Yeah, I need to go on about those darn genes again. Im over it, I dont care, but maybe you guys do and you deserve to know.
Hubby has the gene too. Although it was expected, it just seemed far fetched….. well. He has it, which I guess now makes his DH diagnosis 100%. He has one of the genes only, but if I understand the result correctly he has both sides of it so would have gotten it from both his mum and his dad. Our poor kids really didn’t stand a chance eh?
Well, Ive said it before and I will say it again. Everything happens for a reason, this was obviously meant to be.
Now we are a family of 4 that are gluten free, no longer because we chose it, but because we have to be. All of us. Sons last profile was negative, but he only did 11 days of gluten. Those 11 days his rash came back and his tummy was bad and he didnt want to eat any more of it…. not putting him through 6 weeks of it, partly because its cruel, and partly because we cant as it will expose his very sensitive sister. So thats it, he will now be 100% gf out of the house also.
Shall I rename the blog now? GF & US? 😛
Sorry to hear about the diagnosis but it’s good that you found out while your kids are young. They will thank you later for helping them avoid wreaking havoc on their bodies and teaching them how to live gluten free before they leave the home!
Yes, in many ways we are the lucky ones 🙂 Daughter diagnosed before turning two, now son at 8. Hopefully it will spare them some future issues!
