Ds Was Given Pretzels.

Recommended Posts

Ds has been gluten-free for a month now. My dh took him over to friend's of ours to play for the afternoon. When he got home ds asked for a snack and I asked him if he had anything at his friend's? Dh informed me that all he had was pretzels.

I looked at him and asked why he had pretzels? Dh said he wasn't even thinking and that it just occurred to him that he shouldn't have had them. Uh! Yah, you think?

So since we are new to this, I am curious as to whether or not this will effect ds. It has been a few hours since he had them and so far he is fine.

I don't react to a glutening for a day or two. But everyone is different...some people react almost instantaneously. What were his symptoms before he went gluten free? It's likely that he will experience something similar, although I really hope he doesn't have a bad reaction!

Ds' symptoms were cramping and diarrhea, usually within a few hours of eating gluten. He has not been diagnosed yet, were are still waiting on the referral to the ped-gastro for testing, but all the signs point to Celiacs.

I'm hoping he doesn't react and that it truly isn't Celiacs, this is my wishful thinking. Plus I hope it doesn't effect him tomorrow since we have a 5 hour drive for our vacation.

You might want to check with the specialist's office about this, but testing will be skewed by being gluten free. Most doctors advise staying on gluten until after the testing.
