Allergy Resources – Facebook?!

Posted 10.20.09 | Nutrition Specialist

FacebookFacebook might not be the first place you think to look when it comes to searching for info about your child with food allergies or other GI conditions. In fact, I was a little hesitant when someone suggested we start up a Neocate Facebook fan page. But as I’ve become more familiar with the tool, I’ve discovered that there are many great fan pages and groups on Facebook devoted to the topic of food allergies. And it really is a helpful tool for connecting to other parents that might be going through similar situations and share stories, news and advice.

Some of my Facebook favorites include:

You can also join the discussion on the Neocate fan page. We sometimes offer coupons to Fans and parents have found that it’s a good place to share their stories with other parents, get answers to their Neocate and allergy-related questions, and keep up to date on allergy related news and more!

    Hi Veronica,
      We hear what you’re describing from a lot of new Neocate parents, and some of us (who have Neocate relatives) have experienced this firsthand. Because Neocate has a different protein source from other formulas, it is digested a bit differently, which can explain what you’re experiencing. Here are a few blog posts related to your question, with some other Q&A’s that may help:
      If you still have further questions, the best thing to do would be to contact your son’s healthcare team to seek their advice.
    Best of luck,
