I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but my 8yo son was just diagnosed with "probable" celiac disease. His blood tests were positive (really high transglut IgA) - we are awaiting a biopsy to confirm.
Given how high his antibody levels are, I'm pretty we will be going gluten-free after the biopsy in 6 weeks. I found the celiac.com website which has a lot of great information, so I'm preparing for that shift.
I guess the question I have here is how do I support my son in this? How do I break the news? What's the best way to help him deal with saying no to food at school/friend's houses/parties/etc. He's not very sick. His main symptom is anemia that hasn't gone away despite months and moths of iron supplements. So I can't really rely upon him feeling so much better after going gluten-free that the benefits will be obvious to him.
Any advice you can offer would be great. (And if all the celiacs are in another forum, let me know and I'll repost over there...)
