Help Accidently Glutened My Son

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son drank half a bottle "function House Call". I had checked all of them I thought but this one clearly says Natural Flavors (contains gluten).

Should I make him throw it up ? Have ipecac.

We just got dx 11.29.07 and he is still real bad, but I don't want to kill any progress we have made.

All of a sudden at dinner he said I don't feel so well and got up, so I grabbed the bottle, but it was too late.

How old is he?

I'm not sure if throwing up would matter. Chances are if he consumed gluten and is already affected by it...

I know that when I was glutened I drank as much water as possible, hoping it would wash away whatever gluten was in there.

Others have recommended the B.R.A.T diet which worked for me (I think) Thats banana, rice, applesauce and tea/toast

I think you want to eat non-gluten foods like the above to balance the gluten that was consumed.

I am fairly new at this and don't normally give advice but I saw your post and felt like I might know enough to reply.

Good Luck and help will be on the way soon!

Thanks for the reply, he is 10. I had Celiac ADD for the past few days. Decided to try and get him to throw up, but probably was not a good idea. He ended up with blood dots under his eyes the next day.

His diarrhea is better, but I have decided I want the endoscopy as he is having other issues with his stomach.

I still second guess the decision every day as I know he has Celiac but for school, and Social Security it is a necessity. His school has been nice, but I know as soon as you ask for accomodations they may ask for the report. And of course the GI doc says, sorry gold standard need biopsy.

throwing up won't do a lot of good, might change the dose a bit if it's *right* after, and is solid food, but in general, just supportive measures until the symptoms pass.

I agree on the vomiting not helping unless its very close to when ingested... then it will only make the amount smaller rather than stop the symptoms altogether.... not to mention sometimes just thinking about doing that sends shivers up my spine, never have been able to force myself to do that...

I also believe I recall you said your child was 10.... they need to also start taking control of their diet and not "assume" you checked for them, you wont always be there and they need to know what to look for or they may go to a friends house or on a camping trip with the neighbors... knowing a couple 10 year olds, this will not be something they will want to do but it is going to be easier for them to learn now rather than later.

Just a thought, I guess the "natural flavor" was gluten considering his reaction.

But a lot of times, i have called the company and its doesn't always mean gluten is in there.

So far, the public school has been very supportive of my daughter's gluten issues and I have not had to send any evidence to support that. I do have to pack her lunch everyday since the food they serve is a joke!

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
