Is Lots Of Gas Normal?

Recommended Posts

My DD was confirmed Celiac in April and has been Gluten free since. She has always had more than average gas, I attributed it to gluten. Well gluten free 7 months now and still lots of gas.

More than the average kid.

The typical gas producing foods are NOT prevalent in her diet. ie : cabbage, broccoli etc.. she does not have more than average amount of sweets. Of course more in the last week but it's been going on longer than that, and No stomach pains accompany it.

Is this a stage people go thru when healing? Is there a natural aid for it? Any idea's!!

Lactose (milk sugar) or casein (milk protein) intolerances both can cause gas. Actually, maybe any intolerance could produce gas: Gas (if I'm not mistaken) is a sign that some food is not being digested properly.

Some newly-diagnosed celiacs are temporarily dairy intolerant...for others it's permenant. Lactose is digested on the ends of the villi that are damaged by gluten in those who are celiac. When the villi heal it's better.

You could try cutting out milk/dairy/cream/butter entirely and see if that helps. Or limit dairy and use lactaid pills and lactaid milk to see if that helps and if it doesn't, then eliminate dairy entirely.

And for natural remedies, I like peppermint tea, which would be very soothing for a kid. Lemon balm tea is also an idea. I think there are also peppermint pills, but I've never tried them.

Follow up.

for last 3 days:

I am using Lactaid milk only, am using active enzyme only yogurt and hard cheeses. Is that enough because it maybe slowed down a smidge but not much.

How many days before I see a difference? any idea's

Unfortunately, that's impossible to answer. Some people see remarkable changes in days, some people take months, others take a couple years.

For me having any amount of gas means I have consumed something I should not have.

Soy gives me the WORST gas ever but no abdominal discomfort until the D .
