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. :(

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
