In Topic: Promethius Lab Vs Enterolab

16 November 2007 - 11:48 AM

So thanks for everyone's thoughts on the lab issue. I am still trying to get my insurance to pay for the testing....I have submitted a "medical necessity" letter in hopes that they will pay. My doctor had no real opinion re Enterolab, but actually uses Prometheus regularly. I think my plan will be to see what my insurance will pay for and go from there as it would be impossible to have testing done if we have to pay out of pocket. what a wild ride this has been. We have been gluten-free, then back on g, then gluten-free again. not sure what is really helping. i guess if i had seen a really amazing response to gluten-free, i may be more likely to forego the testing all together and just keep on the diet. but since i really am not seeing a wonderful response and it is so difficult for my 1 year old to eat anything at all especially gluten-free i guess it would be worth it to know if we have to keep up the fight or not. so i will keep everyone posted. I am goign to start a new thread and post this response as well because i think this thread has long worn out it's usefullness!

Thanks for the info...I think I am going to try to go with Prometheus if I can get my insurance to cover

In Topic: Rice?

02 November 2007 - 02:28 AM

My one year old is allergic to rice....it is a very rare thing in this country our allergist says. Of course it is the first thing I gave him for solids and he would projectile vomit it every time. We had him tested (RAST) and sure enough. Also when I found out he was allergic, I gave it up too as I was nursing and his rash cleared up...he had had this rash for months.

Hi there, I am very new to all this too. We don't even have a diagnosis for my 1 year old, but I have learned SO much from everyone here on this board. I wish I could remember all the good postings I have read that sound similar to yours, but I guess I would just say keep reading and reading here on this board -especially the "parents with kids" section and you will soon have many suggestions. I personally am considering the enterolab testing that everyone has suggested, but I still haven't decided yet or I may just stay gluten-free for my little guy for now and see how it goes. It is a week today of gluten-free and we have it a little rough because of a known rice allergy. so many gluten-free foods are made with rice. but good luck and definitely keep reading on here. Everyone has been wonderful!

thanks! Do you use that baking mix alot? I mean is it a good substitute for any flour in a recipe? And yes, eggs and chocolate ok so far....My littlest one just turned 1 yesterday and I hav a 2 1/2 year old that I am considering going gluten-free for as well. and i find looking for stuff like bread and just basics like that is a real pain. Especially for picky eaters! i will try the cake, thanks again!
