Thanks for the update.  Crossing my fingers for you.

My dog is severely allergic to gluten.  I made the mistake of trying a new (supposedly) gluten free food starting two weeks ago.  He had a grand mal seizure in bed with us at 7am on Saturday.  We cleaned out his system, got rid of the food, and replaced it with his old food.  I am starting to think that gluten can’t be good for us either if it gives my dog seizures.

That’s great news!!! Celiac isn’t fun but it’s not as hard as EoE. I’ll keep your daughter in my prayers!

Good news! I feel like coeliac is becoming much better understood lately, and there are more coeliac options available in supermarkets. My mum has it and she can usually find good alternatives to pasta and bread (just toast the bread beforehand, because it tastes like a wet sponge untoasted!)

@beachbride1216:  

hi! I just wanted to reply and say I’m so sorry that happened to your dog! However, about the comment re: gluten, you have to keep in mind something that is toxic to one organism isn’t too another. Case in point peanuts aren’t the devil even though sone people may be deathly afraid of it. 

I don’t want to make light of what happened, it was awful and it is serious. A gluten free diet is serious and the only treatment for people with a serious disease. However the antagonization of gluten has much to do with marketing and companies jumping on the awareness of celiac and other gluten disorders.
