Just curious if anyone has experienced better effort from an allergist/immunologist than the gastro?
We have been working with the gastro since Sept to identify what my 2yr olds problems are, or the source of her chronic 'functional diarrhea.'
Her IgA was negative, so the gastro is standing firm on not celiac.
I pushed for a RAST allergy testing and now that we identified a soy and peanut allergy, we've moved to an allergist. She's still under the care of the gastro due to her reflux and bowel issues, but she has become dismissive now that a confirmed food allergy has been found. We are set to schedule the endoscope after June if the problems continue.
We've eliminated soy, but its only been a couple weeks so its too early for any dramatic improvement. I believe there is something else as the cause of her chronic issues, so we will likely continue more allergy testing, and I plan to push for the IgG test since the gastro refused.
Basically, did anyone actually get diagnosed from an immunologist rather than a gastro?
