        Another thing that helps is to drink a cup of ginger tea right after eating. It's best to use fresh ginger root. Shave some off, steep it, then strain it. You can add a bit of lemon and honey too if you like. But if you can't do that, any form of ginger will help. If you can find ginger candy, or even gluten-free gingersnaps, make them your dessert after every meal.

        Actually, when I was having this kind of bloat before I knew I had celiac I found that drinking prune juice really helped. Honest to goodness. I don't know how it works to break up the gas bubble but it worked for me. It's like this humongous gas bubble is sitting in there taking up all the available room. You literally feel like you will quite simply explode like a balloon popping. I once took so many Gas X trying to get it to budge & they all sat up there on top of that big bubble & I ended up vomiting all the GasX & still had the bloat. I'm not saying GasX won't work -- it did help me numerous times; I'm just saying prune juice really helped more. And I agree with cyclinglady about the walking. Walk, walk, walk, keep moving.

        Try a bandaid approach while you are waiting for test results.  Maybe some Gas-EX?  Or...get out and take a walk.  Moving around helps keep your mind off things and keep things moving through your intestines.Walking might not be your thing, but you what I am saying.   Try not to neglect your studies.  Take baby steps.  Study. walk. Study. Walk.  You do not want to be slammed with work.  The quarter or semester will be over before you know it!  
      • Please help make sense of Celiac test for 3 year old
        By cyclinglady · Posted
        Based on the lab results you posted, it looks like she does NOT have celiac disease.  The TTG and the DGP were both under the range and her IGA deficiency test was normal making the other two tests valid.   But...I am with you.  I think she might not have had  enough gluten in her system.  The standard (or at least what the University of Chicago recommends)  is 1 to 2 slices of bread daily for 8 to 12 weeks!  When I tested my daughter, I had her consuming gluten daily three months prior to help prevent.....DOUBT.  (She has tested negative so far.).  Or...she might just starting and has not generated enough damage to show on the tests.   Like your daughter, mine was in the 5% club until she was three.  She hit 10% by 5 years old and by the 3rd grade she hit and has remained at 50%.  So, I would not worry about the weight just yet!  I would be concerned about the dark circles. Does she have any allergies?  Have you eliminated milk?  (That will not affect future celiac testing.) it could be a source for constipation.   You could keep her on gluten for another two months and re-test or go gluten free.  If she does well on the diet, will your doctor give her a formal diagnosis?  You could ask for the gentic test too.    Only you know your situation and what is best for your child.   Glad to hear that your son is thriving!
