My kids are older so I don't remember how their bm's were at age 3..I watched my nephew yesterday and his bm was pretty mushy, like a newborn's would be. It was also light tan with a green tint...the green very noticeable. This kid hardly eats anything and I doubt he ate anything that would turn his stool greenish. He will only eat sausage, bacon, ham, pork chop and maybe corn. He does drink milk...I think maybe he has a milk allergy...he always sounds like he has a lot of nasal congestion and he breathes really heavy, I mean you could be across the room and hear him breathe. He is not overweight and is active...any advice?

As long as the poo isn't black or white, generally its fine. Does he have tummy troubles?

Did he by chance munch on a crayon? I have heard of this happening in small children who can sometimes eat them.

The same can happen with green colored candy.

Actually, those are signs (in the stool) that are classic with milk allergy.

No, no tummy troubles~no crayon eating or green candy!

"The slower-onset reaction is more common. Symptoms may include loose stools (possibly containing blood), vomiting, gagging, refusing food, irritability or colic, and skin rashes, like eczema. This type of reaction is more difficult to diagnose because the same symptoms may occur with other health conditions. Most kids will outgrow this form of allergy after 2 years of age, although some might not outgrow it until adolescence." From http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/allergies/milk_allergy.html#

    • Hi,  My 24 year old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease just about 4 years ago. She began having a hard time swallowing food and experiencing lots of acid so she had an Endoscopy last year and was positive for EoE. She had another allergy test done just after and found out she is also allergic to yeast. So we add that to her list of things she can’t eat along with shrimp and sesame seeds. We found a great allergist since she has asthma and horrible sinus allergies who was able to work with her GI doctor. Together they have her on a few different medications that seem to be really helping. She still has some dairy, like cheese on her tacos, but not much and stays away from yeast almost entirely. Just a side note for us girls, she had a lot of discharge and every Gynecologist said that it’s ‘normal’ and not to worry but as soon as she cut yeast out of her diet it has become a none issue. So being a Celiac definitely intertwines with other health issues. Keeping a food diary will be a big help in pin pointing what triggers your EoE.  Once you get a final diagnosis there are wonderful people on this forum to help guide you through this wonderful journey of living with Celiac Disease.   Good luck ☺️
    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
