That is a lot to deal with. It means a big adjustment in your diets, it's hard enough avoiding milk and now having to substitute the wheat and gluten products...

I know somebody with celiac disease and I know how hard it is to find substitutes that taste as good, but give yourself time to adjust. Things won't seem so bad after a while. :)

Thanks for letting us know! Celiac disease would be tough to deal with--sorry to hear about that. That explains why your daughter was having trouble gaining weight....that would also probably be why she is anemic. I hope she is feeling better now....I know that with celiac an improvement is not always instantaneous. But once her gut heals, I would bet she will be doing *so* much better.

I Just found out a month or so ago that I have celiac. It's no big adjustment for me however, because I've already know that I am allergic to wheat and oats. Rice pastas are good. I like them. Namasta has some good pancake mixes. Haven't tried their cake mixes yet but I will next month for my sons birthday. Wish me luck! ;)
I hope you have a health food store around to help you find the right stuff for her to eat. Here's a link for a informative Celiac site: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showforum=49
