After being Gluten free for over a month now I thought that my daugther has been symptom free. All of a sudden she started vomiting today. She is only 8 months old only eats gluten thru my breast milk. I did notice the rash start to appear about two days ago but because it was in a different location this time I was hoping that it was not the Celiac. I need some advice and someone to tell me it will be ok. I feel like this is all my fault and I can't fix it. She is still smaller than she was 3 months ago when this all began. Any advice and support we will gladly accept.

My youngest (who spurred the whole gluten/dairy free diet in our family) had many symptoms that led me to try the elimination diet when breastfeeding (I bf until he was 2 yrs). Whenever I slipped up, he would pay the price with vomiting, constipation or the opposite, writhing in pain, and rashes that turned into open sores in any given location - head to toe. You've brought back memories that bring tears to my eyes. I was very hard on myself and it's been a long healing journey - not just the healing of our gluten sensitive bodies, but our spirit too. It was only after being glutenfree myself (for him), that I discovered that I had a big problem too. My bit of advice is to recognize and accept that living with a gluten sensitivity is sometimes trial and error. And I reassure myself that these accidental incidences of exposure are less harmful than going a lifetime without recognizing the damage that could have been incurred on a daily basis. My children and I still get exposed to gluten accidentally...we make it through together. You will too.

I can't think of anything new and because she was symptom free for so long (1 month) I stopped journaling everything I ate. She did get her immunizations but they told me that there wasn't gluten in them. My oldest still eats gluten along with my husband and they wash their hands and brush their teeth before they touch her but I was wondering if trace amounts of gluten can cause such a severe reaction. I am so glad to have people to talk to. This is the scariest thing I have ever had to deal with because its my baby:(.

I never eat out now. I live in a small town that I know doesn't provide gluten free preparation of food. I did get a coke at Sonic one day. I do worry about the cross contamination with her at daycare but they have assured me that they are careful. I feel like its something at home that I'm missing.

My boys have also had food sensitivities beyond wheat & dairy - it made my food journaling experience such a frustrating one! I became fanatic about everything I ingested. At one point I was only eating "Free From..." chicken, organic rice and broccoli. Finally, we broke down and saw a NAET practitioner, and started getting answers. Root cause. Their allergies have been eliminated thanks to NAET, but dairy and wheat linger.

I used (and still do...) arnica ointment and calendula ointment (Boiron) on rashes - they reacted to everything else. I would literally hear a sigh escape when I put the ointment on them.

I could go on a rant about immunizations - but I'll save that for another day, when I'm feeling brave enough to take the flack.

That would depend her level of sensitivity. It varies greatly. In our household, my son and I kept getting sick until my husband and daughter also went gluten free. We tried everything in terms of being careful with their gluten. My son and I are sensitive to extremely low levels. From what I have read, it isn't uncommon for a gluten free household to be necessary.

I can't help but be wary about a daycare that is not gluten-free, no matter how careful they claim to be. If there are other kids eating non-gluten-free foods, there is always the risk of contamination, and a few crumbs on the floor are all it takes for a kiddo the age of yours. Just something to consider.

Are you gluten free also? She could be reacting to gluten in your diet as well. The other posters gave you some very helpful information also to consider. Hoe your little one feels better soon.

Yes I am gluten because I am nursing. We are planning on having a gluten free household soon but we can't afford to throw away what we already had prior to the diagnosis. Thank you for the well wishes:)

    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.  
    • Another thing to investigate is SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can cause all of these symptoms. There is a breath test to check for it which any GI doctor should know about, although you have a better chance of knowledge at a teaching hospital.  There's a lot of new research in this area. Here is more information: http://www.siboinfo.com/overview.html The current thought is that many IBS cases are actually SIBO. The treatment requires antibiotics (standard or herbal, both work) and dietary adjustments to reduce fermentable carbs so as not to feed the bacteria.  If it is very advanced, it can take multiple courses of treatment and for some people it seems to be chronic. There is always an underlying cause. Food sensitivities and malfunctioning migrating motor complex are the two big ones. Also structural problems with the intestines that slow motility is another.  There is a high prevelance of SIBO in gluten intolerance. My theory is that it is the neuro toxicity of gluten in susceptible individuals that slows gut transit and sets up a perfect condition for bacterial overgrowth.  But I'm not a doctor  I just have a daughter with chronic SIBO and gluten intolerance that manifests itself in neurological symptoms.   You might want to look into it.  The above website is a treasure trove of information.
