After 'glutened' Do Symptoms Stop Then Come Back?

2 posts in this topic

My son is almost 2 (been gluten-free for 4 mths) and at a playdate a week ago today he found a rouge piece of pizza from my friend's kids' lunch and took a bite. Alas the next morning he work up totally out of it, rolling around on the floor, super super fussy and had NASTY chemically ,not sure how that came out of a human, smelling poop. He didn't poop the next day but was acting normal again. Then on Monday he was back to his normal BM schedule but his poop still smelled chemically, and over the coarse of last week it got better and I thought the reaction was done. Well, this morning he pooped and it was really loose, pale and OH MY HEAVENS barf!! My whole house smells like the chemical poop, my four year old almost started crying, I can still taste it, it's in my nose. Yuck! I've gone over and over how he could have been glutened again but I'm at a loss. We don't keep any food with gluten in our house, we changed out almost all of our cooking equipment & we've been home sick all week.

Does anyone else know what I mean by the chemical smelling poop? I have 3 kids, changed thousands of diapers & I've never experienced it except with him.

Do symptoms of the reaction get better and then get worse?

Could it be he just has bad smelling poop, he didn't eat anything new yesterday except Kettle Cheddar Cheese Chips which say gluten-free right on the label?

I just feel bad for my little guy and his bright red bum. Thanks!

Well, the only thing i can think of is to get him to drink plenty of fluids which should help "flush" his body out. I've heard of some celiacs having a reaction that can last up to a month or so.

Poor guy. :(

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
