Hi

I suffer from food, latex, enviromental allergies.. Some anaphlaxis others just a PITA..

But I am here cause of my dd who is almost 3.. She was intolarant to soy under the age of 2 but now seems fine with it..
But she also has a bad allergie to Milk protiens, wheat/gluten intolarnace, allergie to strawberries,bluesberris, raspberries.. we are not sure about blackberries, or other"berries'(minus cherries) but we are to avoid them due to her reaction last summer to raspberries that had us with a 6 hr ER stay..

They don't bleive that this is all her allergies either.. She suffers from GERD as well as other gastro problems and asthma as well..

We are awaiting to see an allergist in town.. To get a RAST test done, now that she will be 3..
We are hoping that there is no more allergies, but suspect there is due to her gut reactions(GI problems) she gets, that are similar to her reactions to milk.. I am just hoping that it is not the Soy..

So that is my little ones allergies that we know of..

So hi.. :D

Hello and welcome,

As an infant and child, my allergies manifested *only* as GI problems and a runny nose. Do not write off the GI problems as *other*. I went undiagnosed for years.

If you get relief for her allergies, you may see a decrease in the GI reactions.

I will raise the link on "Anaphylaxis and Emergency Treatment" in the Resources section of this site. (Even many ER Docs aren't aware that you can have GI allergic symptoms, with no hives.) And this is a good link to print out and keep. Basicially a when to use the Epi chart.

By the way...strawberries, raspberries, blackberries... Rose family.
Blueberries are in the Heath family.

Take care,
Daisy

My dd milk protien allergie went undeceted for a year, it wasn;t until we had a endscope and biospy done for reflux that we descovered the allergies..
THe milk allerige will flatten I fogret what they are called but it flattend the intestings, and stops her from absorbing her food, and causes servre bloating and abdominal spames..

We still believe that she has some allergie or other issue, due to the fact that she still bloats severly, had bowel issues as well..
She has never broken out in a hive from milk proteins.. Just the fruit.. and thanks for the classifaction on the fruits..Never knew that. as we are still waiting to see an allergiest but there is a more then a yr wait..

Are you on the cancellation list for the allergist? If you are, you may get seen quicker. They would call you when someone cancels an appointment. You'd have to be able to go with little notice.

Hi there - and Welcome. I'm glad you've found us and hope we can be of some help. We can at least offer sympathy. :)

I agree with Susan that it would be a good idea to be put on a cancellation list. If you become a bit of a (polite) "squeaky wheel" you will likely get in to see the allergist faster. Along with asking to be put on the list you could call every few weeks to ask if there have been any cancellations. Sometimes you just happen to call on the right day and get in. Make sure they have all your phone numbers, including cell phone if you have one, and ask them to call all the numbers if a cancellation comes up so that you can reply right away. (They might not do that, but at least it shows you are serious about getting in for an appt.)

Your daughter's situation sound serious enough that you shouldn't have to wait for a year... (yikes).

Has anyone mentioned speaking to a GI specialist? Daisy - would that help do you think?

K.

HI

We are still waiting on the referall to go through.. Our allrgiest here in town serves 6 differetn towns, which is why it is so hard to get in and get tested.. We have had bllod test done for allergies since she was 4 months of age, but all have come back neg..

She hasn't been tested for anything since she was a year old.. She is now almost 3...

We already see a GI (ped) at Childerns hospital..We have been seeing him since she was 11 months, for FTT, Relfux, and Deleayed gastric empting...
She has been trhough many tests, and meds in her short life..

WE are hoping that when we do get into see the allergist and get some a RAST test done that we may find some answers for her GI issues(minue the reflux)...

Thank you all for answersing..
I have many food allergies and had wished the none of my kids would end up with them..
It is so very hard , everything seem to have milk in it or hidden milk or wheat.. Makes it hard..
