Going gluten-free at age 13

Posted By on June 15, 2009

NPR had a piece this morning about a boy who found he had celiac disease at age 13 and needed to go on a gluten-free diet. They noted that there are many more products available today to help provide a “normal” assortment of foods like sandwiches and cookies.

We have been on a Gluten Free Casein Free (GF-CF) diet for over ten years and have found it to be well worth the effort. GF-CF effectively means no wheat and no dairy and that pretty much eliminates 90% of the products found at a typical grocery store.

We have had many requests for details of how we do our diet and I’ll kick off that series soon.
