Allergies To Chicken, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Sunflower... What Can I Eat?
0

7 posts in this topic

I have celiac disease, and am very comfortable in my gluten free lifestyle. However a good friend of ours has a three yr old who was diagnosed with more allergies than I can remember, and now they have absolutely no clue what to feed him other than fruit! He is not diagnosed celiac as of yet, but who knows... so he does eat gluten. He is allergic to soy, dairy, chicken sometimes, all tree nuts, peanuts, corn, sunflower anything, and a few others I can't remember. I told them I would poke around here to see if anyone else had similar allergies, but can't seem to find anything. Any thoughts? So far they have bought a gallon of hemp milk (never heard of it) and are feeding him fruit cups, applesauce, and one finger food like teddy grahams that seems to meet the criteria. Any help you can offer would be VERY appreciated!!!

Well, I see references to allergies/intolerances/sensitivities to the things you've mentioned all the time on this board, but not necessarily all in one post or thread. From what I know, numerous allergies are often a sign of one or more underlying issues, usually of greater concern, though often overlooked/undetected.

IMHO, they should simply try the gluten-free diet and see what happens. It cannot hurt. Besides, the Celiac tests aren't very reliable in small children anyway.

I ate a lot of lamb and rice as a child because I had a lot of allergies and sensitivities. Basically, it's a lot of cooking. Breakfast is easy because he can eat wheat. A wheat cereal, eggs and toast, or even pancakes or waffles made from scratch will work. For lunch, sandwiches with a non-chicken meat, sliced vegetables, fruit. His mom can probably make soups he can eat, like homemade bean soups, turkey noodle instead of chicken, or beef stew. His mom will need to cook dinners, but it sounds like he can nave meats other than chicken, rice, potatoes, pasta, most vegetables, and his teddy grahams for desert. He needs lots of calcium-rich vegetables like spinach, turnip greens, and kale. There is calcium fortified orange juice available too.

I forgot to add he is also allergic to eggs, cooked or raw, which apparently ruins almost all store made bread... and cakes... and cookies... everything! Poor kiddo. Thanks for your responses, you confirmed what I already thought - underlying condition!!!

Well, we came home with such a list from the allergist last year(actually all on that list except chicken, plus some others) and that's after both of us being gluten-free for quite a while-years for me and over 1 for kiddo. We seem to have the genetic make-up that we become allergic to the foods that we frequently eat-Kiddo overdid apples last year and ended up allergic, I overdid chocolate and pumkin this year and now I'm allergic. Not overdoing one food and rotation and variety help. I'm thinking that we may be experiencing leaky gut. Check Leaky Gut Theory or Leaky Gut Syndrome. After avoiding these foods for a 6mos. to a year, we are no longer testing pos. to some and our symptoms have gone. We've ditched a few, at least for a while, so we can have them back.

But, my they are missing SO many things that could be included in this kiddo's diet. What about all the fresh meats and veggies?

Here are some possibilities, please have them check the ingredients because that list of avoids combines kiddo and my avoids.

I think the Erewhon rice cereals are corn-free

So Delicious coconut milk(the unsweetened tastes very neutral and is not thick like canned coconut milk

other coconut milk products-ice creams

Kirkland canned tuna(Costco) is soy-free

it's a little more expensive but pumpkin seed butter is available online(PB alternative)

they can still make puddings maybe with a starch other than corn and the coconut milk beverage

Namaste mixes are corn-free, check for other allergens

Glutenfreeda instant oatmeal-didn't see any corn when I checked the label today

flax meal can be used as an egg replacer in baked goods-google instructions, vegan sites may help as they are dairy and egg-free

I'm on the SCD diet that does not allow grains, sugar, soy, corn, or starchy veggies. Although your friend's son can eat some of these, they may benefit from the recipes on this SCD site: http://www.scdrecipe.com/home/

Here's a resource for parents who are considering trying the SCD diet for their child: http://pecanbread.com/p/intro/nt/introhome.html

Hope this helps.

What sort of allergic reaction(s) is the 3 YO having? Is it a gluten-like reaction? Rash? Runny nose / sinus reaction? Something else?

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
