Does anyone's children have bouts of unexplained D (pasty not loose-watery) after being on the diet for a while? He was doing so well. Is this common or a fluke. I know or am pretty certain he has not been glutened. I've been keeping a food journal, but he's been having D off and on the past week week and a half. I'm starting to think maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree and all the doctors have been right. My husband thinks otherwise. He thinks that because he's done so well all along that we shouldn't worry. My concern is the iron. I don't want his solid movements to be from the iron. He's been on the iron since early December and we sarted the diet Jan 16th. His first ever solid bm was the middle to end of January. I don't know what to think anymore. Maybe it is Crohn's. I hope it isn't. He seems so much NOT to fit that description. D was so bad tonight that his bottom was raw again and we had to immediately put him in the bath. He was screaming. I'm at a loss.

Is he eating dairy? He may not be able to handle too much until he is healed. Did he have more dairy than usual the past few days? From what you have said he has made great strides being gluten-free and gets worse if he gets gluten. Hang in there and see if you can figure out what may be bothering him. My daughter was getting small amounts of gluten from stickers and stamps. Once we got rid of that she was better. Good luck!

Will he react to tiny amounts of whey or something else that he never reacted to before? I think it may have been the huge amount of broccoli he had last week. He had it three days in a row and he has a huge bowl off it with supper. I've not let him have it since and he had two normal bm's yesterday. I also have not given him his iron (feel rotten about that) just to see if it was that making him solid. Nope. The last day of broccoli was this past Monday. Is pasty poo still considered abnormal? I've read everywhere that it is. I just hope the broccoli was the reason and not something else so I'm not beating my head against the wall again. I would hate to think it was Crohn's. I sent this lenghty article to Evan's dr. from a conference that Dr. Fine held in Dallas March 3-5 about his research. He said he would read it and give me his take on it. I hope he has an open mind and doesn't shoot it down. Once I hear back I'll let you know the outcome. Thanks for your response.

He could be. I never realized that dairy was a problem for Belle until she went gluten-free. Then it became apparent that she could not handle any amount of dairy. Even whey in crackers. Finally after 4 months of gluten-free she can tolerate it again. Good luck! The fact that the diet has been positive points towards celiac.
