Eaten Gluten Twice With No Obvious Reaction?

02 June 2014 - 09:57 AM

My now 3 year old son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 18 months after having problems maintaining his weight. I actually asked his pediatrician to run the blood test on him after reading all the symptoms on line. All his levels were normal except his TTG was was point over normal. Anything 4 and over was considered abnormal per the test and his was 5. Because he was only a year old we decided not to do the biopsy and just went gluten free. Since going gluten free he has grown right on track but he also stopped being such a picky eater. He's had some loose stools here and there and we thought he was being glutenized but he's been fine in that department for a while now. Then 2 days ago he ate half of a regular gluten filled hamburger bun. No obvious reaction what so ever. This has now happened 2 in the last couple of months. Ate something with gluten and did not have a reaction. I don't know what to think. 

2 Year Old Violent And Hostile After Eating A Ritz Cracker...

06 August 2013 - 01:57 PM

We were at my sister in law's house Sunday night when my son found a Ritz cracker on the floor and of course shoved it in his mouth. He didn't have diarrhea, which is is usual "glutenized" sign, in fact he didn't have a bm at all yesterday. He was violent, hostile and kinda spacey all day though. Can anyone relate to that after gluten exposure? Today he doesn't have the big D but his poop has that awful chemically smell that clears out your sinuses and he still seems a little off. He's 2 don't get me wrong, he throws stuff, screams and well...acts 2 but not like this usually.  


Can your symptoms of gluten exposure vary? Thanks! 


He was diagnosed via blood test and improvement on a gluten free diet (Oct 2012/19 month old) by his pediatrician. 

My Brother Possibly Has Celiac But Is Dragging His Feet On Diagnosis

12 June 2013 - 11:51 AM

My 2 year old son was diagnosed with Celiac last October, his pediatrician recommended that our immediate family gets tested and that we encourage our extended family as well since it runs in families. We've been tested and all my siblings and my mom (dad is working on it) have been tested and my brother tested positive on one test. I don't know what test it was but one out of five was out of range. He said the base line was 22 and his number was 58. I said he needed to see a GI doc and to keep eating gluten. He called me specifically and seemed on board with the whole possible Celiac idea. That was a month ago.  He has tons of the symptoms, gastric issues, headaches, anxiety, edema, short stature as a child and more. Then all of a sudden if you bring it up he gets defensive and changes the subject. He won't respond to my messages about it now and I haven't been pushy at the least. My brother is pretty lazy when it comes to taking care of himself and doesn't take well to change, he eats an awful diet, and basically his idea of vegetables is lettuce on his cheeseburger and olives on his pizza. I'm really scared for him. About 2 years ago his doctor told him he is pre-diabetic, he's severely overweight and now possibly celiac disease. He's only 34 but I worry that he won't be around in 10 or 20 years. 


What information should I give to him to let him know how serious untreated Celiac is? I want to be able to throw hard core facts at him. 


Thanks for any info or advice you may have.
