DD is almost 3 and we're getting blood tests soon. Any tips on surviving the blood draw?

-------------- Original message --------------

Sara,

My son was 2 1/2 when diagnosed...he's now just turned 4 and is THRIVING. Our diagnosis was quick, too, and like you after reading the horror stories we're very grateful.

I use Bette Hagman's True Yeast Bread recipe for bread, it's easy and it's really good. Feel free to email me outside of the group anytime!

Hi,My just turned 2yo was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. We aregrateful to have been given a diagnosis so quickly since we have readsome horror stories about how long it takes people. When we firststarting testing I immediately put him on a GF diet and he respondedwithin just a few days. That was good enough for me, but it's alwaysnice to have a doc agree with you. ;-) (For irony, the show MedicalMysteries premiered the week Celiac was mentioned to us and they had aCeliac boy on the show...weird. :-D)Anyway, we are currently trying to get the bread making down. Not alot of success but I read a few things here today that may explain myproblems.One question I have is about Glutenfreeda.com...I saw it mentionedhere in a message...do you think it's worth the money? I have a fewof Betty Hagman's books but am particularly looking for recipes thatare quick AND fattening. Since I have kids, her fast cooking book isnot a huge help to us since it's for people on a diet. My son has FTTas a result of the Celiac and so he needs a lot of fattening foods toget him back to where he ought to be. Does Glutenfreeda.com have alot of recipes like that?Thanks.ttp://www.homeschoolblogger.com/mistresninos

I had to fatten up my 2 year old after he was diagnosed as well. I

did the same, whole milk instead of skim, lots of butter in

everything, made scrambled eggs with lots of butter & some cheese,

mashed potatoes with butter, cream cheese & sour cream, drank

milkshakes, we did a lot of shepherd's pie too - he even had ice

cream for breakfast for short while. Anything to pack on the

pounds! I was desperate! You can also get Amy's Rice Crust pizza &

add more cheese & pepperoni. And, we dipped lots of things in Ranch

dressing - pizza in ranch, french fries in ranch, grilled chicken

from Chick-fil-a in ranch. He gained weight really rapidly. Now we

have a much more balanced diet, lots of fruit, skim milk, etc... He

weighed 19 lbs from Jan - April of last year & had fallen off the

growth chart, was dx & started gf diet in April (he was FTT too) &

he now weighs 32 lbs & is in the 50% for weight.

I really like glutenfreeda.com. I like the large archive of

recipes, product testing & the " cooking school " items. I subscribed

for a month before subscribing for a year. I haven't tried the

other websites mentioned. But I've found myself prefering recipes

that just don't have any gf substitutions period (and glutenfreeda

has a lot of recipes that do have gf flour or bread.) I look to a

lot of manufacturer websites now - www.kraftfoods.com,

www.missionfoods.com, etc..., as well as through my own cookbooks

for recipes that are naturally gluten free. I guess since my son

was so young when dx, he doesn't have that taste for bread or creamy

soups like we have, and I don't think he misses it, so I don't make

bread or recipes with flour substitutions very often, unless it's a

mix like Pamela's baking & pancake mix for pancakes & cookies, or

www.madebymona.com's multi mix for graham crackers, or a recipe in

one of Bette Hagman's cookbooks for cheese crackers.

Good luck!

is but I just wanted to tell you that I have always easily found

gluten free recipes online without paying for any services. You can

search the files section of this group for recipes. You will find

recipes that are specifically gluten free on celiac.com, gluten.net,

and delphiforums.com and lots of others, I am sure. I also mainly

use allrecipes.com, foodnetwork.com and epicurious.com to search for

good recipes that are sort of " naturally " gluten free. What I love

about those sites is they have ratings by people who have tried the

recipes and often make helpful comments or suggestions or just keep

you from wasting your time on a recipe that is really bad. Also

what I love about allrecipes.com is that you can do a search on

specific ingredients you want to use and exclude ingredients you

don't want (like flour, bread, etc.) and it will come up with a list

for you.

withered away to nothing). I just added fats wherever I could like

cooked his potatoes in olive or canola oil--not deep fried like

french fries but more like pan sauteed. I threw a scoop of sour

cream into his mashed potatoes, added butter to his broccoli or

whatever veggies, melted cheese over his rice or gluten free pasta--

things like that. Shepherd's pie is coming to mind as a good, non

figure friendly meal that is naturally gluten free--just ground

beef ,veggies and seasonings on bottom, topped with mashed potatoes

(and cheese on that if you want), then baked.

I bribed my son with any superhero he wanted. I told him they were going to use a needle to get some blood, and it might pinch a little. He needed to sit very, very still...and if he did that, it would be over quickly and then we'd go to the toy store and get whatever he wanted. I've never seen him sit so still in his life!!!

Has she ever had a blood draw before?

I was very nervous when my son had his (he had two in two months) but

he just wimpered a bit the first time and tried to wiggle. He was

very adult about it. The second time he didn't wiggle at all just a

little cry when the needle first pricked him and that was it. I

suspect that he has a higher pain threshhold than most kids because of

all the pain he's been in since starting solids? Not sure, but that's

my theory.

With my other children, whenever they had to have something huge like

this I took them to the store and bought them whatever they wanted.

That works great on my niece and my second child...nothing works on my

oldest. Shoot, he hides when *other* people are getting shots. roflol.

I hope she will do well. When is she having her tests?

Has she ever had a blood draw before?

I was very nervous when my son had his (he had two in two months) but

he just wimpered a bit the first time and tried to wiggle. He was

very adult about it. The second time he didn't wiggle at all just a

little cry when the needle first pricked him and that was it. I

suspect that he has a higher pain threshhold than most kids because of

all the pain he's been in since starting solids? Not sure, but that's

my theory.

With my other children, whenever they had to have something huge like

this I took them to the store and bought them whatever they wanted.

That works great on my niece and my second child...nothing works on my

oldest. Shoot, he hides when *other* people are getting shots. roflol.

I hope she will do well. When is she having her tests?

Don't they just take it out of their finger?? I find that if, right before they prick, I say something funny or ask a question like what do you want for dinner? or Where should we go shopping at when we leave here? or What movie do you want to rent tonight? Usually breaks my guys concentration enough to get the "prick" done. By all means, DON"T LET her look!! Even I turn my head away!! I'm such a wuss! : )"Calacci, Bridget" wrote: I bribed my son with any superhero he wanted. I told him they were going to use a needle to get some blood, and it might pinch a

Sedatives. For you.

Seriously, he’ll probably be fine.

Mine is needle-phobic and I do have to get ativan for him before any blood

draw. There is also a topical anesthetic the doctor can give you to put on an

hour in advance. Forget what it’s called..

Hi,

My just turned 2yo was recently diagnosed with

Celiac Disease. We are

grateful to have been given a diagnosis so quickly

since we have read

some horror stories about how long it takes

people. When we first

starting testing I immediately put him on a GF diet

and he responded

within just a few days. That was good enough

for me, but it's always

nice to have a doc agree with you. ;-) (For irony,

the show Medical

Mysteries premiered the week Celiac was mentioned

to us and they had a

Celiac boy on the show...weird. :-D)

Anyway, we are currently trying to get the bread

making down. Not a

lot of success but I read a few things here today

that may explain my

problems.

One question I have is about Glutenfreeda.com...I

saw it mentioned

here in a message...do you think it's worth the

money? I have a few

of Betty Hagman's books but am particularly

looking for recipes that

are quick AND fattening. Since I have kids,

her fast cooking book is

not a huge help to us since it's for people on a

diet. My son has FTT

as a result of the Celiac and so he needs a lot of

fattening foods to

get him back to where he ought to be. Does

Glutenfreeda.com have a

lot of recipes like that?

Thanks.
