I'm sorry to say that I no longer trust the medical professionals. My last post was to announce that the allergist cleared my 5 year old of his wheat, egg and possibly even dairy allergies. She prescribed slowly introducing wheat into his diet, followed two weeks later by egg, then dairy at the beginning of the year.
Fortunately, I trusted my instincts and went slowly. One month after slowly introducing wheat back into his diet, he erupted in a serious case of eczema all over his body. Nothing else has changed. The poor kid is miserable.
That is because an allergic reaction, an IgE response, is different from an IgG response. He may not be allergic (no IgE response) but he is definitely still IgG sensitive. And that stinks. So, we're back to no wheat, still no eggs and definitely no dairy.
The worst part is that I feel like I wasted my money. I feel let down by the medical professionals, again. I wish I had unlimited funds to have him tested for more foods than the five or so we had him tested for two years ago. I would have a full panel done so that I can see what else might be causing his growth issues and his skin problems.
Back to the drawing board...
