My eleven year old daughter is going in for a biopsy to see if she too has Celiac. It is an autoimmune disorder and is entirely manageable. Diet is the key. Try www.celiac.org and glutensolutions.com. From what I have been told there are support groups out there for people with Celiac. There are some specialty food stores (natural food stores) that carry gluten free foods. You will have to read your product labels and find out from the Celiac site which ingredients to avoid. Hope everything works out for you and your mom.
