I know we have gluten free wafers at our church (the pastor's wife has celiac) and they are on their own separate plate and everything.
Holly, you can learn more about it here: http://www.catholicceliacs.org/CatholicCeliacOverview.pdf
Hi Holly, I have read that there are alternative accommodation for communion. You'll probably have to do a search online and talk to your church about it. As for people making assumptions that a little gluten won't hurt... people eventually realize that's not the case when they see your diligence. Good luck with the endoscopy and Happy early Birthday Francesca!
Well we went to the gastric doctor yesterday and my daughters number for Celiac (blood tests) was 100. They have scheduled her for an upper endoscopy on 12/7 (her birthday it was either that or January) So we are on the way home and I am telling her that she will be going to the hospital and she will get an IV. They are just going to check her for Celiac. My husband decided that it would be a good idea to tell her that they would be going to sleep!!! She FREAKED OUT! I told her that Mommy would never stop holding her hand. I would still be holding it when she wakes up. She seemed to calm down. My husband tried to cover by telling her that they were just going to take some pictures of her belly and then they would wake her up. It would only take about 10 min. She seemed a little better with that. I told my husband that sometimes he needs to trust me.
Well anyway I decided (even though it is last min.) to have my family over for her birthday this Saturday and then I told her she could have one of her friends over for a play date on Sunday just to keep her busy.
As soon as I called my mother (on the way home from the appt. So I am already upset) I wished I wouldn't have. She asked about the appt. and I told her what was going on. Then I told her that I wanted to have something for Francesca's B'day on Saturday to try and keep her busy over the weekend. Her answer was well I can't be there at that time I work at 5(I told her 1) I thought to myself. WHY IS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU!!! Sorry as you all can tell I was a little annoyed with the answer that I rec. Sometimes I just don't know what to do with people.
My sister was asking me about the Celiac the weekend of thanksgiving and I am explaining to her that she can not even have the littlest bit of Gluten. Which means that we have to find out from the church if there is an accomodation that can be made for communion. Her answer was well it is such a little amount why would it matter?? REALLY!!! I told her like any other allergy if you are allergic to strawberries then you can not eat even a small bite or you could go into shock and die. This will cause damage that you may not see at first but could really mess you up.
Hello all I am new to the site, my 6 yr old son was dx in 12/09, honeymooned for a year, started humalog 02/2011 and now 11/11 added lantus. He takes 1 unit of lantus and 1 unit of humalog meal times. His A1c is always below 6.5 except at 7.7 when he was diagnosed and again when the honeymoon ended :( I want his A1c to be 5.5- 6 consistently. Nevertheless, I am always interested in finding a better MD and Endo team. I feel like I am the one making the decisions of when to add more insulin, how much and what type. The current MD says you are doing good his A1c is low and says my son's case is unusual and see you in 3 months. Should the MD be doing more or is this standard protocol. I feel so not proactive in my son's care and I feel the MD is not either...perhaps I am expecting to much. Any suggestions on Ped. Endo in Dallas or perhaps realistic expectations of the MD's role
Hello! I am a parent of a son who is T1. He was diagnosed at 16 months. He is now 20 years old. I am also T1.
Hi everyone! I'm actually not a parent but I'm looking for one. I have Type 1 and I'm also the editor of Extra Bilingual Newspaper in Chicago. I'm looking for a parent to talk about their experiences having a child with Type 1. I would love to find a Latino parent because that is our audience.
I think it's super important to address this issue, since there isn't a particular culture or race that has Type 1. I want parents to know what they have to do and how to cope with knowing their child has diabetes. Most of all, I want parents to learn that they shouldn't blame themselves like my mother did. Anyone want to talk to one of my freelance writers? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help would be appreciated.
