Puffy Eyes

Recommended Posts

My seven year old seems to have puffy eyes (mostly above his eyes) in the winter. How likely is it that this is connected to gluten intolerance?

Not gluten free yet because I'm waiting to be tested.

My 11 yr old has that too. It's a sinus problem for sure. My kid is old enough so she can use a Neti pot to help with it. I'm sure it's what she's eating. I read somewhere that gerd/reflux can affect the sinuses. My daughter also has really bad breath and eating too much sugar can also affect her sinuses.


Osteoporosis, and sacroiliac arthritis diagnosed 32 yrs of age.  Chronic low wbc, Severe constipation, Migraines, severe GERD, multiple miscarriages, Sjrogen's disease, positive ANA, thyroid nodules (hyperthryoid), fatty liver disease with elevated enzymes, low vitamin D, low protein, IBS, SIBO, Discoid lupus, mulitple food allergies and massive hair loss.  I left my career because I was too sick to keep working, and it was devastating because I couldn't apply for disability without a diagnosis.  My daughter was a preemie and she has Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) and had a positive ANA and Rheumatoid Factor at 16 and now has been dx'd with Hashimoto's.

 

Allergic to:  corn, rice, beans, tomatoes, dairy.  Not diagnosed as celiac.

That's interesting, thank you.
