After All That- Not Reacting.
0

4 posts in this topic

So if you don't remember- tried gluten challenge about a month ago and ended up in the ER the first day.  HUGE reaction.

 

Fast forward a pediatrician's visit, allergist visit (all negative), and a gastro visit, we are doing another gluten challenge with less gluten.  Endoscopy scheduled for June 27th with blood tests.

 

So we start out small with just a few whole grain goldfish...and her skin starts to react immediately.  Her skin reactions continue for 2 days along with pale/stinky poop and stomach aches......then it all stops.  There are a few spots of eczema that are worse than normal, but not extreme.  I'm noticing some mood swings, but again, nothing extreme and nothing compared to the week after the ER visit.  We have increased her gluten intake over the past few days to no dietary restrictions. 

 

What gives??!!  I mean, I'm grateful that the 2 weeks have yet to be miserable, and I would give anything for a miracle and her intolerance suddenly vanish.  Part of me is really scared there is internal damage going on we can't see :(  Anyone else with this experience?

My DS had no gut issues when on gluten. It was a zero Vit. D level that put us on the path to Celiac.

 

Be grateful that you aren't in the ER and that you'll have a scope with (hopefully) answers.  Was there positive bloodwork?

I am!!  I actually had her sleep with us (she never does) the first night we added gluten back in (a whole 18 goldfish over the course of the day, lol!) because she threw up in her crib after the ER visit and we didn't know it until morning :(  I felt terrible!  

 

No, blood work will be drawn when they do the scope. The GI didn't want her on gluten very long since she had such a strong reaction before.  He said it sounds like Celiac to him- I had asked him what he felt the sx's were due to, Celiac or some other 'non celiac gluten intolerance.'  He gave us the option to do the genetics test, then only do the gluten challenge if the genetics test was positive, but her blood would have to be sent to CA (from SC), and my husband didn't want to delay the results that could actually diagnose her since the GI felt it was Celiac.  They are going to do 3 Celiac blood tests (I can't remember now which ones), a CBC panel, and an anemia test (she has a love of ice).

    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Do you have celiac disease?  This is a celiac forum and that's what we are most knowledgeable about. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Amalgam fillings do not have lead that I know.  What you read was probably mercury.  You could have them removed, but only by a dentist who has the knowledge and skill.   I think you need to do some more research so that you can make an informed decision. I wish you well. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Welcome! Go ahead and rant!  Scream and holler!  Weep.  It is totally normal to go through a grieving process.  We have all been there!  You are NOT alone! When you pick yourself off the floor, start researching.  Learn about the gluten free diet.  Start with easy-to-digest foods that are naturally gluten free (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, etc.).  You may have to give up dairy for a short time until your villi heal (the villi tips release enzymes that help digest lactose (milk sugars).  Skip all the processed foods until you are improving.  That will give yourself time to forget what bread really tastes like.  Avoid eating out for a few months -- it's easy to get cross contamination.  Best to explain your gluten-free needs when you, yourself, "get it".  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" for valuable tips.   You can go out and drink with your friends.  You might have to avoid alcohol for a few months.  But when healed you can drink!  Just no beers, malted beverages.  Most distilled liquor (e.g. volka) is gluten free.   So, is wine.  Skip the gluten free beer for a long time.   Find other celiacs in your area.  In the meantime, visit with us.  It does get better.        
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Hi everyone, I'm going through some health issues right now and when searching for possible causes of my symptoms and blood test results, I see lead poissoning popping up quite a few times. Now, I have many amalgam fillings in my mouth since childhood, so naturally I'm thinking if that might play a role and if removing them would make a difference. But from what I read online removing the amalgam fillings is not recommended and does not bring any health benefits. I have mixed feelings about this issue and would really appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance for any comments. Greetings from Mexico. :-)

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
