Daughter Got Gluttened

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all- hoping someone could tell me what is the best way to help my daughter get over being gluttened? Do i treat it like she has D and go on crackers, toast, rice etc or can I let her eat normal foods? Thanks for anyone who has been there. She was diagnosed at 2 years old and it has been a long time since this has happened and it has never been this severe.... Any help would be greatly appreciated. :(

For our family, we tend to not want to eat much (if at all) after getting glutened. If you have a safe rice, that may work well, and sometimes we start back gently with homemade broth soups. We also enjoy lemonade - made with honey, squeezed lemons, a bit of salt and water. Work on keeping her hydrated well. We encourage eating whole foods, processed only at home, especially during times like this. My kids tend to start back eating with simple foods, like apple or pear slices.

For relief, my kids prefer warm packs on their bellies. I have also started using belly massage with ginger infused olive oil (I made my own with our olive oil and a touch of ginger essential oil) - my super silly girl loves that. Foot massages are also a way we use to help them cope when they are not feeling well. Keep in touch with your healthcare team as well!

My youngest son's appetite tends to become less when he is glutened. He gets constipated and has a belly ache. I try to make sure for him he gets enough fiber and stays well hydrated. I keep senna on hand to help if necessary. He likes me to rub his tummy or back when he does not feel well. He actually loves back rubs and foot massages anytime. :P Sometimes we play a game where I will write him a message on his back and he has to guess what I spelled out.
