 Celiac disease.I'm glad we finally know for certain what is/was wrong with his stomach,but now I am arguing with my husband.Because he doesn't think we should alter the diet at home at all....

 The doctor told us it is difficult to put a kid on a STRICT gluten-free diet because the child is not with his/her parents all the time.And,so at some point will end up eating something with gluten in it.My husband took this to mean that Brian shouldn't be on a gluten-free diet at home...HUH?I don't like seeing Brian sick and removing the gluten will fix it,so don't worry,my whole household will be eating gluten free by the end of the month. I don't understand how guys think most of the time...It will be hard to do,so don't bother?

 Just venting.Carry on.



Thought for the day :


 Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible that way.

My best friends daughter was just diagnosed about 3 years ago, and they have her on a strict diet. She takes her own lunch to school and doesnt eat anything but that. She's older (18) so she knows what to watch for, but in a younger kiddo its gotta be hard

 Hard but not impossible.The doctor thinks both my hubby and I need to be checked for it also.He said that for someone to have Celiac both parents have it or are carriers

I definitely would. Britt's dad has it, but never found time to tell my BFF (he's a 'im a dad when its convienent for me' kind of person), so she was having all kinds of problems and finally after 2 years, they figured it out.

Men are stupid.  I hope that he comes around.  I think the diet will probably make a huge difference.

Maybe he doesn't know how severe it can get? Most people think the reaction is just an upset tummy, they don't realize that the reactions get more severe over time and with repeated exposure it could kill him.

 The doctor said we caught it soon enough that it hasn't caused a lot of damage and that the diet will help Bri feel better.His daddy will come around because I am switching the diet of my household anyway.

Being strict gluten-free is hard but doable. Brian is at an age he can read labels, if not home with you. 

I don't have Cliac disease but I have intolarance to gluten I do all I can to be gluten-free.

 My hubby has always been the "You don't need medicine-there is nothing wrong with you"type. He won't get away with it this time...Not when there is something I can do to make sure my son feels better,kwim?
