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.

    • So, LST my celiac sibling thinks I should see a naturopath to get additional food sensitivity tests. I think this is swell, but expensive for me. He had a panel done and was reacting to some foods he ate the most of. I have reached out to a local allergist and they do food testing but do not accept my insurance. I was going to make some more calls tomorrow. I actually do have mild reactive airway disease too which seems to go hand-in-hand with the allergists. I honestly had no idea, but makes since. What type of tests have folks had? I know I am not allergic to most foods as of November. My former GI doc ran a basic panel then but it seemed short. Has anyone had any luck with these? I read there is a difference between IGE and IGG tests. Anyone get a doc to order them and insurance to cover? I may end up having to save up for awhile to have this done with a naturopath. But I was off of payroll recently with all of this and the idea of waiting for a couple of more months to find out what other foods may be trigging me really sucks. I am off of dairy and soy, suspicious of lettuce and shrimp.
    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.
