Find her a gluten free buddy. She needs to talk with someone who understands and has been in her shoes. I can put her in contact with a young lady who is 14 and has a solid grasp on the diet. Her main obsticle is goingto be maintaining "normalcy". A solid friend base who support her and her diet are going to prove to be very important also. Peer pressure is killer at that age, her friends need to understand the diet and what cheating will do to her.

Wow! She has alot to deal with at such a young age. As far as her eating gf, I'm sure you know what will work best for her. It might be good to let her school know of her food "restrictions". That way they can accomodate her.

On the emotional end, if she is having alot of problems dealing with family issues then talking to a professional might be her best option.

There are two paths you can go by, but in the longrun....There's still time to change the road you're on

The only thing I can think of is to try helping her realize how lucky she is to have been diagnosed young...and how much better she can feel now that she knows what's wrong.

Hey everyone,

My 16yr old niece was just diagnosed with Celiac on Friday. I've been diagnosed for about 6 months and other than helping her with what brands to buy and warnings for foods she wouldn't think about I'm at a loss for how to help her emotionally.

She has had a really tough year, her dad has been battling stomach cancer (which we think might have been her trigger for CD) and she's had many other health issues of her own.

Any advice on how to help a young girl deal with this is much appreciated.
