Improvement On Gluten-free Diet

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

My son has just had a biospy and we are presently waiting for the results. Since going on a gluten-free diet (and dairy/soy-free), we have seen a dramatic improvement in his eating and mood.

It has been two weeks and my son is now eating, the rashes have disappeared and he is sleeping less and is less cranky. After almost a year of no weight gain, he has put on almost 1/2 pound in the last 5 days.

How quickly did you see an improvement in your babes after going gluten-free? How long did it take for them to catch-up to their peers in weight/height?

Thanks for your responses.

Well, at this time we haven't diagnosed him with celiac - it could be a milk/soy protein allergy, so I don't know if his improvements are "normal" for celiacs.

He eats a gluten-free chocolate pudding I found online at http://www.fastq.com/~jbpratt/recipes/dair...ts/pudding.html - which we add almond milk for calories and calcium. He also likes turkey weiners, gluten-free cake, bananas, pork & beans (the deep-browned not the original), brown rice macaroni with ketchup, soft-boiled eggs and pork roast.

Good luck with your daughter, I hope she starts eating soon.

Hi, I began seeing improvement in my sons health almost immediately, and he was nearly normal in about 6 weeks. He was 1 yr at the time of diagnosis and had been sick for about 3 - 4 months. He was fine for about the first 8 months of his life, then he contracted a severe infection that caused his celiac disease gene to "activate" itself. Because we were so used to him being in peak health, it was easy for us to know there was something very worng, and his dx came pretty quickly compared to most.

My son ate like a horse before his dx and since then has cut back dramatically, some days I can't get him to take anything but milk, thankfully he's not lactose intolerant too. He eats a lot os tofu, chicken , pork, and seafood, green leafy veggies like spinach, also corn and fruits. He is a fan of my gluten-free breads, but I don't get to make then too often anymore, so he eats a good amount of steamed rice too. For lunches it's yogurt or cheese, fruit, and gluten-free snacks like pretzles and crackers.

Hope this helps a little.

    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
