Loose Bowels

Recommended Posts

my 7 yr old daughter was diagnosed with a "very, very, very" mild case of celiac, back on the end of august. Our doctor suggested that we put her on the diet and we did. It's been almost 2 months and she's had on and off loose bowels still. Our doctor has her taking prilosec and benefiber. It seemed to have worked cause her bowels had form (no longer loose and watery). Then she caught a virus (cold) and was put on antiobiotics, but prior to the antibiotics she became loose again. After the antibiotics, her stool had form again. She's been off now for two weeks, and her stool became watery and loose again...

HELP!!! any ideas as to what is going on with her?

I don't have an answer for you, but I just wanted to bump this up to the top so hopefully someone with an answer WILL see it. :)

I don't have any specific answers either.

Does she drink a lot of juice or eat a lot of fruit? Does she have other intolerances that could be causing problems. My family tends towards diarrhea if they eat something they are intolerant too. My son always has soft, soft bowel movements since he loves fruit.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
