Gluten Ingestion And Vomiting
0

4 posts in this topic

I think my daughter had cereal with gluten on Monday. The next day she was extremely irritable,behaving weird, had headaches etc. Today (Friday) she out of the blue vomited (on a sidewalk by a store!). I am wondering if this would be a result of the gluten? I don't think she has had any gluten since being diagnosed and going gluten-free so I am not sure what her normal reaction would be. Is 4 days too long after the ingestion to get sick like that? SHe threw up twice on the sidewalk and has been fine since. Thanks for your help :)

It's possible, but I would think that if she was going to throw up from the gluten, she would have done it sooner than 5 days after the fact. Reactions can be delayed, but in this particular case I'm more inclined to think she may have had some kind of virus. I know your daughter is young and little kids have funny ways of reacting to being sick. I would guess that she's had something going on since she started with the headache and everything.

Do you have any other reason to believe she had glutenous cereal besides the fact that she wasn't feeling well? As I said, some people have longer time-frame reactions but I would have expected the vomiting to come sooner.

She ate marshmallow pebbles which we thought was gluten-free but realized after this box did not say gluten-free anywhere. We got the wrong one I guess and I assume that this one isn't gluten free.

The last time I got glutened and knew it, nothing at all happened for 24 hours...I thought I was darn lucky. The second day I felt tired and sluggish but nothing terrible. The third day I got a horrible migraine...the fourth day I actually threw up, had deression, anxiety, and D. I was shocked at how bad I felt. The fifth day I had D but no headache and two days later was able to feel normal again. Wow! The longer I am gluten free the worse the reaction I get when I get glutened. It is very possible it takes that many days to react to gluten. I wouldn't have believed it if it didn't happen to me. I know she is a child, but I have to think it is definitely possible for that reaction to be that delayed. Others have written of such delayed reactions too. I probably would have thought I had the flu if it had not been for the fact that I clearly knew I made a mistake and ate one bite of a product with wheat as an ingredient...my god...now I read twice and have my son check the ingredients too before I eat anything. Good luck to you. Trace gluten is awful.

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      I don't have scotomas but you might find more help on a forum dedicated to vision issues.  Here are a couple I found.  the last link is a Yahoo search for "eye forum"  There may be others found if you try a search on Google. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Eye-Care/show/90 http://www.healthboards.com/boards/eye-vision/ https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=eye+forum&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-003
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      BTW, all first degree relatives of celiacs are supposed to be tested for celiac every 2 years in the absence of symptoms -- immediately if symptoms present. Your kids, your parents & all siblings should be tested. And that goes for your brothers kids too.
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
