Worse Tummy Aches Now Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My 5 year old daughter had an endoscopy just under a month ago (which confirmed celiac). That day we went gluten-free. The first week she was super cranky and we thought maybe it was withdrawal but looked forward to her feeling better... especially her moods. It feels like things have only gotten worse since going gluten-free. How is that possible?

Last night for example she woke up kicking and screaming. Turned out her tummy was hurting so badly, for a while I started worrying it was her appendix. It seems like in the last 2 weeks she has been getting "stingy" tummy aches. At first I thought it could be from milk but I am not so sure. Yesterday she had no milk. She DID have a chili from a restaurant, that was supposed to be gluten free but I suppose there is no guarantee a crump didn't get in there.

Is it possible that after being gluten-free for such a short time her reactions could get worse so quickly? I am not even convinced that she has been 100% gluten-free. We did a big clean out and have made our house gluten-free. Got a new toaster... cleaned all the cupboards etc. However I have found a few things that we missed.

I am feeling really overwhelmed. I thought it would be a lot easier and that we wouldn't be just a couple weeks in and be having these kinds of issues.

I would love and thoughts or feedback. Did anyone go through something similar?

Many Thanks.

It is possible she was glutened. Another thing to look at is what has increased in her diet? There is a possibility the new thing you have replaced gluten with is a problem. I would keep a detailed food log and symptoms to see if there is a correlation.

Poor thing, I hope she gets better soon... Personally, I wouldn't eat out for a while.

Hope things improve soon.

She probably still is. Also, remember, foods that are spicy or heavy on a stomach are not really good when your healing. Stick with things that are on the mild side for a while.

Another thing is she could still be going through withdrawl. Heck, it took me a good two months to get over it.

    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?

    • I really miss Pizza. I've tried many different brands but never that good. I stick with the Freshetta gluten-free pizza. It has the CSA symbol on it meaning that it has gone through some of the strictest tests there are and can test down to 5ppm I think. It's about as close to the real deal that I've come across.
