Re: In-Clinic Food Challenge Experience?

EatmonFamily ·
We had an amazing experience at Duke Children's Hospital. We had 1 to 1 nurse care, a nutritionist, and an FPIES specialist. The hardest part of the challenge was accepting we had to have an IV put in for precautionary measures. Luckily, the numbing cream they used prevented him from feeling the IV so there were no tears (just looks of worry). We knew going in that sweet potatoes, squash, and oats were trigger foods for our son. We decided to test for poultry instead of veggies. We brought a...

Hello, we just brought our 1yo daughter to the hospital last Monday for a cow's milk challenge. I was very afraid of this test, but she passed it, so it is a wonderful ending and surpassing this fear and anxiety was worth it! It was an outpatient way, we went in the morning, (no eating since midnight, that was hard!),worst part was the iv line (very hard to find), but with numbing cream it was a little bit better. They made blood tests before and 6h after drinking the milk, to see if there...

Siblings with FPIES

We have two children who had FPIES reactions to the same food (oats). We really restricted the diet of our second the brace/screen for FPIES so I think he could have reacted to lots more but we didn’t introduce as much. We are now expecting our third baby in May and I’m worried about starting this food journey all over again. Do other families with multiple children have FPIES with each child? were their triggers the same?

I have three and only one is FPIES stricken. When you say "Oats" do you mean straight Oats or pre-concocted oatmeal products? I use to firmly believe mine had a milk / lactose intolerance and have inevitably , after rediculous home testing, found that the real culprit with "milk" is either the additives or packaging. I also ran into a reaction with something containing none of her know triggers and was only left to wonder if it was the package coating or "mixed tocopherols". I thought she...

Hi there! Thanks for your response! Ours both reacted to baby oatmeal after multiple exposures when mixed with breast milk. We cut them completely from my diet (breastfeeding) and noticed a huge different in their overall gas/discomfort and stooling. Our eldest outgrew it by 20 months (accidents exposure - a yogurt product we had aways purchased added oat cereal to it, didn’t change the label much (a tiny picture of a few oats in the corner) and I didn’t notice until she had eaten all of it.
