I became aware I was gluten intolerant, possibly celiac in 2005. In 2008 I did blood panel testing and also came up with significant allergies to milk, several nuts ...and pineapple, of all things!
My sister's daughter was diagnosed celiac at age 12. The rest of my relatives have not tested, and refuse to, though I suspect they have allergies.
Even though my daughter, now 10, hasn't shown any significant symptoms of food allergies, except for bouts of stomach cramping (infrequent) and canker sores (regularly) I felt uneasy with the amount of bread and milk she loves to consume and wondering about the genetic links to allergies, I recently tested her for milk, gluten, soy and egg through Enterolab.
The results were low positives for all four. I feel overwhelmed and would welcome any advice on making the transition to a restricted diet household, blog links and any other insight.
I do a lot of scratch cooking and label reading anyway, and hopefully will find it easier easing my child into my way of eating (which is basically paleo), but she's picky and it's a challenge.
