I don't know where it would of come from, but I'm pretty sure I fed him gluten somewhere. Yesterday evening he was complaining his tummy hurt followed by nasty poops before bed. This morning, still pooping...

His food for the day:

Breakfast - leaping lemurs
Snack - oj, banana, gluten-free cookie
Lunch - sandwich made from homemade brown rice bread, gluten-free sandwich meat, cheese slice.
Snack - apples
Supper - gluten-free sausage, carrots, minute rice make with gluten-free chicken stock and gluten-free soya sauce

The only place I can think of is the bread I made (which was a flop btw, but he liked it so who am I to judge) or the minute rice. Crap!

I know it's tough - but try not to be hard on yourself. The reality is this will happen again and you may never figure out what causes each reaction. All you can do is try each day to limit the possibility of exposure.

It is possible he is becoming more sensitive to cross contamination, but I wouldn't jump to the bread. Just make sure the bread pan has no scratches and was cleaned well before baking gluten-free bread.

Sometimes the healing gut will react to something other than gluten. Was this the first time he had the either the cereal, gluten-free cookie or the gluten free sausage? Even gluten-free processed foods can be hard on his healing system.

Playing detective during the first months is tough - period.

Hang in there :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Could have nothing to do with gluten at all! Maybe he was a bit constipated and had a lot that needed to come out? Could be a bit of a stomach bug, could be another food he ate, could be the grass he ate when you weren't looking in the backyard.... You get the idea. You may never know what bothered him. Doesn't make it your fault.

Just noticed; What was he drinking? Maybe it bothered him, even unrelated to gluten?

Nope, he's had all those products at least once since his dx. All I can think of is the bread. I made it in the bread machine. I made sure to wash it well,but in all reality, it is old. It was a hand me down from my mom, but I thought it was safe. Or even maybe an ingredient in the bread. I'll have to go back and look again

Might be the dairy in the cheese or the soy. Many of us react to these things. With me, the first few weeks I was fine with corn for example, and then three weeks in I started to react to it, so even if he was fine with dairy and soy at first, he might be reacting to them now.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Good gosh, I hope it isn't the dairy! Much of the kids diet is dairy based. He drinks a lot of milk. I don't buy juice...ever. Except for pure orange on a rare occasion or for PreK.

I say it was the bread machine, especially if he's had dairy and whatnot before. Been there done that and got a post card from CC from a bread machine -_-
