Help mitigating symptoms in toddler

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My toddler's blood tests show it's extremely likely that she has Celiac's. Her biopsy to confirm is 2 weeks away and until then we can't change her diet because it could result in a false negative. She is vomiting, bloated, gassy, constipated, grouchy, and I am sure confused as to what the hell is going on. I can't find any helpful articles about how to help ease the symptoms so I'm hoping someone here can give me some insight. Is there anything that can be done to help ease her symptoms while we wait for her biopsy date(other than stop eating gluten because we can't do that)? Or are we all doomed to be miserable for the next 2 weeks?

I don't know how much gluten she is eating....maybe you could cut back on it? And you can use whatever products are appropriate for her symptoms & her age - pepto bismol or a laxative, for example.

Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant (forever if you have the genetic make-up).  Your toddler’s symptoms can possibly be more tolerable, if you eliminate all dairy until the endoscopy and then maybe for a few weeks after.  It would be worth a try!  

Hope things improve.  Two weeks feels like forever, but it will be over soon!  ?
