Posted by Mary on July 13, 2003 at 11:33:32:

Somebody please help! My son is 9 & has had coeliac hospital blood test negative & an igg blood test negative yet when he eats it he babbles & acts so strange, when he was 4 he craved pasta & that was all he would eat but it caused diarrhea(even though he was on good vits & mins)so why could this be????? i just KNOW wheat/gluten is a problem but everyone is saying no, dont know what test next or where to turn really, yes ive thought of candida but hes never had high sugar/bread diet nevver had antibiotics just sure problem has is something to do with grains in someway, he had igg to dairy but i already knew that as a baby so he hasnt been on it.he is blood group o & he is short.

I am intolerant to gluten. I had many GI symptoms for a couple years and finally had my nutritionist do muscle testing "kinesiology" and she said "you are intolerant to gluten". I had been anemic for years and years and always taking iron supplements so my GYN referred me to a GI doc. While waiting for the GI appt., I had the appt. with the nutritionist. Whent the GI appt. came up and the doc suggested a colonoscopy and endoscopy I asked for a biopsy for diagnosing celiac's diseast. Six weeks later, I have the biopsy (all this time beforehand I am eating gluten free) and the biopsy shows negative for celiac's disease. The GI doc wants me to start eating gluten again so he can make a better diagnosis. I told him "No, thanks". It is enough for me to remove the gluten from my diet and see that I have none of the previous symptoms. Within one year, my anemia was gone without iron supplementation. I had osteopenia also and will be tested for bone density again in a month. I hope that my bone density will show an increase too.

There is a mail list for celiac's disease and a wonderful, informative website at celiac.com where you can get tons of information. In the meantime, try to relax about it. The stress of worrying about it won't help a bit. Put your child on a gluten free diet - there are so many ways around eating gluten. You'll both be happier.

Hi Mary,

Just because someone isn't celiac doesn't mean they don't have some kind of sensitivity to wheat. Don't bother with tests telling you that -- his reaction is the test! So take your child off of it! There are so many other good things to eat.

I am sensitive to wheat but never bothered to get a test for it. Just eating the stuff was enough proof!

Best wishes,
Happygal

Mary,

Do not tie your son's future to the current primitive state of allopathic medicine. 100 years from now the current understanding of this process will be considered ludicrous.

There are many other things besides gluten in wheat that he could be responding to. Read Dr Phillpott's book "Brain Allergies" and Dr Micheal Gershon's book "The Second Brain" to see just how primitive conventional medicine's understanding really is. THEN, just see how far you get with your docs when you try to share these international experts findings with them.

Let us know what you learn.

Listen to Happygal and Shelly.

Walt
