Topics I've Started

3 Yr Old Vomiting

17 April 2011 - 07:17 PM

I suspect my 3 year old daughter has gluten intolerance. I discovered my GI 5 months ago, and have been eliminating gluten in my diet - our family is also severely lactose intolerant and we never eat dairy. This last month however, she has been complaining of stomach aches every time she poops - though she does not have diarrhea, weight loss, or look sick. Her BM's are solid and normal. I have been cutting out the gluten in her diet, like wheat bread in her lunches, and switching her to my gluten-free bread. Worried, we took her to the doc for a blood test, which came back negative (I expected this), and he gave no further advice on what to do.

The other night, I fed her organic chicken nuggets, which were breaded, and didn't think too much of it, but she ended up vomiting it all up 6 hours later. She only threw up once, so I figured it wasn't the flu. Then two days later, we went to Grandma's and she ate some smarties and candy that they gave her, plus 2 juice boxes (I never give her this much junk!). I am pretty sure they weren't gluten free, and she ended up with a HUGE distended stomach and vomited a startling amount an hour later. She did not have a fever, sweats or chills like with the flu, and a 30 minutes after she threw up, she was her happy, bubbly self again.

What is going on? Is it possible for her to react to gluten with vomiting? Has this happened to anyone else? I am not sure what my next step is to help my little girl. PLEASE HELP!

Suppressed Immune System With Celiac?

22 March 2011 - 07:50 AM

Hi I am new to this forum and am excited to meet you! I found out about my gluten intolerance last Oct 2010 and though I haven't had as many all-night gastrointestinal episodes since then, I still dont have any energy and I am fatigued ALL THE TIME. I am also sick with a cold or the flu every 2-6 weeks like clockwork. My glands in my throat are sore & swollen often & I feel run down like I am getting sick with a cold/flu at least once a week.

My Naturopath says I also have Epstein Barr Virus. Has anyone else had similar immune issues with gluten intolerance? Is this related to possible Celiac, or is my suppressed immune system from something else going on? Spleen? Adrenals?

I dont eat gluten (obviously), dairy, red meat, pork, or anything processed, and can't figure out how my diet can get any healthier, and why I still don't feel good. I am taking sublingual B12, Floradix Iron, and a Zinc supplement as well as digestive enzymes. I have done an elimination diet, but didnt notice a difference as I had hoped.

Please help?!
