Allergies To Chicken, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Sunflower... What Can I Eat?

7 posts in this topic

I have celiac disease, and am very comfortable in my gluten free lifestyle. However a good friend of ours has a three yr old who was diagnosed with more allergies than I can remember, and now they have absolutely no clue what to feed him other than fruit! He is not diagnosed celiac as of yet, but who knows... so he does eat gluten. He is allergic to soy, dairy, chicken sometimes, all tree nuts, peanuts, corn, sunflower anything, and a few others I can't remember. I told them I would poke around here to see if anyone else had similar allergies, but can't seem to find anything. Any thoughts? So far they have bought a gallon of hemp milk (never heard of it) and are feeding him fruit cups, applesauce, and one finger food like teddy grahams that seems to meet the criteria. Any help you can offer would be VERY appreciated!!!

Well, I see references to allergies/intolerances/sensitivities to the things you've mentioned all the time on this board, but not necessarily all in one post or thread. From what I know, numerous allergies are often a sign of one or more underlying issues, usually of greater concern, though often overlooked/undetected.

IMHO, they should simply try the gluten-free diet and see what happens. It cannot hurt. Besides, the Celiac tests aren't very reliable in small children anyway.

I ate a lot of lamb and rice as a child because I had a lot of allergies and sensitivities. Basically, it's a lot of cooking. Breakfast is easy because he can eat wheat. A wheat cereal, eggs and toast, or even pancakes or waffles made from scratch will work. For lunch, sandwiches with a non-chicken meat, sliced vegetables, fruit. His mom can probably make soups he can eat, like homemade bean soups, turkey noodle instead of chicken, or beef stew. His mom will need to cook dinners, but it sounds like he can nave meats other than chicken, rice, potatoes, pasta, most vegetables, and his teddy grahams for desert. He needs lots of calcium-rich vegetables like spinach, turnip greens, and kale. There is calcium fortified orange juice available too.

I forgot to add he is also allergic to eggs, cooked or raw, which apparently ruins almost all store made bread... and cakes... and cookies... everything! Poor kiddo. Thanks for your responses, you confirmed what I already thought - underlying condition!!!

Well, we came home with such a list from the allergist last year(actually all on that list except chicken, plus some others) and that's after both of us being gluten-free for quite a while-years for me and over 1 for kiddo. We seem to have the genetic make-up that we become allergic to the foods that we frequently eat-Kiddo overdid apples last year and ended up allergic, I overdid chocolate and pumkin this year and now I'm allergic. Not overdoing one food and rotation and variety help. I'm thinking that we may be experiencing leaky gut. Check Leaky Gut Theory or Leaky Gut Syndrome. After avoiding these foods for a 6mos. to a year, we are no longer testing pos. to some and our symptoms have gone. We've ditched a few, at least for a while, so we can have them back.

But, my they are missing SO many things that could be included in this kiddo's diet. What about all the fresh meats and veggies?

Here are some possibilities, please have them check the ingredients because that list of avoids combines kiddo and my avoids.

I think the Erewhon rice cereals are corn-free

So Delicious coconut milk(the unsweetened tastes very neutral and is not thick like canned coconut milk

other coconut milk products-ice creams

Kirkland canned tuna(Costco) is soy-free

it's a little more expensive but pumpkin seed butter is available online(PB alternative)

they can still make puddings maybe with a starch other than corn and the coconut milk beverage

Namaste mixes are corn-free, check for other allergens

Glutenfreeda instant oatmeal-didn't see any corn when I checked the label today

flax meal can be used as an egg replacer in baked goods-google instructions, vegan sites may help as they are dairy and egg-free

I'm on the SCD diet that does not allow grains, sugar, soy, corn, or starchy veggies. Although your friend's son can eat some of these, they may benefit from the recipes on this SCD site: http://www.scdrecipe.com/home/

Here's a resource for parents who are considering trying the SCD diet for their child: http://pecanbread.com/p/intro/nt/introhome.html

Hope this helps.

What sort of allergic reaction(s) is the 3 YO having? Is it a gluten-like reaction? Rash? Runny nose / sinus reaction? Something else?

    • Tapioca is also a common source for "modified food starch."
    • Thanks for all your help. I got my new test results in. I'm surprised by how fast they came back. It is a different lab (different insurance) and fortunately, it is easier to read, but unfortunately, the results still seem a bit off from a clear cut answer.  Gliadin DP Igg was elevated,  along with my EMA.  The tTG IgA was not elevated on this test, although it was equivocal last time but on a completely different scale since it was from a different lab.     It seems odd that the tTG IgA is lower. Does anyone know anything about that?  At the same time, EMA and Gliadin DP IgG are higher.   I appreciate everyone's input. Until now, I have only been seeing an endocrinologist and my primary care.  They both seem to be aware of celiac but not incredibly confident in navigating the diagnosis.  My endo shrugged off the first test results as not that high.  Obviously, I don't want to have celiac, but I wanted a second opinion.  I was glad that my primary care wanted to at least look at tests again. I'm not sure yet what the next steps will be.   Celiac Serology Profile with Reflex to Endomysial Antibody (EMA), IgA Titer by IFA   NAME VALUE REFERENCE RANGE F Endomys. IgA Screen Positive  A Neg. at 1:5 ("") F Endomys. IgA Titer 1:10  A Not Indicated (titer) F IgA 161 70-400 (mg/dL) F TTG IgA 10.7 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive F Interp Data See Note  ("") - Test Negative Positive - Gliadin IgA 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - Gliadin IgG 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - TTG IgA 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - EMA Titer >= 1:5 F Interp Test: See Result Note:  ("") - RESULT INTERPRETATION: - Results support a diagnosis of Celiac disease. - TTG, IgA EMA,IgA AGA,IgA AGA,IgG Total IgA - -------- ------- ------- ------- --------- - Neg Pos Neg Pos N/A F Gliadin DP IgG 16.7  H 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive F Gliadin DP IgA 4.3 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive
    • In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement.  If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask.  I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company.  they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is.  Its a law in the US and Canada.    
    • Progresso soup check the label on their gluten free products, modified food starch is not gluten free.
    • A recent issue of JAMA, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) critically examines screening for celiac disease in asymptomatic adults, adolescents, and children. Celiac disease exhibits a broad spectrum of symptoms, from subtle or no symptoms to severe malabsorption. Celiac diagnoses have increased significantly over the past few decades, in part because of greater awareness, but possibly because of an actual increase in disease rates. Researchers estimate current rates of celiac disease at 0.71% among US adults, and 0.76% among US children. View the full article
