Pretty Sure I Glutenized (?) My Son...
0

7 posts in this topic

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 :)

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.

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 -_-

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      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.
