First off -- celiac, as far as I know, doesn't care if you're male or female. I have never heard it's more prevalent in one sex or the other.
Second -- re. bread. Two suggestions. If you're intent on making your own, I really like the recipes from Bette Hagman. Look for her "Gluten-Free Gourmet" cookbooks. But, I have discovered two ready-made breads that are very good. One is Udi's, and the other (though spelled similarly, truly a different company) Rudi's. Rudi's makes other non-GF products, but I love their GF multi-grain bread. I found early on that whether you bake your own bread or buy it, the cost ends up being pretty much the same.
Udi's also has a crispy thin pizza crust that my husband and I fight over. :)

I have had lots of allergy issues in my home with both my daughters and myself needing special diet considerations. Carol Fenster is the author that I get cookbooks from and her cookbook "Cooking Free" was very helpful. It has lots of suggestions and recipes with substitutions for dairy, wheat, eggs, soy etc. I learned how to make my own dairy free cream sauces for substituting in casseroles and how to bake with egg substitute. I use almond breeze brand almond milk and coconut milk ice creams and sheep cheese and coconut yogurt products. My family substitutes ground turkey and pork for hamburger very successfully in many meals. Pamela's Brand Bread Mix tastes good and is easy to make gluten free bread from and looks like it doesn't contain any of your allergy items listed you will have to also purchase egg substitute and almond milk to substitute when you make it. There are also cookbooks that use only almond flour that might be helpful to you. You might see if your local library has access to allergy free cookbooks as well. Barb

Brandin welcome to this site. I am sorry to hear what you are going through. I do not have any children so cannot give any advise on what to do for your son. I am sure that other members will come on and give you some good advise.
Have you ever checked out the recipes on spark page? They do have a lot of different recipes that you can check out.
Do you have Celiac also? Please keep us posted and let us know if you were able to find some good recipes.

Hi everyone... Having a hard time finding good recipes for breads and pizza dough.. Want to make my own not store bought... Most of store bought have either peanut facility or tree nut facility and my one son is both and the other is peanut free. My son went to a Natural Path and he was high on beef, lamb, casein, gluten, wheat, giliden, peanuts moderate, all milk, cheese,eggs white and yellow. That means no yogurt. There are many more.. Can anyone help with the recipes please.. I was also told that Celiac is more Woman than men. Not sure how true that is... Trying to get my son tested for Celiac. But hard to get him there. If anyone else is having a hard time to get one of there kids to go for a needle this is the product that works.. It is called emla cream.. It is about 12.00 CDN. It does work. Just need to get him there now...Thank you...
