Re: Finding an FPIES Doctor

AmandaB ·
Another question I've seen is "do we even need to see a doctor?" My personal answer is yes. Even though I was positive it was FPIES, talking to an allergist who was OUR allergist changed everything. Family members (and my husband) were totally supportive when they were supportive but questioning before. My Mom runs around sweeping like crazy when we visit b/c she's so afraid Matthew will get a hold of something. And she makes sure there is no rice in what we eat (I'm EBF and Matthew reacts...

Is it F-Pies?

Emily ·
My son has had gassiness and bloody diarrhea starting at 2 weeks old, at which time he was exclusively breastfed. Our pediatrician diagnosed him with a milk and soy protein intolerance, and I eliminated both from my diet and continued breastfeeding. 2 weeks later, the amount of blood continued to increase, so while continuing on the elimination diet and pumping to maintain supply, we put him on nutramigen to be sure that the milk and soy truly was the cause of the bleeding. The bloody...

We have a similar story. Our older daughter was FPIES to rice. Our son reacted through breast milk and is so much better on elecare. Recent appt at CHOP and feel very comfortable now saying it is FPIES. We did the diarrhea blood thing for a while. On our 6th or 7th food trial we ended up in the ED. And then again for the next trial. I would always prefer to proceed with caution. I’d rather my kiddos learn foods later than go into shock. Good luck on your journey.

Thank you; did your son have vomiting with the breastmilk or just diarrhea? I am still hanging on hope that it is something milder than FPIES, but the more I read about other people's experiences, the more likely it seems. I suppose there is some relief in knowing for sure what is going on and being able to make a plan based on that.
