...flu. But I could tell it was more than that. A child with FPIES may seem to have a severe stomach bug, but the “bug” only starts a couple hours after consuming the offending food. Many FPIES parents have rushed their children to the ER, limp from extreme, repeated projectile vomiting, only to hear, “It’s the stomach flu.” However, the next time they feed their children the same solids, the dramatic symptoms return, often more...

...appointment: What symptoms have you observed? Itching, swelling, skin rash (hives), vomiting, and difficulty breathing are the most common symptoms due to immediate onset (IgE mediated) food allergy. These can occur individually or collectively. What is the timing of onset? IgE mediated food allergies can occur within minutes of ingestion, almost always within a few hours. Delayed onset allergies (milk protein allergy in newborns) may not occur for 1-2 days. How long did the symptoms...

...Restricted Diet a cautionary tale A restricted diet is a question i get a lot. I met a family a short time ago after their allergist referred them to me. The little girl was having issues with eczema, generalized rashes, nasal congestion, some sinus infections, and occasional upper respiratory infections. The allergist had conducted blood work and skin prick testing to determine food allergy to explain her symptoms. The allergist told me that he...
Cow Milk Allergy Diet and Management
03/29/2022
There is currently no cure for a cow milk protein allergy (CMPA). As with any food allergy, the surest way to manage CMPA is to avoid cow milk and any foods that contain dairy proteins.

(She may need to supplement her diet with some nutrients...
Cow Milk Allergy Causes
03/28/2022
...Why some infants develop a milk allergy is unknown. An allergy is an abnormal response by the body’s immune system in response to one or several food allergens. Symptoms of cow milk allergy are caused by exposure to cow milk proteins. These signal the body to produce immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies against the protein. When a person is allergic, any time the body “sees” the protein, the antibodies recognize it and release the chemicals...
Eosinophilic Esophagitis | What is EoE?
09/25/2017
...Eosinophilic esophagitis, or EoE, is a condition typically caused by food allergies. Allergens like the proteins in cow milk and wheat may be the culprits. EoE is sometimes called an eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorder (EGID). Eosinophilic esophagitis causes inflammation of the esophagus, the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach. This is due to a build-up of eosinophils, a type of white blood cell. Symptoms can be painful and may include trouble swallowing, nausea,...

...As many of you may know, food allergy symptoms can appear in a variety of ways. One of the most concerning symptoms of a food allergy is when a person goes into anaphylactic shock. In fact, food allergies are believed to be the leading cause of anaphylaxis outside the hospital setting. The CDC reported that food allergies result in over 300,000 ambulatory-care visits a year among children. Because this is the most life...

...the digestive tract. When someone says they have a food allergy, most people think of symptoms like anaphylaxis or hives or an itchy, swollen mouth. Those don’t happen with FPIES. Food protein-induced enterocolitis sydrome is a non-IgE-mediated immune reaction in the gastrointestinal (GI) system to one or more specific foods. This means that the IgE antibodies associated with many food allergies are not involved in an FPIES reaction. That makes FPIES hard to test for....
