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.

    • My DH was diagnosed with celiac disease several months ago and I was just getting a handle on baking again, turning out gluten free quick breads, muffins, biscuits, breads and cakes like a champ when.....more allergies. Now we are gluten free, dairy free, egg free.....and rice free. Yikes. I've converted to almond and coconut milk, that was a breeze. Vegan egg substitute just made its way into the house for baking and I have high hopes, though I haven't used it yet.  I need a gluten free flour blend that doesn't contain rice flour. On hand I have oat, coconut, sorghum, fufu and amaranth flours, potato starch, corn starch, and xanthan gum. I need a mix that will use what I have on hand, and that will work for quick breads like banana and pumpkin bread.  Anyone have a recipe that has worked for them in the past?
    • Thankyou so much that's really helpful I did wonder about dairy as I seem to bloat a little after a coffee with milk
    • Love your attitude - it will really help you going forward (I was you three years ago...) Don't be surprised as time goes on if you have a lull in your fortitude.  Every once in a while I see (or smell!) a food I really miss, or have an accidental glutening that sets me back, or someone that doesn't understand my issues and thinks I'm a faddist.  I've learned to let myself have a sulk and a pity party and then move on.   Good luck!
    • Hi Natalie, That sounds like how it often goes after beginning the gluten-free diet.  We'd like to think that it would be steady progress in the up direction but it seems like our healing goes back and forth a little.  The immune system reaction takes a while to settle down, weeks to months.  So it is hard for the gut to heal while that reaction is going on. It's helpful to eat simple foods at first and avoid dairy.  Processed foods including baked goods are best left on the shelf.  Try to eat whole foods only including meats, vegetables and nuts.  Carbs and sugar are not helpful. Things should get better after a month or two if your diet is clean of gluten and diary.  Then you can try adding things back in slowly one item a week. Peppermint tea can help with bloating.  Probiotics may help too. Welcome to the forum!
    • like I said I am new and just learning ...   Is Mirlax gluten free
