Topics I've Started

7 Year Old With Stomach Distress

26 August 2013 - 06:03 PM

I live as if I have celiac's even though I don't have a formal diagnosis.  I had only the one blood test which was negative and I had an endoscopy but they only took 2 samples.  But all of my symptoms, including a rash which looked just like DH, cleared up when I went gluten-free and then dairy-free so I do believe it is actually celiacs.  Unfortunately my daughter is now having problems and I am worried it might be celiacs but the dr won't even look at that as a possibility bc he says I don't have it.  When I told him about her symptoms he just said that it is functional abdominal pain, without doing any sort of assessment.  We are going back again on September 10 and I am going to insist that he try and figure out what is going on.  She is 7.5 yrs old and for the last 4 month she's been getting increasingly more frequent stomach aches, some diarrhea, she says she is regurgitating in her mouth, she is more fatigued, cranky, just feeling blah.  This kid LOVES school and she keeps missing school due to her stomach aches.  This summer she even had to miss some days of camp and she was so upset.  The dr was trying to tell us that she must be anxious about school or something but I know that's not true.  Plus it has been getting progressively worse, even over the summer.  What can I do to at least get the dr to try and help my daughter in some way?  Maybe it isn't celiacs, maybe it's lactose intolerance or something completely different, but I just want some help for her.

Starving All The Time!

13 March 2013 - 06:08 AM

I went gluten free in November and that wasn't too bad.  5 days ago I had to go dairy-free as well as I was getting sick from it.  Since then I am starving, I mean literally hungry every second to the point that my stomach hurts.  I can't sleep at night due to being so hungry.  I am making sure I get lots of protein and I eat very healthy.  I am trying to lose weight so I am on weight watchers and it was going fine until I cut out gluten and dairy.  What could be causing this extreme hunger?  I don't want to eat all the time or I'll gain weight. 

Dairy Free Protein Powder

09 March 2013 - 03:30 PM

Is there a dairy free protein powder that doesn't taste like garbage??  I have been using Visalus protein powder and having two smoothies a day for two of my meals.  Now I am starting to get sick from the dairy.  I have tried Vega One and Sunwarrior and they both taste so gross I dumped it in the sink after one sip.  I don't like to eat meat or any meat substitutes (tofu, soy, etc) so I am freaking out right now about how to get protein.  I am starting to think I will just stop eating altogether.


Does anyone know of any dairy free protein powder that doesn't taste like dirt??

Amy's Products

26 February 2013 - 12:11 PM

I just noticed that on the packaging of some Amy's products it says that it is made in a facility that also processes wheat products and other allergens.  Does that mean there could be cross-contamination?  I have been eating the products and I am worried that it might be part of the reason why my symptoms are coming back.

Gluten-Free For 3 Months - Now Symptoms Again?

26 February 2013 - 10:50 AM

I have been gluten-free for 3 months and I started to feel better after about a month and over the last 2 weeks I've started to feel really sick again.  I don't think I am getting cross-contaminated bc I am being really careful.  The rest of my family (husband and 3 kids) all eat gluten but I wash my hands after handling their food.  I am really, really hoping that I am not also sensitive to dairy.  I drink two smoothies a day as part of my diet plan to lose weight (visalus smoothies) and after cutting out so much already I don't want to cut out dairy. :(  How would I know if I have other sensitivities?  Or is it possible that I am getting cross-contaminated somehow?
