It's been a month of gluten free for my daughter and I'm very happy to report that it's been a great help! Her stomachaches and gas issues are practically non-existent! Another improvement has been her nails and skin!! She has always had eczema and severe dry skin problems, but she pointed out to me yesterday how soft the skin on her hands felt (I can't tell you how many different lotions and creams we've tried in the past, so this is HUGE!!)
We've been very strict with her diet over the past month and have learned lots! We even learned how to take a family vacation and accommodate her needs (it was a lot easier that I thought it would be!) Starting today, we're going to slowly let her try back some foods which we eliminated due to possible "cross-contamination" (i.e., the nature valley bars that are made with oats that might be gluten-contaminated).
The changes over the past month have been worth every extra dollar and minute spent researching and shopping!
