my Daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac disease

Barnet - Thu, 17 Nov 2016

Finding foods my teenage daughter likes has been near impossible but it has only been 3 days. Her TTG’s came back extremely high (85) and it seems like getting her below 4 is a lifetime away.
I just want to make this easier for her. I want to find foods she can enjoy. She was a total foodie before this. She loves to cook and try new recipes but she hates the new ingredients before she even tries them. I am hoping this is just the initial anger phase and she will move out of it
Please tell me I am not the only mother that has gone through this. I feel so lost and alone right now.

Hi Carylm,

There are now many foods on the market for people with coeliac. Some can even be prescribed by your GP. Also your surgery might have a dietitian or your GP can refer you to give you advice.

Have you tried coeliac UK
