Hi All

My daughter has been getting better since being on a gluten/wheat/dairy free diet for the last six weeks but this weekend she has had a bit of tummy ache and feeling sick, the only different foods she has eaten is McCains microwave chips (ingredients - potatoes and sunflower oil) some polo mints and some tic tacs (I thought these were all ok - I have also been feeling a bit off colour last couple of days (I am not on a gluten diet) and don't know whether she has just caught a bug like any normal child does. Can anyone tell me if the above foods are ok, I have tried to find out on internet but to no avail.

Also, I have read a lot of topics on here where people say their Acid Reflux and Asthma greatly improve on a gluten free diet but I have noticed my daughter still has these symptons and they seem to be worse than ever, she is taking 15mg of Lansoprazole before her evening meal and although it is better I know adults that take 50mg and tell me it works, she has never been diagnosed with acid reflux but the doctor prescribed these after we explained the symptons. She is also constantly complaining of a tight chest, Asthma nurse last week said it could be a mixture of everything (very helpful!!!)

We do have an appointment at the childrens hospital on 23rd May which I arranged back in March when she was really ill so hopefully will get some answers then but in the meantime if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Found this at the Tic Tac site:

Tic TacŪ mints do not contain any ingredients derived from gluten-containing cereals: wheat, barley, rye, oats or triticale.

Your daughter just could have a bug or something else is bothering her. And as you know, reflux and asthma can have any number of causes. Going gluten-free won't necessarily cure them.

Thank you for looking for me, I couldn't find anything. I do think it was a bug, I think you just automatically assume it is food related, but she has felt better tonight.

Once again thanks,
