Question About Tummy Aches
0

5 posts in this topic

When someone has Celiac Disease and consumes gluten, do they typically get a reaction immediately or could it occur several hours later? For example, last night my daughter (not diagnosed) woke up in the middle of the night because she had a bad tummy ache. She is not gluten-free; she had had a hamburger roll with dinner around 6:00.

Still trying to piece together the puzzle,

Jennifer M.

Yes you can have a reaction to gluten 30min to 12 hours later. Sometimes I have an immediate reaction especially now that I am gluten-free but before I was dx I could eat bread and not have a reaction until the next morning but other things like croutons, spices from french fries at Outback, I would have a reaction VERY quickly!

I hope your daughter is feeling better and gets a dx soon!

The delayed reaction is what takes people (and their doctors) so long to figure out that it is gluten that is causing their reaction. For me it is usually the next day, or late at night if it was something I ate in the morning.

God bless,

When I was younger I used to have farina a lot...and I would eat the meal, then run to the bathroom 30 min. to 2 hours after finishing, throw up, and then feel fine.

In the past few years, I didn't have anymore of that, and therefore, I had no immediate symptoms. Rather, I'd eat gluten all week and then get sick towards the end of the week....cramping and vomiting. Other symptoms such as bloating and gas were constant, and diarrhea wasn't a major issue...it came every now and then, but not enough to really disrupt everything. My delayed reactions were a contributing factor in not finding celiac disease in me for a time....after all, I couldn't connect it with any particular food since my symptoms didn't come immediately after eating a bagel, doughnut, sandwich....etc.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
