brewstate added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseNew To gluten-free, Question About CravingsMy 7 year old son and family are going on a gluten free elimination diet to see if we can improve his mood swings and depression issues. Both my mom and sis are allergic to wheat so its not a far leap to assume it hereditary.
I have read as much as I can but haven't found an answer to my question yet. DS has been gluten-free for about a week. We are experiencing a lot of the withdrawal symptoms that many have mentioned. One thing I have found alarming is since being off gluten (I'm sure not perfectly yet) my son has developed crazy craving for dairy. He has pretty much disliked and didn't drink milk for 2 years and now he begs for milk, cheese, ice cream, chips with cheese flavoring, anything he can get his hands on really.
Is this part of the withdrawal symptoms or do you think something else is going on here? I don't particularly want to pull him off wheat and dairy at the same time since I'm worried it would overload him but I don't know what to do.
