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.

    • Couldn't have said it better!  
    • If you are going for an endoscopy, then please ask for a celiac antibodies COMPLETE panel.  This will help you determine if you have been diet compliant (zapped by hidden sources of gluten or accidental cross contamination) and if your doctor misses the (possible) damaged areas during the procedure.    That way you can rule out celiac disease and THEN worry about the possibility of other AI issues.   I did this last summer.  I got really sick.  My GI thought SIBO right off the bat.  But I asked just to be tested for celiac disease.  Sure enough, I had elevated antibodies.  No need to test for SIBO or anything else at that point.  I just waited a few months for symptoms to subside.   Good Luck to you!  
    • That's good Megan, that you were tested.  Many people have the genes, but only some develop the disease.  Your doctor is right about celiac often appearing after some kind of physical stress or illness. The tricky thing about eliminating one food is that you body may be reacting to multiple foods.  So not getting better could mean you just eliminated one problem instead of 3. It's not unusual to have digestion issues for quite a while after going gluten-free.  Our guts are damaged and that damage has to heal.  But it can't heal until the immune system stops it's attack.  The immune system attack/reaction can keep going for weeks to months.  So it can be a slow recovery.  Often people report getting better and then getting worse and going back and forth on symptoms. What doesn't help is that our bacteria in our guts can get really screwed up by the disease process.  We can't properly digest things so there is more undigested food for bacteria to thrive on.  Avoiding sugars and carbs can help with that issue. Here are some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months.  Some of these you have already taken care of: Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
      Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
      Don't eat in restaurants
      Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
      Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
      Take probiotics.
      Take gluten-free vitamins.
      Take digestive enzymes.
      Avoid dairy if it causes symptoms.
      Avoid sugars and starchy foods. They can cause bloating.
      Avoid alcohol.

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
