If a Sibling has FPIES, will it be to the same foods?

  • A family asks:

     

    "My 2 year old has fpies to rice and oats. It is not an official diagnosis since her pedi hadn't even heard of it until I brought some info to her but she has text book fpies reactions to rice and oats. We never sought an official diagnosis because it is easy enough to avoid those foods and have a balanced diet.

    I also have a 5 month old. I have read that generally siblings will also have fpies, but I'm wondering if it is to the same foods. We are skipping cereal this time since that's what the oldest was/is allergic to, but is it likely that the little one could react to those as well? So far we have fed her avocado and sweet potatoes with no reaction. 

    I just hate not knowing."
