  1. My son was diagnosed with EE 2 months ago when he was 26 months old. He did not have elevated eosinophils in his blood and his esophagus looked good during the endoscopy, (other...
  2. PM me and ask any questions you want. I'd be happy to help. I just don't check this site as regularly now. The best information I have found so far is at www.apfed.org. It's...
  3. Please also read up on eosinophilic esophagitis or other eosinophilic disorders. My son's high IgG was what led them to take biopsies and diagnose him with this after over a year...
  4. You're describing my oldest son when he was a baby. He projectile vomited after just about every feeding. We used bath towels instead of burp cloths and it would shoot out across...
  5. A few things I forgot to mention. First of all, celiac is much more likely as it occurs in 1/133 people. EE is fairly rare (1/10,000); however some have called it a mini-epidemic...
  6. The diet should give you better answers than any test, but it may take a little time for some of the symptoms to improve. Also, you mentioned GERD...is he taking medication for...

  10. This is how I understand it, too. But from what I understand, a person may see that wheat is a trigger, but not all gluten, if that makes sense? They could find out eventually...
  11. Sorry I'm just getting back to you on this. I talked to my friend again about the double-jointed / miscarriage correlation. She said that double jointed people have thicker blood...
  12. Please look up the symptoms for eosinophilic esophagitis. It mimics GERD, but does not respond to medication. Other symptoms include failure to thrive, diahrrea, vomiting, etc...
  13. Thanks Ursula! What I don't understand though is that it's not just food allergy. It can be from environmental allergies as well. Plus, from what I understand, you can have...
  14. He's 10 1/2. What you said about low IgA is exactly how our dr's described it...said it would be closer to o.
  15. CAn you explain this to me or give me some links that explain the connection as I have been unable to find anything showing this. I'm not saying it's NOT connected either...I would...
