So I went on a gluten free diet with my son about 2 weeks ago. I also have a 10 month old whom Im nursing. I didn't realize that I had cut gluten/wheat out of her diet as well. She has had chronic diarreahia since I can remember(prob since crackers have been introduced). The past week she has had firmer stools and I had a realization that maybe gluten/wheat is a problem. I gave her some ritz crackers yesterday to see how it would effect her. Low and behold she had diarreah again today. :/ celiac does run in both sides but neither my husband nor I have been diagnosed. None of my other kids have had food allergies before. Has any one else had similar experiences? Do I call the dr? How would they test her? Thanks!
question, I know that this has been posted a while back but I am wanting some updated information if any is available... Does anyone else's kids have sensory processing disorder and have you noticed improvement with a gluten free diet? My son who is almost 4 is displaying sensory issues. He has been severly constipated and is CHRONICALLY constipated. His Celiac blood panel came back normal. We started a gluten free diet about a week ago. Its hard to say if his behaviors have improved or not since then. His constipation has NOT improved yet. I know it can take time but how long? We are planning on doing this for a month. Any feed back would be appreciated! We are going to see a Developmental Specialist on Wednesday. Sorry if my thoughts are scattered I AM HORRIBLY sleep deprived due to children not sleeping. LOL
My son has been severely constipated for about 6 months now. Nothing seems to be helping. We have done miralax, lactalose, senna, and a few others. Anyways had celiac panel done (it was sent to CA) and came back normal. His esnophills came back elevated though. My son has had some MAJOR behavioral changes and I'm afraid to leave him alone with my 7 month old. Preschool is frustrated as am I. He is now head banging, screaming, and hitting all for some reason. He's constantly complained his tummy and lower back hurts since this constipation problems has started. Btw, we finally got hiim cleaned out.
Celiac runs in our family but neither my husband and I have it. Does this sound like gluten sensitivity or some other stomach issue? GI dr doesn't seem concerned because his blood panel was "normal". I'm at my whits end and don't know where to go from here.any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My son's regular lab work all came back normal except for his esoniohils were elevated. Dr felt that it was due to his allergies. I did some reading and it can be a flag for celiac as well. Celiac test was done as well but won't get the results for quite some time yet. Was wondering if anyone else has had this happen as well. Did your celiac test come back positive or negative? Celiac does run strongly in our families. Thanks!
