DD has had sensitive skin/belly since birth. It's never been a huge problem, we try to not overload on dairy but otherwise it's been fine.

For the past year though she's been exceptionally gassy, farting quite a bit, mostly after she gets home from school. We tried a few weeks with no dairy but it made no difference. She hasn't complained of pain associated with the gas until two days ago. She's been tired and saying her stomach feels unsettled. There are things going around school right now so that could be part of it. The gas though has been a persistent problem.

I'm wondering if maybe this could be a wheat/gluten allergy. I know people with Celiac and know some of the symptoms of a gluten sensitivity, it seems to fit in some ways. Has anyone else had to deal with this?

Gluten definitely makes my DH gassy.
