In Topic: Bumps In Throat?

Yesterday, 07:06 PM

Back when my daughter was diagnosed allergy testing was suggested.  She went on an elimination diet to try and identify food "triggers".  The elimination diet was avoiding all top allergens and peas.  During that time she tried some amino acid formulas to help get extra nutrition without a reaction.  And keep in mind that once the eosinophils are activated they can continue causing damage for up to 12 days.  She had a follow up scope to see if the diet helped.  (It did she was clear of all damage.)  Then she challenged each suspect food back into her diet. 


Take your time chewing your food.  Slurpees are somewhat considered "non-food" and can be very soothing to your throat.  Cucumbers, honey, teas, and lettuce were also soothing for her.

Have you been scoped and tested for Eosinophilic Esohagitis?

I hope the school will adapt the class for kids with food allergies.  For instance having to budget for allergen free foods will be a lifelong necessity.  Reading food labels and the importance of having companies clearly label ingredients.


Kids should also be taught life skills of managing bank accounts, credit cards with a high interest rate, mortgages, how to count up for correct change, and just how to mange money and budget.

If you move in and your mom is willing, I would make the kitchen gluten free.  I do understand that it is your dad's house too, but the health risk for you is too much.  Find some Udi's bread (think it is the best on the market and bought stock in it) for dad to eat- I don't think he will complain.


Sorry, I really think it is early dementia.  My husband who was not Celiac or symptomatic told me there was no way gluten was coming into our home if it made our daughter sick.  Dad can eat gluten when he goes out.

I guess I didn't point out yeast directly, but that is part of the good bacteria / microbes that are necessary to break down food being out numbered by yeast to properly digest.


Very cool to find an animal study and human cases for comparison.  (As the human can explain and have others describe the symptoms; the poor animal unfortunately dies.
