Toddler Reacting To Peas?
0

8 posts in this topic

My 20 month old son is now gluten and dairy free. I have been watching for other food allergies and intolerances because of his eczema. I have noticed that when he eats peas, he often has stomach issues and recently is getting diarrhea shortly after eating them. I know peas are related to the peanut family. I have never given him peanut products yet. Do I need to be concerned about this or could it just be that he has trouble digesting peas? Thanks!

I don't think I'd assume that he'd be intolerant to peanuts just because he has trouble with peas. It's definitely a possibility that he'll have peanut issues, but not a given. Does he have trouble with other beans?

I have a peanut intolerance, but don't react to any other bean or pea.

That is good to know. He had some green beans tonight and had some trouble, but I haven't tried other types of beans. He has had a cold lately so I could be overreacting to everything he eats. I am just nervous everytime he has diarrhea.

Is it common to be allergic to the bean family? I used to tolerate beans, but not anymore. But I find it funny that such a toddler would react at such a young age.

My daughter is allergic to peanuts, and she gets itchy lips from peas. She tested as allergic to peas and several legumes including peas. I would see an allergist if I were you. You want to reduce exposures if he is allergic. I hope you get some answers soon.

Can'teveneatrice-

I would be highly suspect of all legumes, based on what you wrote. (I am a legume-intolerant person, among other things). Peas, peanuts, lentils, beans (including soy)....Its one of those slippery slopes---once you have one "issue," you seem to have more. A dear friend of mine has a son about your son's age....had horrible eczema. Convinced her to have him allergy tested...sure enough...allergic to wheat (and she is going gluten free with him, just to be safe), soy, eggs, yeast, and corn. It is amazing the things that our bodies decide they don't like....(look at my sig! ha!)

Either way, I hope your little guy is ok!

Peas and peanuts are both legumes. It is possible to be allergic to all legumes, and it's also possible to be allergic to only one or two. It's also possible to outgrown these allergies. I was allergic to peanuts (outgrew it as an adult) and disliked eating peas as a kid, but wasn't allergic to them and have always loved pea soup. I also have no problems with any beans.

I recommend getting allergy testing done eventually. I believe that, unless an allergy is severe, most allergists will want to wait until your son is a bit older. Definitely worth talking to your family doctor or paed. and looking into your options. And avoid peas in the meantime. Probably best to wait until about 3 yo to try peanuts. :)

Thanks for all of the responses! We had the ImmunoCap done on Wed. and we are still waiting for the results. I hated having him go through the blooddraw. It doesn't specifically test for lots of foods, but does cover the main allergens. I guess we will go from there. He seems to be reacting to more and more foods now. I swear he may have reacted from blueberries yesterday. I cannot tell if he is just sensitive from going gluten free a few weeks ago or if he is developing more allergies.

I'm allergic to soy, peas, garbanzo beans, and other beans/legumes. I get hives, asthma, my throat starts to swell shut, eczema, stomach pains and diarrhea. I have to carry an epipen because of it. Really sucks because soy is in everything. Corns the other of my allergies that is the most difficult to avoid.

My son is allergic too. He gets all bloated, gassy, eczema and hives.

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
