Toddler Threw Up Two Hours After Gluten.
0

4 posts in this topic

Okay I have a gluten intolerant (never went through with the testing) and my daughter (3.5) has pretty much textbook celiac signs- but never officially diagnosed, as she was only 2 at the time and was gluten free during the test. But her little sister, who is two, Has been gluten free since we went gluten free because I planned to "test" her by giving her some after a while of none but have been to scared too. So she has been gluten free since April of this year. Today at lunch my older two daughters (who CAN have gluten) had bread at the meal which is rare, as we NEVER have gluten in our house.....But the little one kept reaching for it and crying so I gave her three or four bites. She refused anymore after that. Since she has thrown up.....and has only thrown up maybe twice in the past year, she does NOT have a weak stomach. Should i say it was the gluten or what?

two hours after?

Could it be a bug? If she has a fever,i'd say bug, but i'd look into it as a gluten issue as well.

Trust your instincts! And trust your kiddo! I have a Celiac daughter who is our "Celiac Sniffer." She can tell if something is cross contaminated...she lifts it to her lips but won't eat it...

Thinking of you!

Funny that you say that, because we have actually tried to get her to eat gluten before and she refused. I make pancakes and biscuits (gluten free) once a week or so and she LOVES them and begs for them. Well my mom (after I told her too) tried to give her some pancakes with gluten (not at our house) and she opened her mouth but spit it out IMMEDIATELY Then mom tried some biscuit and she refused to open her mouth. But kept eating her green beans and carrots that were on her plate....So it wasn't that she wasn't hungry, she was begging for more, but refused the gluten food.

She is actually like normal except for that. No fever and ate good later that day. Actually ate more than usual which worried me even more, as I have a tendency to be STARVING after my gluten reaction. I don't usually throw up though. Usually I have horrible cramps and upset stomach that follows. (as far as GI reactions)

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
