  1. Possible SCD for my 12 year old.

    I am sorry if I misunderstood your question, and I did assume you were trying to be helpful. I did ask his doctor what he should eat and he basically just answered , "Not those foods," and points to the allergy list. Btw, he doesn't have the best bedside manner, lol. They did do a Celiac test on him and it was negative, but they said there is another kind they need to check as well? I definitely will look into the dietitian thing though.
  2. Possible SCD for my 12 year old.

    The first test they did a few months ago was a blood test. The test they did today was a scratch test. Hth
  3. Hello, I was wondering if a modified SCD might be helpful for my 12 year old son. He was diagnosed a few months ago with an allergy to wheat, rice, corn, peanuts, and tomatoes. IKR! This diagnosis came after a year or more of his constant struggle with nausea, indigestion, rash, and gas. On a side note--which may be of import here--he has been dealing with behavioral disorders for years. He has a current diagnoses of OCD with generalized anxiety for which he takes medication. As if that allergy list alone hasn't made shopping impossible, today his GI added sweet potatoes, milk, shellfish, and oats to the list after his allergy test. So while shopping and agonizing over what I was going to put in his lunch tomorrow (the loss of cheese was a blow to him), I came home and did some research. I think that this SCD might be a good start for him, with modification for milk and nuts of course. Also the GI doctor never acts like any of this is a big deal; is it common for a kid to have this many allergies? Any input or suggestions would be super helpful here as we are feeling very overwhelmed.
