  1. My heart is so broken. We cut gluten out of my child's diet because she was chronically constipated, in doing so we discovered that while not ingesting gluten she went from crazy temper tantrums that I thought were a normal part of age 3 to a happy easy to please kid. I guess out of laziness and both mine and my husbands family thinking we were nuts and just trying to fallow a trend we brought gluten back. I noticed that when she would ingest gluten it would only take about 4 to 5 hours before her tantrums would start...always about nothing. so tonight after she was calm she said mommy I'm sorry I couldn't stop the mad. After hearing that I started to cry, I feel like I failed her and I continue to do so because I almost have to keep convincing myself that gluten is the culprit. And I try to tell my family that it's not like her behavior is just different its night and day. How long after ingesting gluten do you think behavior changes can be seen. I read all the time how some people have reversed or helped their child behavior and even autism by cutting out certain foods. How can something like gluten or any food alter behavior that quickly and drastically. I'm just trying to get a better understanding and I'm open to any advice. Thank you all so much
  2. My 18 month old is very tiny she is in 1% for weight. She had diarrhea and constipation. Because she is so little the doctor ordered lab work her protein, c3 & c4 are low. So I upped her protein in her diet and they tested for protein in urine and a renal ultrasound. Thankfully her ultrasound came back good and there is no protein & blood in her urine. I feel like we should be going to a gastro doctor or even an immunologist but our pediatrician is sending us to a Kidney doctor. Inceliac can you have low protein and low c3 &c4 should I ask my doctor to send us to gastro? 
  3. My daughter has not been tested yet. She suffers from horrible constipation. A gluten free diet helps, but every now and then something clogs her up again. I know every situation is different but how long after going gluten free did some of you see/feel changes?
  4. We have not got her tested yet....that is our next step. When she is gluten free she does well but every now and then something clogs her up again. It would be nice to have that diagnosis...or not.
  5. So we eat gluten free and I have found that I am totally fine with no gluten. I have found great substitutes and recipes for cookies, cakes and pasta but I NEED PIZZA!!!! Anybody out there know a great recipe or a premade yummy pizza. I have already tried udi's and it was horrible.  Thanks everyone! 
  6. Go to facebook and join the group parents against mirilax. Their advice has helped us tremendously with constipation. We also stopped eating gluten
  7. Did The GI make you do an endoscopy? or anything like that? And once he was gluten free are his symptoms gone? How well does he tolerate corn? I think her constipation could be gone but she is afraid to go, made GI appt but 1 month away. Thanks for the advise!
  8. She doesn't have a bm unless given an enama or senna tea. I think we have been gluten-free long enough but I think the prob now is she is scared to go. I'm trying everything to help her go without using mirilax because that stuff is really bad. But I'm starting to get desperate. I see her everyday having the erge to go and then she fights it. So I feel that her constipation could be gone if she wasn't scared. Made an appt to GI but 1 month away.
  9. Is Corn O.k?

    Thanks everyone!
  10. Almost every gluten free product has corn in it. I'm starting to wonder if too much corn is making my toddlers constipation worse....Does anybody else have a prob with corn?
  11. Whats the best tasting gluten free bread out there? Also does corn bother anybody else???
  12. It really does, thanks for your sympathy. I guess thats why I am trying to educate myself as best I can.
  13. Is nail biting a common celiac symptom? Sorry new and toddler might have celiac...still in the process of figuring it out. She bites her nails like crazy, also has chronic horrible constipation, low iron horrible tooth decay and snot looking stuff in her poop.
  14. O.k so I know the best thing to do is bring my baby to a GI dr. but after talking it over with her primary we decided before she goes through any crazy tests we should try a gluten free diet. My poor baby has been constipated since she was 8 months old we have tried everything from  senna, prunes, tons of juice & enama's all of which relieve the constipation at the time of use but it always comes back. To make a long story short she  also has low iron and she has horribe tooth enamel...oh and there is always snotty looking stuff in her very hard very large poop.  2 months ago (when we discovered her tooth decay) we cut out sugar and gluten or anything that would stick to her teeth or turn into sugar and after about 2 weeks of that her constipation was gone for the first time ever......slowly I started giving her pasta and pancakes like once or twice a week....and for a few weeks she was still pooping fine till all of a sudden after adding gluten back in she is constipated again. Thats why her dr. suggested we try cutting out gluten and see if thats really it.... My heart is breaking we have only been gluten free for about a week  this time and there is no changes I know it takes longer then that..I am writing this because is there anybody else out there with a similar story...Everyday I question her symptoms and compare them to everything I read on line. I though maybe it could be yeast then I though maybe she has something wrong with her spine...I know time will tell but It's hard to see my baby struggle to poop....does this sound like anybody else???? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
