Check first that this diagnosis has been made by a medical doctor.
If this is so this young girl will have to follow a completely gluten-free diet immediately, and for the rest of her life.

On this diet she should recover her health quickly.

These pages have lots of details about what she can eat

Note that she should not eat the following

In the UK the coeliac society produces a booklet of suitable manufactured foods.

In reply to everyone, I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease when I was 11 months old, and am now 41.



I am generally well, I am anaemic - have stiff and sore joints - have bad or no circulation and my immune system has been tested and shown that it is a bit weak -



It must be worse being diagnosed after you have been able to eat what you like for years, so in a way I reckon Ive been lucky diagnosed so young.



But dont give up hope, it will get better - look on Coeliac Disease NOT SO MUCH A DISEASE BUT MORE A WAY OF LIFE.
