Frequent Regurgitation, gluten-free For 2 Years
0

3 posts in this topic

Please help? My daughter (10), was diagnosed with Celiac 2 years ago, and has been eating Gluten Free ever since.

She has gone great for the last two years, her symptoms all dissappeared. But for some reason for the last 2 months,

she has been having frequent regurtitation, 2-3 times a week. Just small amounts, along with upset tummy.

I know everything she is eating is gluten free, and there has been no cross contamination.

At first we thought it was acid reflux, but she was put on an acid reducing medicine, and it hasnt gotten any better.

Is this something normal for Celiac sufferers? This was one of her symptoms of Celiac before she was diagnosed,

but it has been gone for 2 years, and is now showing up again. Is it just part of the disease, or should I push the Dr further?

Has anyone else experienced frequent regurgitation, even while eating gluten-free?

Thank you!

Hi Megan's Mommy,

I used to have that problem fairly often even after going gluten-free. Sometimes I wouldn't be able to swallow food or it would come back up after a short while. I had to eliminate some other foods before it stopped. I also had problems with H. Pylori repeatedly. If the antacids aren't helping, please take her off them. Low stomach acid can let H. Pylori and other undesireable pathogens survive and thrive. That's not good for anyone.

You may need to put her on an elimination diet. Dairy is a likely problem, but so are the other top allergens. Nightshades, soy, corn, eggs, and others are reported as problems by people on the forum.

There are a few usual suspects for this...

H. Ployri

parasites

hernia

Eosinophilic Esophagitus

(I can't remember the full list)

Get back into the Pediatric Gastro ASAP! You want to diagnose and fix what is going on.

This is exactly how my daughter who was diagnosed Celiac at 17 months old, gluten free diet for a little over 4 years, symptoms started late summer/fall was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitus when she was 6 years old. ( You have to get a scope done before an airborne "trigger" might not be active and the damage might heal so you could miss the diagnoses only to have it "flare" again next fall.

    • 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!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
