First Gluten Accident?
0

4 posts in this topic

My son started throwing up/dh yesterday afternoon, he was dx 12/03 and we've never had a gluten accident so I'm assuming that's what this is -- he didn't ingest anything non-gluten-free yesterday, and everything was food he had had before, but I don't know what else it could be. (He doesn't seem sick - no temp, etc.) Can you develop a sensitivity to "maybe" foods as you recover? I ask, because I know he had some m&ms at a friends house and while those are technically gluten-free I see lots of people seem to react to them. He never has before, but....

But he even threw up water, so now he's npo for a while. Do we start back on regular gluten-free diet today, or would you suggest treating this more like the flu, and start with clears, then a BRAT-type diet, etc.? He has other conditions that might be the problem, but I've no way to tell what happened. (And THAT is DRIVING me NUTS! I want a little diagnostic panel to pop open on his head that says "by the way, my med levels are too low to control the AE" or "Did I mention I ate off my brother's plate?")

Thanks in advance~

Are you SURE it's not just a bug? I'm in VT and it's going around here wicked right now. I know 6 kids that are out with vomiting, diarrhea, etc... and it's just a virus that's going around. Can't wait to get it! ;-) hahaha.... This seems to be lasting about a week.

Yeah, could be a bug... our family just got over a horrible bug. The kids acted fine but would just throw up spontaneously. Sometimes they would keep food down just fine, other times they would throw it up. This happened off and on for a week or so.

No, I'm not sure it isn't a bug -- he's on immunosuppressants, so that's always a possibility (he picks up stuff that other people might carry, but be asymptomatic). But he doesn't have a temp, or any other symptoms, and he hasn't been in school for days. Yeesh. Today is better though-- he kept everything in, so that's good. "Everything" was water, and late in the day he had some chicken and rice. Thanks for the input, it helps...

    • 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 in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from 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! 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??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
