So, yesterday I decided it was just time! (Thanks so the encouragement here!) And so I went to the store and starting from dinner on my 4 year old (and me!) have been gluten-free. She has been SOOOO sick lately...I mean, I have been seriously worried about her (aside from her being a mess digestively and having inflammation on a recent scope), she also has had no stamina, has not wanted to do anything, has been falling asleep at the drop of hat, so grouchy, huge meltdowns over tiny things, etc.

Welp, here we are 24 hours later and she will. not. shut. up. Honestly, she cannot stop talking! She is going on and on and on like I have never seen her do in her entire life! It is like the life is back in her -- she's walking around talking and talking and hubby gets home and she's talking and talking. It is hilarious! But, this is the first day in a week she didn't fall asleep on the couch right before dinner!

It has to be a coincidence, right!? This can't be the no gluten, right?

We went for an x-ray today so we'll know tomorrow if she's backed up -- but even if she is, she's sure in a better mood! Thank goodness!

This could very well be the result of no gluten even so soon for your daughter. Kids are so much more resilient than we adults are! And she's only had 4 yrs. to get damaged --- adults have been getting damaged for decades & decades.

Enjoy!smile.gif

The younger the person, the quicker the recovery. I was 46 and began experiencing relief within a week. It took months for a full recovery, but I saw noticeable improvement in a much shorter time frame.

Wow -- I am enjoying it, for sure! This is amazing!! Now, she's up (again) in the middle-of-the-night-very-early-morning, but instead of crying and saying her tummy hurts, she came in saying she was hungry!? Don't tell me this is a result of gluten-free, too!? I am kind of STUNNED. My best friend is Celiac and she said it took months for her to feel better, but again, she was in her 20s so maybe that was why? Also, in Gracie's recent scope she didn't test positive for Celiac so there's no actual damage at this point, might be just a gluten intolerance or sensitivity getting much worse...because I seriously can't believe this!?

My 7 year old was diagnosed when he was 5 almost 6. He suddenly became hungry ALL the time. It was nonstop for about 2 weeks and then it tapered off. He is hungry all the time again, but he is going through another growth spurt at the moment. :P

My son was diagnosed by endoscopy almost 3 weeks ago. We noticed a change after about 2-3 days. His abdomen was less bloated within 1 day. He was running and playing instead of sitting on the couch and watching t.v. We are almost 3 weeks in and his belly still hurts, but pain is less severe and he is much more active.

This is such a nice thread. :) :) I'm so glad you decided to take her off gluten, just to see if it helped, and I'm so glad to see it helped a lot. :)

That is so wonderful. Just keep it up and watch her get stronger and more vibrant every day. More parents should be as aware as you are.

My son started feeling better within 24 hours. The change over the first few days was unbelievable. Here we are 10 weeks later and he has gained 15 pounds and is a totally different 14 year old. Thank God we found out what the problem was. Celiacs Disease is easy to manage once you are aware that he or she has it.

My little one was also 4 when we went totally gluten-free with him. I noticed a huge, immediate difference right away. And he had already been wheat free for two years! But removing all of the gluten turned him into a totally different kid. It was WONDERFUL! I'm so happy for you!!! :D

    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
    • The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.
