  1. Thank you for looking for me, I couldn't find anything. I do think it was a bug, I think you just automatically assume it is food related, but she has felt better tonight. Once again thanks,
  2. Hi All My daughter has been getting better since being on a gluten/wheat/dairy free diet for the last six weeks but this weekend she has had a bit of tummy ache and feeling sick, the only different foods she has eaten is McCains microwave chips (ingredients - potatoes and sunflower oil) some polo mints and some tic tacs (I thought these were all ok - I have also been feeling a bit off colour last couple of days (I am not on a gluten diet) and don't know whether she has just caught a bug like any normal child does. Can anyone tell me if the above foods are ok, I have tried to find out on internet but to no avail. Also, I have read a lot of topics on here where people say their Acid Reflux and Asthma greatly improve on a gluten free diet but I have noticed my daughter still has these symptons and they seem to be worse than ever, she is taking 15mg of Lansoprazole before her evening meal and although it is better I know adults that take 50mg and tell me it works, she has never been diagnosed with acid reflux but the doctor prescribed these after we explained the symptons. She is also constantly complaining of a tight chest, Asthma nurse last week said it could be a mixture of everything (very helpful!!!) We do have an appointment at the childrens hospital on 23rd May which I arranged back in March when she was really ill so hopefully will get some answers then but in the meantime if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it. Thanks,
  3. Hi, I am new to the gluten free diet so I don't want to advise what you should do but my daughter (aged 11) was having 2 -3 loose stools every day for the last 3 weeks. Since going Gluten free (now on our 6th day) she has only been going once a day and they are not as loose as they have been and her tummy aches have all but disappeared. Good Luck, I hope you get it sorted X
  4. Thanks for your responses, it all really helps to know that there are others are in the same position, I should have said the blood test wasn't for food allergies, it was to check liver function and general health, that is why it is frustrating when they could have checked for it. Have been reading other posts and all have been very helpful. Thanks again X
  5. Hi, I have just registered with the site as I have been searching the web for weeks now to try and find out what could be wrong with my 11year old daughter. When I look back over the last two years there have been times I remember her saying she feels sick or has tummy ache. She is very active and involved in lots of sports clubs but over the last 4 weeks she has stopped them all as she has been so unwell. From an early age I mentioned whether she may have Asthma as she suffered from a lot of chest infections but was always just given antibiotics, after a visit to A & E about 3 years ago she was prescribed an inhaler but even though she has kept up with the preventer and inhaler the Doctors would never officially say she has Asthma. At a doctors appt last September we mentioned the tummy aches/sickness and muscle pain and was told that it all came down to growing pains and the fact that she does a lot of sport. Over the last six months the feeling of unwell has become more often and before Easter she was struggling to go to School, another visit to the doctors and was told basically there was nothing wrong with her, even though she was now feeling sick constantly and having several very loose bowel movements every day. I asked the doctor about food allergies and he looked at me as though I had said something wrong, he said it was very difficult to get tested so we should keep her off dairy for a month and if no improvement remove wheat/gluten from her diet. My daughter and I left feeling very frustrated. Within a week we were back at Doctors (different doctor) and after weighing her again noticed she had lost a bit of weight. The doctor booked a blood test and stool sample and prescribed her Zoton in case it was a problem with too much Acid in her tummy. After a week of no change I took her off the Zoton tablets as they had Lactose in them. Back at the doctors we were told her tests were normal and the doctor handed me an information sheet about celiac disease. Since last Thursday she has been on a lactose and gluten free diet and the tummy aches have almost gone but she is now struggling with headaches and a tight chest. I apologise for the long post but I am very frustrated with not getting any answers. I finally demanded that she be referred to a Peadatrician but why didn't they test for this originally because if I do see more improvement I can't imagine putting her back on a Gluten diet just to be tested again. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated as I feel like I am on my own. Thanks Ruth
