do blood tests through Prometheus lab tomorrow at the appointment...
  15. Thanks, everyone. I guess I should have mentioned that we are all gluten-free at home -- which is probably 95% of my meals. I guess it's that other 5% that I'm thinking about...
