Re: Gluten Free Mamas, UNITE!
Hey GF mamas!
My 5 year old son is GF and it was a long road to find out what was going on with him. He was always tired. He couldn't walk more then a block with out being completely exhausted. His joints hurt him really bad and he had constant headaches and every day he had diarrhea (tmi I know) . He was not even on the growth charts. We went to every specialist in the area tiring to find out what was going on and everyone keep telling us he was just little, a late bloomer maybe. One day I was browsing the internet and I came across the blog (http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/) I started reading her story and it sounded way to familiar. So I went back to his GI doctor and asked if she thought he might have a gluten allergy or intolerance. She told me it was extremely rare and unlikely that was what was causing all of his symptoms. I wasn't convinced and I when home and started looking up GF recipes. We started eating GF the next day and in less then a week I saw a huge change in him. He had so much more energy. His headaches went away, no more waking up at night crying in pain. It was like a whole different little boy.
