kids with celiac and doing sports

Barbara - posted on 07/23/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




My step daughter has celiac, diagnosed 4 yrs ago. She has been a dancer before we knew. She has been gaining weight ok and her real mother is concerned that it is too much for her. She is a 4.0gpa student also. Our daughter wants to dance and made the company team. I want to hear from anyone else out there that may have an opinion to help me and her dad make a decision on what to do. Cut back on classes or let her continue and just re-evaluate every month and stay on top of it. I feel like if we cut her classes now, it's like she is being punished for doing everything right.

I could not agree with Sarah more. I cannot wrap my brain around limiting her activities because of her diet.

Why would she not be able to everything she desires? She's not disabled and I am sure you can find a diet that can support her activity level. Unless her physician has told you she should not dance, then why hold her back?
