Question About Glutened Response

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter hasn't been tested for celiac's yet, although her dr. is fairly certain that is what we are dealing with. My question is for parents whose kids vomit as a reaction to gluten. My daughter has been having problems where she will vomit in the middle of the night and have no other symptoms of a stomach flu. If it's gluten related, do your kids vomit immediately after eating gluten or is it delayed? We ate last night at 6:30pm. She threw up this morning at 5am. She has no other symptoms of a flu..no fever, no sweating, no loss of energy, no achiness, and she's eating just fine now. In fact, she's wanting to eat and eating with no problems. I'm purposely having her avoid all gluten today so as to possibly differentiate if it's the flu or not. I asked her if her stomach hurt last night after eating and she said that it didn't start hurting until the middle of the night. I'm asking to see if it's possible that it was gluten related since she has absolutely no symptoms of the flu with this. This isn't the first time this has happened and it's starting to happen more and more. Any of your kids have a delayed glutened response like this?

Is she wide awake when she trows up or still out of it?

Anyway, that isn't that delayed. Some people don't start getting symptoms till 3 days later :blink:

It is very possible that it is related, however i would continue to get her tested just to verify it is before doing anything else.

Thank you for your quick response. She is awake because the stomach ache wakes her. :(

My son isn't diagnosed with celiac, but it's something we suspect right now. He does vomit after eating gluten. He's only 13 months old, but every time he's had wheat/gluten he vomits about 2 hours later. He'll be fine for about 2 hours after eating it, but then he begins vomitting- and sometimes the vomitting can last 30 minutes, sometimes hours with dry heaving. He hasn't had gluten for a few months now, but he has a return appointment with his pediatric GI in a few days so I think we have to try it again to know if it's something that's still an issue. I'm hoping that if he does still have the reaction that this will be the last time I have to give him gluten for a long time! I feel so guilty giving it to him, but I guess the doctor wanted to wait until after he turned 1 to see if it's still an issue and then go from there.

Hi. My son was diagnosed with Celiac when he was 3 years old. He is now 7. Poor guy almost made it through 1st grade without incident but today (with only 4 days left) his teacher accidentally glutenated him! He starts vomiting approximately 2 to 4 hours after he ingests gluten. And this lasts for about 4 hours. He is exhausted when this happens and it's horrible to watch. Thankfully, he is sleeping now after I gave him a suppository of Promethegan (anyone else use this)? His doctor prescribed it and this is the first time I had to use it. So far it seems to be working. He only vomited once this afternoon, I gave him the suppository, then he went to sleep. I'm worried that this is just going to prolong things. Anyway, I just wanted to post that my son always has a delayed reaction to gluten, which unfortunately begins and ends with vomiting.
