Any good suggestions on a dairy free version of cheese for the pizza?
OK mystery solved. The dr. mixed up my younger daughter’s lab results with my older daughter (the one who is diagnosed with celiac and was getting her antibodies checked as a follow-up)…..phew.
I can hardly believe this myself and I just don’t understand how it could be true: but my daughter’s doctor called today and her celiac panel (which I thought was useless because she’s never had gluten) showed elevated antibodies! I think it was TTG, but my husband took the call so I did not get to ask. She has never in her life consumed gluten! I do not understand how she could be getting cross contamination. We have a completely gluten free home; new cookware, I’ve checked hygiene products, she’s not in daycare so she ONLY eats at home. I think I’m gonna go insane, this is such a nightmare!
Is there something specifically that is leading you to consider diabetes? I believe the ped did say he was going to check her glucose level too, but we have not received any results yet. I was also thinking other food allergies and questioned about that, but he said probably not because she does not have eczema, vomitting, or diarrhea. I do wonder about nutrient deficiencies since we have had her on a pretty limited diet. If I was deficient (having malabsorption) would that contribute to her “starting out” deficient, in the womb or being exclusively breastfed?June 14, 2010 at 11:41 pm in reply to: Cesarean Section Linked to Increased Risk of Celiac Disease #8658
I was thinking the exact same thing about the mother’s that require C-sections may be more likely untreated gluten intolerants, then they pass that on to their children. It seems logical to me. Obviously not all untreated gluten intolerants require C-sections (I had four normal vaginal deliveries), but it does stand to reason this could be a contributor in the rise of C-sections today. I honestly would hate to think doctor’s are prescribing unnecessary C-sections.
How long does a person typically need to be on the vitamins once they are on an appropriate diet and the path to healing? I mean should we expect to take supplements forever or is it a temporary thing? The good vitamins seem to be very expensive.
