Is It Possible

Recommended Posts

Ok so its just a quick question. I know that its better for you to be 100% free glutin free but is it possible that when i took my son down to only 50% gluten free and 50% "everyday foods" that his body started responding to it better? So when the doctor told us to cut out the gluten free and let him eat whatever so they could do this scope, could his body be fighting back and that is why now i am seeing more behavior problems from him?

I started thinking about this last night because i have been keeping a food and behavior diary for him and i looked back at it and the days i had more problems he had a lot of glutin those day and yesturday he had very little and it was the best day/night we have had in a week and 1/2.

I will take anyone thoughts on this, I just really want to get to the bottem of all of his constipation and now behavior problems.

Thanks

I can't find the info now but I'm sure someone else has it since I found it here :D but there is research that says the brain barrier has the same makeup and such as the gut barrier and responds in the same way. And thus some deal with "mental" issues i.e. behavior, add, etc. or issues that mimic brain diseases or causes them in place of or in addition to gut issues.

In my world, gluten makes my baby evil, mean, vicious and is in direct proportion to her intake. Dairy makes my middle one an airhead and he

Once we took dd off of gluten, I've noticed that she was in a good mood all the time. If she has something that has gluten in it, she becomes unbearable. She's cranky and doesn't listen to reason. The next day, she's back to being happy again.

my daughter, she's 7, is the same way! up until she was diagnosed about three months ago, we thought she was just an over sensitive little girl. she was always crying at the tiniest thing, and moody, often quite irritable or just weepy. it got so bad i truly started to question my ability to be a good parent. literally DAYS into the gluten free diet, she was a different child!! happy, funny, energetic, confident, easy going! (not to mention the two inches she grew in just two months!!) in fact sunday my mom glutened her by accident, by sunday night she was cranky and sassy, by monday evening she couldn't even do her very simple homework, she just sat at the table staring off onto space! it can be frustrating! especially with her, cuz she's very bright and homework is usually a breeze for her! it was actually her behavior that led me to calling my mom to go over everything she ate, attitude is always her first symptom, followed by nausea and diarrhea. this disease can be overwhelming and frustrating, but a healthy happy child is worth every single second of the work and effort it requires! ~K

Oh, absolutely! It can cause all sorts of emotional issues, learning issues, health issues, etc. Nothing I hear surprises me in relation to Celiac!

It does effect mood and behavior in me and I am convinced in my 7 yr old daughter. The scary thing is how much I blamed it on my hormones(PMS etc). It has stablized about 95% since being off gluten. So not only does it effect my mood and behavior, but my hormone levels too. scary.
