Hi, my 8 year old daughter has been gluten-free for 6 weeks now and she has lost 3 pounds. Everyone that hasn't seen her in a while notice quickly that she lost weight. She of average height and weight, just wondering if anyone's child also lost weight while going gluten-free. We eat pretty healthy even before starting her. . She does have less stomach pain while eating and the diareha is gone. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I lost weight at first too, about 15 lbs, but I think a lot of it was inflammation. My gut went down and my face lost some puffiness... I think very little of it was actually fat or muscle loss.

I lost weight for the first three weeks or so, in spite of being ravenous and eating as much as I could. And I was very thin to start with. Then my weight stabilized.

    • Consider Graves Disease.  My mother struggled with it.  She did not have all the classic symptoms of Graves, but she did end up with permanent eye damage (she sees double).  My cousin had it even more severe.  Besides eye muscle pain, she had the classic eye budge (Grave’s affects the muscles in the eye and/or other muscles in the body producing weakness). I have have Rosacea, but it presented  as Ocular Rosacea and not on my face.  My Hashi’s first presented with thyroid enlargement.  I was never cold, lost hair or gained a pound.  My celiac disease presented as anemia with none of the classic GI issues.  What I am saying is that Autoimmune Issues can have various symptoms and are often systemic.   There was a point where I was having thyroid swings.  When hyper my eye muscles hurt.  Scared me because my mom was pretty much forced to give up working.  So...... Do not mess with your eyes.  Get checked by an ophthalmologist.  
    • My son was diagnosed celiac in May 2017 and been gluten free since April. He still has mucus in his bowel movements even though he eats gluten free only. Has anyone else got these symptoms.  Going to the Dr tomorrow as getting  no answers off his paediatrician. I am wondering if he got intolerance to something else as well. 
    • Hi there. I've had ongoing issues with my eyes for a few months now, including pain in my eye orbit, swelling over and under my eyes, dry, wrinkled and flaking under eye skin that comes and goes. I thought that I was allergic to mascara that I had just purchased; that seemed to be when my symptoms began. I'm presently I'm thinking that I have blepharitis. I'm also wondering about Sjorgens syndrome. I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist in a few weeks (my GP told me to put vaseline around my eyes-thanks for nothing!). I'm practicing good eyelid hygiene and have noticed an improvement in just a day! Maybe you can check into those? Good luck to you!
    • I am feeling this right now! It just started and has been going for 15 minutes or so. I just ate some jalapenos, so it could be spicy food related!
    • Seriously check my list Simple Mills, grain free corn free mixes, Enjoy Life, is corn free also but uses a bunch of starches and grains, I listed a rice/cavassa tortilla on there, I listed coconut wraps as alternatives also and those are grain free. I also listed alternatives go gluten free and corn free tortilla chips......I have a corn allergy, like 100F+ fever and blood blisters forming in my mouth, stomach, intestines, and if I touch the stuff I break out in a poison ivy like rash.
