More diet issues

      6 Comments on More diet issues

So Emmett was switched to soy milk today. The problem we have now is that he broke out with a rash on his face and had tummy troubles throughout the day. I’m confused as to why soy didn’t show up on the tests. I have no idea what we are supposed to do and we don’t see the doctor till next week. What really sucks is that I just went grocery shopping like a day before hearing about the test results.

Lizze and I have been trying to figure out how to shop for food now. Milk and egg are in almost everything. I am completely overwhelmed with everything and have no idea how to cope with this stress.

Is casein the problem? Because unfortunately, that's in every kind of milk, even soy. You may want to try goat's milk actually. We tried it and only 2 out of 6 people that tried it said the noticed there was any difference between it and normal milk. Even though it too, does have casein, it has much much smaller casein proteins which are not processed at all, meaning that they break down far easier. The big down side to it however, is price. It's even more expensive than the soy. Anyway, yeah, diet is a big problem. You don't realize… Read more »

I didn't know that but you are right. My mom has celiac which requires the gluten free diet as gluten destroys her small intestines. She was saying this diet is going to be tougher then her's. I noticed you posted from an Android phone. There is an apparently on the market the lets you scan the barcodes of items at the store and it tells you whether it contains gluten. It works really well. Check it out if you haven't yet it could be of some help to you. I will look into goats milk and also almond milk. Thanks… Read more »

Almond milk, coconut milk, and rice milk are all gluten-free and casein-free. We use almond milk quite a bit to cook food for our son who is on the gluten-free, casein-free diet.

Your mom would be a great source of information regarding gluten free. A guy I work with is Celiac but not to the extreme his daughter is. Reading Labels will be extremely important. The good news is, if he does have it, it's caught early on. Grandma Bing, Aunt Dorothy and their cousin all had different forms of Celiac. I have a feeling this is something genetic on our side.

He isn't on the gluten free diet as of yet. We will know for sure after the biopsy. Right now we know for sure that he CANNOT have… Read more »
