Update On "drunken" Symptoms In 3 Year Old.
0

9 posts in this topic

Purely by accident, I believe I have discovered what was causing my daughter's drunken symptoms explained in a previous post. OATS.  We had been having certified gluten free oatmeal every morning for quite some time, and then just happened to run out. 3 days after not eating it for breakfast I realized the loopy behavior seemed to be diminishing. We are going to give it more time to see if things continue to improve, but I am quite hopeful that this is the ticket, and my daughter is one of those 20% of celiacs that also reacts to oats. I hope this discovery can help someone else that someday might experience the same, so I wanted to update.

I've used two brands one is prOatina and one is the Bob's red mill, both are certified gluten-free however apparently 20% of celiacs react to oat protein in and of itself and I think that is what's going on here.

I'm glad you may possibly have it figured out. It stinks that it's another food you have to cut....but awesome that it isn't something more serious.

So glad it isn't something more serious. The possibilities with those symptoms were positively scary! And hey, there are worse things to live without than oats. It's doubtful that she'll remember her oatmeal mornings and there are other hot cereals she should be able to have if you want to keep giving her hot cereal with winter fast approaching. (Or already here depending on where you live.)

 

A lot of people (me included) like Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal, although to be honest I'm not sure on whether or not it's oat safe because of possible CC. A quick email or call should be able to let you know. And there is a ton you can do with grits to make it appealing to kids her age.

 

Anywho, gratz on figuring it out and on it being something so minor and not a major medical issue. That is such great news. :)

Interesting!  Due to a mistake on my part, I now know that oats make me itch all over.  gluten-free or otherwise.

Amazing. Glad you figured it out. Some days I feel like life is a jigsaw puzzle, if you keep looking - eventually the pieces will fit.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
