Vomiting And Celiac

Rate this topic

I was wondering if any of you have this reaction. My son has vomitted more in the last 3 months than anyone I know. We chalked it up to a GI virus the first few times, but its getting crazy. He vomits about 1 time a day for a few days, feeling fine between, and then will go a while without and then it starts again.

He vomitted on Friday and again about 24 hours later on Saturday. Now again Tuesday morning. He has had diarrhea bad too since Monday night.

We call the Dr.s when this happens and they say GI bug. But I'm wondering if its a possible allergy to something else, or if he had gluten. Please respond, I'm very worried. He is also diabetic and he has to be able to eat, or he will get very sick.

You didn't mention the age of your son.. Celiac and diabetes have a connection, and he should be tested for Celiac. Celiac can cause vomiting, "D", constipation, or no symptoms at all. Vomiting is more common among children with Celiac.

Call the doctor and get a refferal to G.I. specialist and have the Celiac screening blood test drawn today! If you start a gluten free diet before the testing is done you may never get an accurate diagnoses.

He has been diagnosed with celiac, and we have been gluten free for 1.5 years. That is not the question. I am wondering if any of you or your children had this as a reaction.

I have been gluten-free for 2 years about 4 months ago I started vomiting in the middle of meals - every meal :( . I was diagnosed with GERD and am on medication. I'm down to throwing up once a month.

Yes, my daughter was vomiting about three times a day before diagnoses. She has not vomited or had "D" since she started on the gluten free diet.

For me, nausea and vomiting are often the first sign that I have gotten some gluten in my system. I hope you can figure out what it is!

My ds has been gluten-free for a year and a half (very strict). He has lately taken to random vomitting again. He will do it once and then not at all for a few days and then do it again. He did this (but much worse and more often) before diagnosis 18 month ago, but has only recently started again. I suspect he has other food allergies. I am working on trying to figure it all out. He is also having eczma, hives, etc. at times. We just decided to go dairy free and see what happens.

My daughter was projectile vomiting 20+ times a day. She also had sever GERD and a sliding hiatul hernia. My son gets the runs.

I would try eliminating dairy too for awhile and see what happens. Also look into the GERD idea. Other then that, I don't know. Maybe another food intolerance.

:( I am sorry!

Last week we were in the hospital for 4 days with my 15 month old son. He had diarreha for a month. He had one episode of vomiting that lasted 4 days. THen it calmed down and he did not vomit anymore. For 2 weeks he would vomit about once or twice per week. Then he started vomiting majorly again. This time he could keep nothing down! Not even breastmilk! The runs were still going on as well. He was finally admitted to childrens hospital because he had become deyhdrated and sugar counts were down to 46. They should be at least 60! Since we have gone gluten free the vomiting has totally stopped. It took 4 days and ruling out all the other GI infections, bacteria etc before they finally tested for celiac. It still has not come back positive but he is so much better on gluten-free diet that I KNOW that is what it is. The Runs have also started to clear and so has his skin. He is also only waking up 1-2 times per night instead of every 1-2 hours!

So in my experience YES celiac causes vomiting!

My son did a lot of vomiting too. Initial blood allergy testing came up negitive. The Dr. did a RAST allergy blood test and it was discovered he is severly allergic to soy (and less allergic a lot of other foods)The test ranks allergic response 1-5. Most reg. Drs. don't mention the RAST test. He rarely vomits now.

I lived for about 5 years on anti-diareahl (anywhere from 1 to 4 a day)! I would still get what I call attacks. Severe stomach pain, like being in the last stages of labor and having an entire torso charlie horse! I always said that compared to these attacks, having a baby was nothing! Severe liquid diareah and intense nausea and vomitting, anywhere from 3 to 6 times a week. Each attack would last 1 to 3 hours. I have been gluten-free for over 2 years now, have not thrown up once in that time. :D

Yes....Celiac disease can cause vomitting.

Gosh, that does sound odd. All I have is my daughter's reactions to go by, but here's how it works for her usually. With the initial gluten accident, she will have vomitting and D. But that's usually only for the first day or 2, then it starts w/the moodiness etc. We have had it happen where she's had two gluten accidents close together, but only the initial gluten causes such severe symptoms. It seems like once it's already in her system, it takes forever to clear, therefore any additional accidents don't cause a real noticeable reaction.

If that made any sense at all, lol......it would seem weird to me that if he was getting glutened, that he would be having continual vomitting like that. But I dunno, everyone is different. And the GI bug explanation would fly the first time, but not for so long.

I wish I was more help to you! I would definately have the docs look into it further. Could be a gluten accident I suppose...can you have his ttg checked??? Our GI offered to do this if Emmie gets really sick again, just to rule out gluten vs. GI bug. But you've been at this diet longer than we have, it seems like an accidental glutening would be hard to get past you at this stage of the game.

There's my pitiful 2 cents! I hope your little guy gets better soon, and you figure out what the culprit is.

I've been gluten free for three years and I still get random bouts of vomiting... this morning was the most recent... I still don't know if it was from a bug or if I got "glutened" or if it was something else (no I'm not pg) It is frustrating that we have to deal with these ongoing mysterious symptoms and I hope you figure out what is causing your son's vomiting. I wish I had a better answer for you other than I understand what you are going through.

I was just wondering how your son was doing and if you figured out what was wrong. I forgot to mention in my previous post that I have GERD as well and that can also lead to vomiting. My niece who is two has it as well and she used to vomit frequently when she was younger until they figured out she was lactose intolerant. I hope the little guy is OK- that's very scary especially since he's diabetic.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
