My daughter thought she might be allergic to gluten she’s had blood test and stool test done but all come back normal, she went gluten free for a couple of months and felt fine but had to start eating gluten again for test she get bad pains in her stomach and can be sick, what else can I do to find out what making her feel this way
If she was fine when not eating gluten and having pain when she does, it would point to her having a gluten intolerance. Simple enough to just avoid gluten for a few months and see if that helps. As my doctor says, most of the tests used do not test deep enough and miss this.
My daughter has always tested negative her whole life on every type of allergy test for milk and soy but she is very allergic. I talked to her allergist and he said it is rare but not unheard of to test negative and have an allergy. If your daughter was better off it then do what feels right! She probably has an allergy.
It may not be an allergy, it could be Crohns of Celiac Disease. Neither of which would show up on an allergy test. If she felt better when avoiding gluten then she should just continue to avoid it, even if the tests say otherwise.
I would stop eating gluten if she has had the tests. In my opinion gluten is not very good for any of us. also, see if dairy is an issue. These two things often go hand in hand. Dont despair as there is a lot of other stuff she can eat and just think how well she will feel, once she has eliminated from her diet the food that, for her, is like poison! I know i feel really well now that i dont eat wheat, rye, barley, oats or dairy. In fact i now feel that this is positive as I have to eat healthily!
Just throwing this out there and I’m not sure where I found it, but there are people who thought they had a problem with gluten and it actually turned out that they had a problem with fructan. I don’t know if this helps or not, but it might be worth researching into it. I know how hard it can be to find answers, and I hope you can figure it out.
