    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

With my daughter's last major gluten exposure she had a low grade temp with lethergy, diarhea, loss of appitite, and bleeding rash. The pediatritian said intestional virus.

Just before Christmas, we had stomach flue in the family. She had vomiting, diarhea, temp, no rash.

On Christmass day, she got crumbs from a cookie left on the kitchen table. She had mushy, more frequent stools, and red bottom, only tiny sores, no bleeding.

Can gluten exposure cause fever? Does gluten exposue weaken the immune system and let other bugs in?! How can we tell the difference, especially in a kid who barely puts two words together?

Brigid has her two year checkup on two weeks. I want to talk to the Dr about gluten intolerance, celiac, wheat alergy possibilities.

We have been using a gluten free diet for a year.

Any experiances, thoughts, ideas apreciated. :)

Yep, my little girl gets a high fever with gluten exposure. It has gone as high as 104, which would make me think it was a bug, except that I knew for certain she had a gluten accident. She's had 3-4 accidents in the past nine months, and got a fever with each one. It lasts about 2 days or so. The fever doesn't start right away though....she has vomiting at first, then the fever hits one or two days later. With her first reaction, I thought it was a bug also, and so did the ped. All the symptoms mimic a stomach virus, but now I have learned what a typical reaction is for her....and you'll get to that point too!

Both of us run low grade fevers with a gluten incident. If it was a major incident, my daughter's temp will jump up into that 104-105 range for a few hours. We are also far more suseptible to getting anything that comes along for the next few weeks. That may also play a role in it.

Both of my daugters are gluten intolerant (aged 3 and 5) and they have had accidental ingestions enough times that I know what a typical reaction is. They get a fever everytime. It can last from 1 hour to as much as 24 hours, but usually not more than that. So yes, I can say for certain in my children that a gluten reaction involves a fever.
