the specialist at our local childrens hospital told us our daughter in no way had issues with gluten as her ttg was normal the two times it was tested, and the fact she was growing

well we decided to trust mommy instinct, and 2 days gluten free i have my happy, spunky, funny 2 yr old back, no 2 hr tantrums, no clinging to my side

we are going back to our original gastro, he suggested gluten-free no matter what the tests said, and he was right!

I don't care what a test says...it can be wrong! If she's better off of it, keep it that way! Glad you trusted yourself!

Our youngest has a little lump above her belly button. I asked her ped about it and she listened to it with the stethoscope and told me what it was but forgot the name. She said it's nothing to worry about but I keep a close eye on it.

Yay for everyone trusting their mommy instincts! If I didn't trust my mommy instincts I would have two very sick girlies right now!

    • I used to worry I was having a heart attack. The symptoms, a pressing, intense chest pain on left side of chest lasting several minutes sometimes. I went through extensive cardio tests and when they turned up negative was told to live with it. I had bouts of it through my life until I went gluten free for entirely different symptoms. Getting rid of those pains was an unexpected but welcome side effect. It's unpleasant and scary but at least if you know that's the case you have an explanation. Don't let that stop you from seeking medical advice if it persists or is different in any way however.  This is, as ever, good advice: Just think about a busy pizza place on a weekend. Flour in the air and on the hands of kitchen staff. Someone phones in an order. Are they 'really' gluten free or just (insert stereotype) hipster posers impressing their friends with their fad diet. Either way no time to change gloves or use different tools. etc etc. It's a high risk environment.  It sucks, but in these first few months particularly you're better errring on the side of caution.   
    • ???? Lundberg do not use oats in ANY of their products. check the grains section http://www.lundberg.com/products/grains/ I guess try lotus if it still bothers you.....you might be like me and all grains/carbs cause some kind of gut issues. I had to go paleo/keto.....thought for years it was just bad gut bacteria but ended up being another AI issues that reacted to carbs.
    • Unfortunately I have a intolerance to oats so Lundberg bothers me. Thanks so much though. 
    • Thank you guys! Great info and I'm researching your suggestions RIGHT now. I am sure I will have questions - I will ask my doc about vitamin deficiency testing and I will NOT do that gluten challenge!
    • Oh wow!  I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature!  Have you heard of Dr Nemechek?  https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/ His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin.  It is all very fascinating and falling in with what we are seeing with our daughter. In a nutshell he says that the bacteria that has overpopulated is "damaging" the system (second brain).  That they are meant to stay in the colon but start to grow out (for multiple reasons) and expand into areas of the intestines that should be populated by other area specific bacteria.  They slowly take over and expand out further.  Probiotics feed EVERYTHING and make the SIBO worse and Antibiotics kills EVERYTHING and does nothing to solve the problem either.  There is one antibiotic - Rifaximin that stays in the colon and does not permeate its walls.  Other than that he suggests that you FEED the good bacteria and allow them to thrive and naturally win back the territory.  Inulin is the food that they eat and taking Inulin (Chickory root fibre) will nourish the healthy bacteria.  3 months ago we stripped away Gluten and dairy and saw HUGE results and then lost them.  We also introduced a very high quality multi-strain probiotic.  Dr Nemechek says that the fact that some people see gains when they go gluten-free/DF because they essentially "starve" the bad bacteria and there is a bit of a dying off.  But it is not fixing the core issue and often you can see food intolerances and symtoms worsen even though you are still gluten-free/DF.  This is EXACTLY the dynamic we are seeing with our daughter.  She is eating AIR but is still in pain and now her Sensory issues seem worse than ever (thanks to the probiotic maybe)? He also says that the healthy bacteria secrete an acidic compound that kills off the bad bacteria which also explains why some people feel better when they consume ACV. I find the entire thing fascinating!
