We are tackling Morgan's food allergies. We have a list for him, but, excluding dairy,have done nothing with it. His eczema, which he had suffered with since he was an infant, disappeared as soon as we returned to the states...don't know why. His remaining symptoms (excessive gas, diaper issues and a permanent runny nose) are not improving on their own and will start causing him social issues as he gets older. His brothers already don't appreciate his sliminess or aroma.

His main allergies/sensitivities are complicated. Dairy, gluten and fructose. Dairy...he was already off of. Gluten...last week we took him off the last little bit of gluten he was eating (oatmeal)...that took care of the intestinal problems. the one I've been afraid of. It's in nearly everything! I've done quite a bit of research on it this past week and tomorrow we start a trial diet with him to see if that is what is actually causing his sinus problems.

The good thing about the fructose sensitivity in young children is that it usually improves with age. So there is hope of him outgrowing it. Exciting times in my world of food allergies. Bleh
