Ugh, Gluten Accident

Recommended Posts

We had a gluten accident today, a biggie. My dad was being sweet and took the kids to the library, then McDonalds. He was going to get them an ice cream, and I didn't think to tell him that cones were not okay. I had assumed that he would have known just to get it in a cup, or get the sundae. My parents have been through all of this with us, we are very close....I really thought they had more of a clue than this! So Emmie ended up eating an entire ice cream cone.

Anyway, she has been throwing up for two hours. It seems to have finally slowed down, and she's asleep. She hates pedialyte, so we bought gingerale. I just wish there was something more I could do for her, I know she's going to feel absolutely awful tomorrow. She usually runs a high fever and has stomach cramps...but that was always from a small glutening. We haven't had one this big in over a year. I have a feeling it's going to be a long couple of weeks for all of us.

Is there anything you do for your kids that can speed up the recovery time? Poor bug can't even keep down water at this point, but she should be able to hold something down in the morning. Ugh, this just stinks....she was doing SO good lately too, she had just got over a UTI and was just getting "happy" again. Can you hear me screaming??? Lol. Thanks for letting me vent.

my daughter is 6, when she gets accidentally glutened I give her the Pepto Bismol chewables (1/2 of a tablet, when she was younger I broke it into thirds) and then had her sip on gatorade or water depending on how much she was throwing up or had "d".

I'm so sorry your little one is feeing so bad, hope she gets over it soon.

Tamara,

I'm so sorry to hear that Emmie is feeing so badly. I don't really have any words of wisdom, but just wanted to say that I hope she feels better soon. It's so awful to watch your child be sick.

Update us soon!

I am sorry to hear that your little girl isn't feeling well. Gingerale can be dehydrating itself because of it's sugar content. I know you said she doesn't like pedialite but maybe you could try the popcycles they make. My doc had me drink gaterade when I was preg and dehydrated and it helped allot!


Myself-Age 25....I have had symptoms since at least 1998 if not since infancy (was diagnosed with malnutrition as a small child)...Positive results with gluten free diet!

Hannah-Age 5.....Has symptoms....Inconclusive blood tests....Positive diet response to both gluten free and lactose free!

Grace-Age 1.....Born at 29 weeks due to me having celiac....Has reflux and a feeding tube.

Husband-Not Celiac......has found that he does feel better when not eating allot of gluten.....is gluten free at home.

I hope Emmie's feeling better today! Gatorade helps me the best when I'm dehydrated.

Thanks everyone! I didn't even think of gingerale actually making things worse, that's good to know for the future.

She isn't doing as bad today as I thought she would. Maybe it's a blessing she vomits so much right after an accident, she seems to get alot of it out of her system. Today she just has a bit of a fever, and she's really tired. But she's holding food and drink down, so all is good. I'll just roll up my sleeves and prepare for the moodiness that awaits us. I think that's the worst part of it all, the tantrums and mood swings!

What always baffles me about her reactions is how it affects her speech. She regresses, and she talks in alot of jargon, or things that don't make any sense. It's strange to watch really...I wish more doctors could see this happen, and I think they would think of Celiac as much more than just a gut problem.

Anyway, this too shall pass! Thank you all for the kind words.

I am sorry about your gluten accident. I found this out by accident.

I am not sure if your child is lactose intolerant...

But if she eats yogurt.. this is what I found... I started feeding the baby Yo baby yougurt. and the baby eats two containers ... The yogurt helps the vomiting to not be as violent.

So what I am saying is that for breakfast every morning ......I feed the baby two things of yogurt and it helps the vomiting to not be as bad ... when it happens. This also helps the digestive tract to strenghten . This accidental yogurt find happend when the baby was vomiting because, he was being glutened by me on accident. I heard the yogurt helps ... so I tried it . for the flu season ,.,, and it helped for this .
