My son is 2.5 he's fine other than diarreah for 5 days staright. He's going 2-3 times a day and it's straight liquid. His main symptom before being diagnosed was Constipation though. can this be from Gluten? If I called the GI dr what would he tell me to do? Make sure he's drinking (check) Pedialite(check) He's eating totally normal (check) No fever, no cold sweats, no irritability. What would you do? Is this a bug or gluten reaction? If it's a gluten reaction, How long should the diarreah last? thanks

Could be a bug, could be a glutening. Hard to know. I know one of my boys, even now at 16, gets a stomach virus, he feels fine & eats fine but has some diarhea for a few days. The true test of being well - hydrated is peeing. He isn't a Celiac. Also, is he getting enough fiber to form stools? Something to consider.

If he is well hydrated, a doc will likely tell you to give it another week of normal diet, glutening or virus.

We are not doctors. But, yes, keep him well hydrated until you can make an appointment for him.

We are not doctors. I would hydrate your child as best as can be and watch him closely. Five days of liquid stools is not good. Do you have a medical phone line you can call?

Sorry. I missed his age. I guess I thought he was a bit older. I would call the pediatrician. He is pretty young. You would want a doctor to evaluate if he is dehydrated, etc.

I dont know of any Numbers to call as far as hotlines. My son is drinking alot and peeing pretty normal. What I am thinking of giving him cream of rice for breakfast and some toast. He ate corn and meatloaf for dinner. He's waking up 3 times a night for a drink fill up and peeing on the potty each time he does. He went along time today without peeing but we were playing outside all day. I just hate to waste to run him to the dr for them to tell me what to do exactly what i'm already doing. I'm also concerned because he's lost weight over the last 5 days. That really bothers me. Tomorrow i'm going to step up the calories and fiber! Seems like he's fine until he eats, then it's diarreah right away! and lots of gas!

I'll call his Ped in the morning and see what the nurse says to do. I don't believe he's dehydrated but he is losing weight.

:) That's probably a good thing. Let us know.

Ok. This is a little more info. Definetly go in for a sick child visit tomorrow. At the least, they will send you home with nothing but....it will now be on record. If he isn't better in a few more days, you have " proof". Makes them take it more seriously. Hope the little dude is OK.

Start any kind of probiotic for his gut.

5 days of "D" his tummy balance is surely out of sorts. BRAT diet. Bananas, rice, applesuace, and gluten free toast. Any type of electrolyte drinks (watch out for too high of sugar level but I don't believe in articial sugar (aspartme at all). Probiotics any way you can start them like yogurt or chew tabs for kids. (could help long term for constipation too)

Dehydration happens fast, and honestly you know it when you see it. sunken eyes, chapped lips, no tears, and very lethargic. Keeping track of the last time they urinated is also important, but when the visuals cues are there I really don't care the last time they urinated so much.

There are some none invasive tests that can be done. Like stool testing for parasites.

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
