Anyone Notice Improvement In Behavior Before Improvement Of Other Symptoms?

3 posts in this topic

We are on day 6 of a gluten-free diet. On day 4 I noticed a big improvement in dd's behavior. No big tantrums and she less easily frustrated. Even DH has noticed. I can't really believe what I am seeing and still hesitate to say it is because of the diet change. I will just have to wait and see.

The only thing is so far I haven't noticed any changes in the constipation or reflux issues. could these still improve? Did anyone else notice behavioral changes before digestive changes?

Thanks

Well, behavior was our ONLY symptom, and it changed almost immediately. It was like I had a totally different kid. Once the drastic behavior stopped, other changes were more gradual. (sleep, appetite, growth - things we didn't really notice were off, but they were.)

For me, my symptoms were gradual too. The GI stuff was almost immediate, the brain fog took a few months, GERD symptoms (and medications) were gone within weeks.

My daughter's behavior has not changed a whit since going gluten-free (but she never had major behavior issues in the first place -- just normal kid stuff). But I wanted to chime in to say that it did take the constipation a while to resolve. She's been gluten-free for 6 months now and it's gotten better. But her diet is still very limited (world's pickiest eater) and she is still constipated unless we give her fiber supplements.
