Celiac Questions

2 posts in this topic

My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease 2 years ago and I am still trying to figure out all the do's and don'ts. It was hard enough learning how to cook and buy the right foods but trying to understand something that I personally can't feel is hard. My daughter tells me what is going on and I try to help her even though I have no idea what to do. 

Recently she has been waking up feeling hot with stomach cramps and will sometime throw up and have to use the restroom. It will eventually ease off after I have her put a little food in her to see if her stomach is just looking for food. I am not sure if this is something that is considered normal with celiac disease or not. I was able to get the doctor to give her some sample meds to see if it could be acid building up overnight in her making her feel this way. 

I have a lot of questions and I am just looking for help with things to help my daughter or the right questions to ask the doctor to see what can be done. I hate that my child is hurting and I have no way of helping. Any information would be greatly appreciated

Tell us more. How old is she? Do you live in a gluten-free house? Does she have her own toaster, condiments, cookware? She might be getting cross-contamination from any of these. If she is a youngster, she may be getting exposed at school, either from her friends, from Play-Doh, or even from something her teacher has her doing.

 

If you read the Newbie 101 thread you will learn a lot about the places gluten can hide. I suspect though that if she has been gluten-free for two years and is only now starting with these  stomach problems that there is something new causing it.

 

Or she just might have a "bug".

 

Either way, it sounds like you are having some problems learning about how to keep her gluten-free. You came to the right place! After reading Newbie 101, check out other threads, especially the breakfast lunch and dinner threads.

 

Welcome, and feel free to ask lots of questions. We're here to help. :)

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
