Allergy Testing For A 20 Month Old?

Recommended Posts

Guest gf_mummy

I was just wondering about something here. My dd Lily-Rose was DX'd as Celiac early in early 2006.

Her EMA was slightly elevated, but it gave the doc. enough proof that Gluten needed to be eliminated because my son was DX'd through positive biopsy.

She has had very strange poop for months now. Its yellow, sometimes greyish, really awful smelling (i'm not joking she can clear a room!!) Shes had 3 sinus infections so far this winter and has bags under her eyes all the time. She coughs only at night. Shes not gained any weight in about 3 months, and is mildly anemic.

My Ped. says that he is going to send her in for allergy tests, but I heard somewhere that diagnosing allergies in a child this young is sometimes unreliable. I was wondering of this is true, and also what allergies her symtoms could be related to????

I know she has been gluten-free because I keep everything in separate cuboards, use our own toaster etc. etc etc..

I'm just worried about this because we can't even get in too see the allergist for a few weeks!! ARGH!

I do know that scratch tests are unreliable, if that is what he is sending her for.

Why don't you try the forums here: http://www.allergicliving.com/. I bet they can help.
