In Topic: Diagnosis Age And Sensitivity Realtion

Thank you to both of you!
When Simon was 2 months old he developed severe rashes that by 6 months had been linked to food allergies- dairy and egg. He had wheat for the first time at 12 months- birthday cake- and of course it was constantly introduced after that .....and over the next six months was sick with "stomach bugs" that never completely healed on 3 week cycles. He lost weight but it was hard for the doc to be concerned because although he had been in 10Oth percentile he was still in 80th percentile. He was a good nurser still and did not get dehydrated but had the distended belly and constant tummy upset. Our doc checked w/ the allergy doc who said Simon had not tested positive for a wheat allergy and it was not likely food related. But at the scheduled followup visit and "recheck" of allergies wheat and rye revealed themselves as allergens. We did a blood test that was "absolutely positive" and stopped gluten in any form. After 2 days the diarrhea slowed and vomiting ceased. After a few weeks the belly went to a normal shape. After a month Simon was eating us out of house and home! And for 2 well checks now he has gained "weight but not height". This summer he has SPROUTED up tall.
He is happier, sleeps better, is learning and talking quickly,and healthy!!!

I appreciate your input on the age thing!

In Topic: Modified Corn Starch

I wonder the same thing about modified corn starch but primarily because it was in a food I gave my son who is celiac and he reacted. Hmmm....maybe it was something else in it that he reacted to?
