My son was experience in the past yr 4 bouts of vomitting and diarrhea that smell so sickly and awful, at times he woke up in the middle of the night with pain in his stomach and what i have mentioned above, I had taken him to the E.R. and his Dr. and both said he caught a bug or something he ate but yet we both ate the same thing.He has also developed serious belching and gas when he eats certain things. I became concerned and asked his Dr. if he could be tested for celiac for I came back positive and heard that its heredity. The Dr. was skeptical and said its probably a stomach virus but i insisted!!! MY son came back positve as well, What can I do to help with his belching and gas? He is starting junior high and is afraid to eat in school because he feels embaressed. I dont want my son to starve. Any ideas, comments or thoughts fellow celiac members?

Hi, I was diagnoised with celiac disease in junior high as well. I was really nervous about bringing my "different" food to school. My mom ended up taking me on a one on one shopping trip to find the best tasting gluten free food we could find (It was really fun.) When I faced my insecurity and ate at school, I was shocked to find that my friends loved the food. I think that because I felt so confident about the food my mom bought me, my friends were more interested in trying it. About the belching and gas, I experience that as well. I find that tums work really well. Also, flushing your system out with a lot of water helps you recover faster. I know how embarrassing these symptoms can be considering I am also a teenager. I wish your son the best of luck.

    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?  
    • So I have started my daughter on a magnesium citrate supplement.  I also took a does the first night so I have an idea of its effects.  (background info: about a month ago she started asking for tums about once a week close to bedtime for acid reflux)   So the first night I noticed that it really bothered my stomach in the sense that it felt like I had a lot of stomach acid as a result.  I had no heartburn etc. but a definite feeling of "burning" in my stomach.  We both took it right before bed.  The next day she reported the same feeling - that it "upset" her stomach.   I cut the dose in half and also gave it to her earlier in the evening.  But tonight she reported "heartburn" after drinking it.   Is this an indicator of low stomach acid?  I realize that she should NOT be taking a Tums if that is the case but I can't tease out from what I am reading if this heartburn is an indicator of LOW stomach acid or LOTS of stomach acid.  Any thoughts?
    • Thanks Ennis_TX! That's what I was hoping to hear I've never been a big protein powder user even pre-diagnosis despite being a fairly high level endurance athlete, so my awareness of what's out there is low. I've always preferred "real food," however, I was trying to find a protein powder because I have some extended job-related travel coming up, and wanted a shelf-stable, safe protein source. I like that this one only has no flavouring agents/nutritional additives and sunflower seeds are an inherently nutritious real food.  The price for this powder is actually pretty good in my area as the company is based in Vancouver/Bellingham, which is where I live. I don't much care if the taste or texture is horrible as long as it doesn't make me sick!  Just wanted to make sure that this was the case. Thanks for the hemp protein suggestion as well.
    • You're right, RMJ!  Food additives are definitely my reason for eating whole foods! Lol I'm allergic to Sulfites used as preservatives or antimicrobial agents in foods.  Long ago, Sulfites used to be added to meats to keep them pink and fresh looking, but that practice was banned.  However, those little moisture absorbing pads under some cuts of meat are allowed to contain Sulfites.  I found that I reacted to meats packaged that way.   Ennis, I wonder if that could be a possible reason for your reaction to meat.  Have you had Lyme disease?  Some people who've been bitten by infected ticks develop an allergic reaction to meat.   Curious Kitty
