In Topic: When Is Diarrhea Just Diarrhea?

19 June 2008 - 05:56 AM

I look for the other symptoms before sayng my daughter has been glutened. Changes in mood, disposition, hunger, sleep habits, pee habits, etc. along with the diarrhea usually indicate she has been glutened. Finding the source is always fun. The cat food could easily be a problem. Then again, crumbs on the table, floor, etc cause problems too.

In Topic: P.f. Chang's

I love PF Chang's. But things can go wrong in any restaurant. Next time you go to a restaurant ask to speak to a manager before you order. Have them expalin what they do and answer all of your questions to make you feel more comfortable about eating there.

Also, double check the rest of the products you use and eat. At a graduation it is possible that guests in the house did something wrong that got you sick.

Hope you feel better.

In Topic: Scope Or No Scope

10 June 2008 - 05:47 AM

I am all for the scope. Your child may be more than a bit nervous about the scope see if she can talk t other kids who have had a scope done. It is quick and painless. The scope can be used to rule out other problems your child may be having. Most importantly the biospy is not something that the school or your child can deny. This disease can be depressing at times and I can see arguing with my parents as a teenager about whether or not I actually had the disease if they did not have the biopsy proof. (I was diagnosed as an adult.) Even with a biopsy disgnosis, I have had my family question the need to be 100% gluten-free all of the time.

In Topic: Feeling A Little Down

Wow you went through a lot during those pregnancies. It sounds like you and the kids are doing well. You are gluten-free now. Do you know if the kids are celiacs too? One of mine is. I know the decision to not have more kids is such a hard choice especially when your kids are young. Combining that decision with the life changing "no more gluten" lifestyle change is really hard on anyone's emotions. Adjusting to the gluten-free life can be really hard at first. Hopefully you'll start feeling better about everything soon. If not, be sure to talk to your husband and Drs about some options and alternatives.

In Topic: Did Your Kids Do This?

My daughter was up all night complaining of being hungry before she was diagnosed. She was fed all night too because she was so sick. So it was a bad cycle. After a few weeks of being gluten-free/CF she slept well and we only have problems when she gets gluten-free or dairy. Her behavior and wetting the bed are the first indicators that something has gone wrong.

I think after just a week or so the baby is still healing. Stomach cramps would probably be right. Just figure the baby has been used to diarrhea constantly and now all of a sudden the bowels are working right. I know mine had her first formed poop after a week or two on the diet. She was so happy.

BTW: if family and church aren't "getting it" about gluten-free food, think about a medic alert bracelet. That made a HUGE difference for us.
