In Topic: Breastfeeding When Exposed To Gluten !help!

11 February 2013 - 10:40 AM

Are you the gluten intolerant one? I am and am currently nursing and got glutened and my little one reacted too...... currently on a gluten, dairy, soy, egg, peanut free diet to figure out what else is bothering her.

If they are already doing the blood work anyways, I would do the panel. BUT I wouldn't trust a negative. Children 2 and under are almost impossible to test. Some test positive though so I would go ahead with the blood work if you were already doing it. I would NOT recommend an endo though regardless what the blood work says.

In Topic: Toddler Threw Up Two Hours After Gluten.

Trust your instincts! And trust your kiddo! I have a Celiac daughter who is our "Celiac Sniffer." She can tell if something is cross contaminated...she lifts it to her lips but won't eat it...

Thinking of you!


Funny that you say that, because we have actually tried to get her to eat gluten before and she refused. I make pancakes and biscuits (gluten free) once a week or so and she LOVES them and begs for them. Well my mom (after I told her too) tried to give her some pancakes with gluten (not at our house) and she opened her mouth but spit it out IMMEDIATELY Then mom tried some biscuit and she refused to open her mouth. But kept eating her green beans and carrots that were on her plate....So it wasn't that she wasn't hungry, she was begging for more, but refused the gluten food.

She is actually like normal except for that. No fever and ate good later that day. Actually ate more than usual which worried me even more, as I have a tendency to be STARVING after my gluten reaction. I don't usually throw up though. Usually I have horrible cramps and upset stomach that follows. (as far as GI reactions)

In Topic: Gluten Free Food In The Hospital?

If you could manage it, I would recommend talking to the dietician ahead of time. I know, I know, some of them are hopeless about gluten; and you probably can't hope to luck out like I did (the dietician was a celiac), but they can help you and talk to the kitchen staff and give them a brush up on gluten free. The hospital I was in did not have a gluten free menu but they did have Udi's bread (as a salt-free bread Posted Image ) and the dietician made out a meal plan for me for every meal (and I was there three weeks!!). I ate a lot of salads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, lots and lots of fruit and yogurt, sandwiches on Udi's, chicken and salmon with rice.


I called and talked to them and she said she had no doubt they could handle getting food for me that I could have as they are a 24hour room service type thing...I still doubted...So I tried to explain more...lol...she said If i will get her a list of foods I like (gluten free) that she will go herself and buy them to have on hand for me. But that still doesn't rule out cross contamination....Apparently when I eat gluten, I know while it is still in my mouth, as my mouth and throat starts burning right away. And I get a headache right away and gassy belly......So I might try it but if that happens, skip the meals and have my husband bring me food. But oh I don't want to learn the hard way :(

In Topic: Arsenic In Rice?

Alright, I think it is decided. Going on a more grain-free diet like a low carb diet except we will keep potatoes and stuff. I just can't keep letting my kids have the rice products!
