Why Is She Still Getting Tummy Aches?

12 posts in this topic

My daughter, nearly 7 y.o. has been diagnosed Celiacs.  She is gluten free for 6 months now.  She's still complaining, probably every other day, that her tummy hurts!  Her bloodwork came back perfect last time and there were no Celiac markers.  How long does it really take to get out of her system?  Unless she's getting containinated at school, I have no idea why this is still happening?  Any thoughts?

Is she still consuming milk based products? From what I've read Celiac's have some issue with milk for a while. I've restricted my 6 year old's milk/cheese intake because he was still getting tummy aches too.

Also...if she was having constipation issues that might still be lingering as well. I know we're still using Miralax and doing cleanses every other weekend per the GI doc. We just had his 3 month check up a couple weeks ago and she says he's still pretty full.

 

So, I would give that a try. Eliminate/restrict her milk intake for a couple weeks and see if that helps.

She has been congested, right? Spitting? Eliminate all forms of milk for a while.

My 7yr son was the same - got much better on gluten-free diet but 6 months later was back to stomach pain, we eliminated most dairy & the pain & other issues (he was also having constipation & often had burning red ears) went away. We arent crazy strict as we are with gluten- he can tolerate a little now (8 months later) such as an occassional gluten-free pizza or Slice Of Cheese or a yogurt (i add in a probiotic) but staying clear of milk & icecream.

This is what we're going through, too. My 8yo stays home at least once a month (this is an earlier thread). I think we're going to try removing dairy, but I do have to speak to him about this. He has never resisted removing gluten. I think he would resist moving dairy. He was not lactose intolerant according to the test. (We know it could be casein-intolerance.) Anyway, it makes him feel too different (plus, no one would know what to feed him on playdates if not for yogurt, cheese sticks, etc.) I would like to try, though, as it's the most likely culprit.

 

Good luck! I hope you figure it out!

We didn't have to remove it entirely from my little guy's diet. Though, obviously if it's a casein issue, that's different. We just restricted his intake. He is allowed to have one small cup (I have some of those tiny juice glasses that are about 4oz) with one meal either breakfast or supper. The other meal he gets some kind of juice and any other time he is to drink water. He used to eat a lot of cheese but judging by how this is going...I think he knows that was upsetting his stomach too because he doesn't ask for cheese at all any more. Once a week he will have a lunch though that has ham wrapped around a piece of string cheese and there are occasionally meals that have some shredded cheese added and we had pizza several times this last week due to my niece and nephew being in town and us doing things until late. :) This is quite a bit less than he was having before, especially since I cut his milk to that once a day although I don't restrict it as an ingredient in other things. He does eat yogurt as well....probably increased that a little bit. We rarely eat ice cream here as it makes me violently ill and little guy will bounce off the walls like a crazy person for hours if he eats more than a couple bites!

 

Good luck figuring out the milk thing. I was leery of removing milk too but it seems to be helping....maybe I'll work my way into a complete removal but it isn't looking like I need to right now.

My son was diagnosed at age 10 and had the same problem.  We reduced processed foods and that helped.  Eliminating processed corn and soy products was particularly helpful.  I hope that she feels better soon.

Ok - this might be way off - but is your child taking iron supplements? My son was recently diagnosed and was also very anemic. He was put on iron supplements as well as miralax after diagnosis.He was still complaining of stomach aches though and having diahriea....and I finally figured out it was the iron supplement giving the tummy aches and diahria! Just figured it was worth a thought to consider EVERYTHING.

A food journal might help you figure it out. It could be something that appears harmless like apples, pears, or rice... although my first guess would be milk too.

 

Good luck.  :)

My child kept complaining and the doctor had me give her Lacaid everytime she had diary.  That worked wonders.  We did not have to eliminate it and she no longer has to take it.  She probably took it for 6 months.   Jennifer

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      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.
