Does Anyone Know Of A Forum For Food Allergys Linked With Behavior?

I just don't know what to do for the school year. Do I try to allow it to be fed to him in moderation or just say he can't have it period? He gets mean and has no self control when he eats it. Grandma fed him a big slurpy that was red today and when they got home, I knew something was wrong by his behavior. If you know of a forum dealing with this that could hel me, please let me know. Thanks.

Have you ever had him tested? My friends daughter is allergic to Red dye and it started as behaviour issue's and turned quickly into anaphalactic allergy? I think the older the girl got the more she ingested and they became aware of the reaction more obviously.

How do I get him tested for food dye? Two days ago he went into an itch session for hours with an itchy mouth driving him nuts with lots of crying. We didn't know what it was from. He was sweeping leaves right before. So we think it was some kind of allergy to plants. We are going to ask for an epipen to be on the safe side.

There aren't proteins in food dyes, so it isn't technically an "allergy" but an intolerance. Most traditional Dr's won't test for them but you may be able to find a Do or Chiro who would test for them.

Dye "allergies"

You might check out the Feingold Diet website. They know a lot about kids and food chemical sensitivities. http://www.feingold.org/

Fedupwithfoodadditives.com is an excellent site. You may find he is allergic or intolerant to other foods too...like salicylates...and that would then add in yellow food coloring, tartrazine, annatto, and the benzoates which are in almost all carbonated flavored pop and in some juices too.

My son and I have Celiac/Gluten Intolerance in addition to the Salicylates intolerance. Red and yellow food dyes are awful...He gets asthma...I get hives...both of us get bad moods.

Keep eliminating and exploring. You will figure it out.

NO...I would not let the teacher give him treats with red food coloring. He will be miserable and so will everyone around him. If it effects his moods, it will also effect his relationships with people...and that would not be worth saving the school teacher the inconvenience of giving it to him. Good luck, it is really hard to figure all this stuff out...but once you do then you know what to avoid and your life can be better and so can his!

My husband wants him to have it because he does not realize how bad he behaves when he has it. The teachers usually pass out the cup cakes right out the door or the last 5 minutes of class. So they don't experience the behavior. I approached the school last yr and they don't want to change anything. Holliday parties are super out of hand. Every mom brings a cake and they are all served. The teachers leave it up to the parents and take no responsibility for it. Two wonderful parents took a responsible approach in dd's class with parties, not so in son's class. Thanks for listening.

I'd at least like the teacher to tell me when he is served a cup cake and the colors and in a perfect world she'd tell me the day before what is being brought so I could plan accordingly. The teacher last yr refused. Lets pray for a better year. I have a signed medical note in his file for food dyes and sugar. What are my rights and how do I learn what they are? I am in CA?

I think you will have to get "mean". If it is in his file at school that he can't have this, and his teacher refuses to see to it that he doesn't, he/she is courting a lawsuit for himself, and for the school. If you just tell him AND the school administation that, I bet you'll see results!

Our approach when the kids are in that kind of setting is to put it in writing and only allow our kid to have food from home. You should be able to get a list of party days from the teacher and send him a treat he can have.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
