Gluten Reaction Vs Stomach Virus In 3 Year Old

Recommended Posts

My 3 year old has had diarrhea & has been complaining of an upset stomach with very little appetite for almost 4 days now.  The diarrhea the first day was the worst and now the diarrhea has gotten better, but is not gone and he's still complaining of an upset stomach and not eating much.  Is this just a stomach virus?  We were out of town just before this hit, so we were in a home that was not gluten free (yet I fed him all gluten-free foods-mostly things I packed from home).

 

I'm just not sure what to look for in a gluten reaction for him. 

 

Thanks for your help!

I am sorry that he is feeling unwell!

It could be either. Not what you wanted to hear. We tend to forget that we pick up "bugs" and not everything is related to celiac disease.

I agree. it could be either one.  If the stomach upset lingers for a couple of weeks, I would assume it was gluten.  If he gets a fever and runny nose, it was a virus or bacteria.

 

Either way, I hope he feels better soon.
