Toddler Reacting To Peas?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
