Recommended Posts

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.
