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:)

    • Yeah but it does explain my slight reactions I get  randomly from those two foods. Wish there was a very well documented lab study. You know like 10-20 different brands testing 1 batch per week over the period of 12 months recording the gluten content to the PPM and posting it. Also a varied control of doing it twice once with washed once with unwashed.   Would love to see this kind of study done to just lay it out plain in a table of data instead of a huge written article of various opinions on what might be what could be, and OH this is safe for SOME. or IT COULD BE.
    • Always had a slight fear of diabetes myself due to my nerve issues was first thought by doctors to be diabetes. I will tell you something that I did for another reason that slammed that thought. I got a glucose monitor kit for like $14 for everything. And started checking my blood sugar for a few days making record of meals snacks, moods etc. IT did show that on the lower end of healthy and higher end is when my mood changed. BUT they were all well within your normal range of 90-135. Few times after waking up in the morning was a tad lower and after working out, but that depletes your glucose stores, and this ran with my binge eating urges....oddly for nuts and protein, and stevia tea.     But the fact is it showed my blood sugars changes very little in relations to my food, but more to do with my physical activity and stress, along with normal ranges so proved I was not diabetic at all in my mind. Congratulations on finding your regime and issues out so far, hope you nail down your other culprit. Might just take more healing and time an be nothing.
    • Have you taken lactose out of her diet?  Trouble digesting lactose might be a temporary side effect of Celiac Disease.  It is also possible to be lactose intolerant and Celiac.  You might try eliminating it and see if that helps.
    • In my opinion, this  author goes a bit over board with her "gluten is everywhere" agenda.  
    • Yes! They have been ruled out. All my nutrient and hormone levels are good!
