Do You Give Anything To Help Ease Pain When Glutened?
0

10 posts in this topic

My DD has been gluten-free for a couple of weeks now and I wanted to ask if your child has been glutened or is having symptoms do you give them anything to help. There have been a few times when DD is complaining of her stomach hurting but she hasn't had any gluten that I can think of. We are attending a family birthday party this weekend and so I am trying to prepare myself for a " what if" instance. I do keep snacks with me that she could have but was wondering if anyone has a kept secret...lol to help get over the pain.

I used to take Gas Rx and ibuprofin myself. I hope someone else can help.

Honestly, if its gluten causing the pain I sleep it off. It's the best fix. After that, I've found exercise burns it out of me. Bit she's a child and she may feel differently.

I usually treat the symptom. For me, if my stomach hurts its acid...and I live French fries for it. Or a loaded baked potato.

But she may get low acid so she may need betaine hcl.

Everyone's different. Generally, probiotics and antacids help people. As well as digestive enzymes.

This evening I made a rice and chicken dish for dinner. We eat plain yogurt with our rice as a side dish with and today was the first time I bought Dannon plain yogurt. That was the only thing that she had that was different, I have made this dish a million times and she doesn't complain from it. Today afer dinner about 45 minutes after she had severe stomache pains and diareha. Her pains were so bad they kept her crying for about an hour. I gave her some children's pepto not to sure if they helped or not, but OMG I don't know what happened or if it could of been the yogurt. It doesn't have any gluten in it.

She may have a temporary or permanent problem with milk: lactose or casein. Many Celiacs can't tolerate milk in one or both forms. Sometimes it's permanent, other times temporary. You may try taking her off milk products and trying them again in a few months.

It isn't unusual to have other food intolerances, unfortunately. They can be temporary or permanent. Sometimes, after the gut heals you are able to reintroduce the food.

I don't think milk is the issue, she always has cereal, cheese, rice pudding, etc., and no issues with those. My only other thing would be the different brand of yogurt. Thanks for your input though I appreciate it.

Start a food and symptom journal, and keep the label from any food she may have reacted to. Once you have a few episodes start comparing labels of what she's had in the last 24 hours. I say 24 because we are known to react up to 24 hours.

Also, you may try her on digestive enzymes with meals, if she isn't on them already. It will hep break down her food. I use Digest Gold.

Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint what the problem is. And sometimes it's just a part if healing - random stomach aches. Along with 100 other things, unfortunately.

Hang in there.

What about for lunch? Breakfast? What was she exposed to during the day? Is there a stomach bug going around where you are? Was the chicken fully cooked?

Sometimes, tracking down a culprit requires big-picture thinking, and sometimes, it's impossible.

Papaya enzymes. If it gets really bad and she starts vomitting, we have Zofran which can nip it in the bud.

    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home.
