Nathan's mom

Delayed Reaction?

Recommended Posts

My son is 4 1/2 and he has been gluten-free for almost a year now. We know that 8 days ago he was gluttoned while in a church class. I think it was only about 1/2 a graham cracker. That afternoon he commented that his stomach hurt. Two days later he had some huge poop for two days in a row (like a foot and a half long and 2 inches wide - don't mean to be gross but you all know how poop matters!). On day 4, 5, and 6 he was "off" - hyper, onry, etc. Then he cried out in his sleep on day 6 and 7 and then last night he was awake 2+hours. I do know that one of the signs of him detoxing from something is being wide-awake in the middle of the night. When I first eliminated gluten 100% a year ago, he was wide awake in the middle of the night for 6 nights in a row - about 2-3 hours each night. This is a symptom that has disappeared after eliminating gluten but it was also present when detoxing from it.

Could this 8 day cycle of events be from the gluten the previous Sunday? Anyone else experience this?

Thanks,

Debbie


Mom to Nathan (5) and Joshua (6 months).

Nathan diagnosed Celiac through positive dietary response and bloodwork.

In search of the best gluten free recipes. I get discouraged, then pick up the measuring cup again and try some more.

Praying Nathan has a good year in Kindergarten!

I can't say if it was from the graham cracker but some are soooo very sensitive it wouldn't surprise me. we also had a child glutened at Sunday School. The young teacher knew the child had a bag of goodies in the room but she decided on her own that it would be okay to give three teddy bear grahams . the poor kid was so sick & nasty for several days........ She knew not to do this but she stated she felt sorry for the child. So I guess making the child sick ; she felt was a better option!!!!!!
