3 Year Old Celiac Son Vomiting From Being Glutened

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 3 yr old Celiac son was given a "regular" cookie yesterday at a party, ate 1/2 before I noticed and freaked. Started vomiting 3 hours later, 4X, for 2 hrs. Seems to be fine today. No D yet. Will the vomiting have gotten all the gluten out, or should we expect a long week of symptoms? He was diagnosed Jan 2010, and has only had 1 bout of cross contamination, with D for 3 weeks, but never vomiting before.

I'm sorry your son was given gluten containing food. My son vomits when glutened, and it doesn't seem to get rid of all the gluten. I'm sorry.

This actually happened to us very recently. DS is 2 1/2 and got a waffle and ate about 2 bites of it. Almost exactly 3 hours later, he threw up. But that was it- just one time, took a LONG nap, and that was it. While I agree- don't know that it got rid of all the gluten out of his system, but it wasn't days of throwing up.

It's hard to deal with though. :(

Interestingly, my daughter rarely throws up when glutened, it's typically massive diarrhea for about two weeks. However, when she has straight gluten (half a bagel for instance), she throws up, gets confused for about 24 hours but nothing lingers. (Horrible stomach cramps for a couple of days though). So, maybe your son will be okay. All the best to you both.
