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 -_-

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
