3 Yr Old Vomiting
0

3 posts in this topic

I suspect my 3 year old daughter has gluten intolerance. I discovered my GI 5 months ago, and have been eliminating gluten in my diet - our family is also severely lactose intolerant and we never eat dairy. This last month however, she has been complaining of stomach aches every time she poops - though she does not have diarrhea, weight loss, or look sick. Her BM's are solid and normal. I have been cutting out the gluten in her diet, like wheat bread in her lunches, and switching her to my gluten-free bread. Worried, we took her to the doc for a blood test, which came back negative (I expected this), and he gave no further advice on what to do.

The other night, I fed her organic chicken nuggets, which were breaded, and didn't think too much of it, but she ended up vomiting it all up 6 hours later. She only threw up once, so I figured it wasn't the flu. Then two days later, we went to Grandma's and she ate some smarties and candy that they gave her, plus 2 juice boxes (I never give her this much junk!). I am pretty sure they weren't gluten free, and she ended up with a HUGE distended stomach and vomited a startling amount an hour later. She did not have a fever, sweats or chills like with the flu, and a 30 minutes after she threw up, she was her happy, bubbly self again.

What is going on? Is it possible for her to react to gluten with vomiting? Has this happened to anyone else? I am not sure what my next step is to help my little girl. PLEASE HELP!

Yes, it is quite possible to react with vomiting. My sister did a gluten free experiment with her children. She didn't think she saw any results on adding gluten back. But one child vomited immediately after eating a gluten filled meal. Hmm suspicious. They call it the 24 hour bug at their house...but it happens so often that I think it is gluten intolerance. You are right to be suspicious. You could eliminate it entirely and see if she improves. You can always do a challenge later if you want to, but it sounds like she would benefit from being gluten free. I'm still working on my sister. ;):huh:

Yes it is possible for Celiacs to vomit. Children seem to vomit more than adults with Celiac. (It may be one of the reasons they thought children "outgrew" Celiac because they were no longer vomitting right after eating gluten.)

    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.   
    • Hello we got her biopsy results back and they are normal.  The doc is calling her non celiac gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant.  Now we will just wait to see if the gluten-free diet helps her.  She does have elevated IgG to casein and wheat  I know there is controversy on whether that test is helpful or not but either way we are hoping she gets well going gluten-free    
    • My family was out camping earlier this month to our favorite lake.  They have a restaurant there we have going to for years.  Since I recently went gluten free, I was very nervous about trying out their menu.  Usually, restaurants have a select few items you can choose from that are considered "gluten-free" (i.e. Olive Garden).  However, this restaurant even had French Fries that were in a separate fryer than the rest of fry population.  I considered it a huge treat when they not only went out of their way to make sure you could get sandwiches gluten-free, but also had French fries and a dessert available.  The best part of it was I didn't get sick afterwards.  Yahoo!  Thank goodness it's 3 hours away.
    • too many of us are treated this way, unfortunately   ^^^^^  and many of us have been in the same (no quality of life!  always sick! )  situation and yes, it can be life threatening if left untreated.  so glad you're feeling better   no thanks to the almighty doctor  i have a celiac diagnosis and my g.p. (who i go to - or used to go to - for my check ups, see how my blood pressure is, vitamin levels, etc.  normal maintenance, you know) tried to give me viberzi!!  for my ibs-d !!  what???  i have celiac.  i was furious!!  (i'm still pretty upset)   o, the good news was that he gave me a coupon for the first month.  after that, it's THIRTY DOLLARS A MONTH.   not to mention all the lovely side effects (one of them was diarrhea!!)   no, thanks, buddy....   anyways, rant over lolz - welcome to the forum!
    • Those numbers are all perfect meaning they show you likely don't have celiac.  Those tests are very accurate IF you are eating a normal diet of gluten.  You must be eating gluten for weeks prior to this testing.  So if you have not been then yes these results are not accurate.
