Not all allergies are respiratory!

Gastrointestinal tract is also prone to allergy!

-Eosinophilic Esophagitis can cause difficulties swallowing, failure to thrive, slow growth, vomiting, refusal to eat. Pediatric gastroenterologist and allergy specialist are working together to figure out the triggers, medical and dietary treatment. 

- food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) can cause symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and lethargy. These symptoms can be severe and may require hospitalization in some cases. FPIES is typically diagnosed based on a child's clinical history and response to food challenge testing.

- Eczema and blood in the stool is frequently observed in babies with milk protein allergy and responds to milk protein elimination, switching to hypoallergenic amino acid based formula.

- Food sensitivity is a term used to describe a range of adverse reactions to certain foods that are not classified as true food allergies. These reactions can include digestive problems, such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea, as well as other symptoms like headaches, skin rashes, and joint pain.

Unlike food allergies, which involve an immune system reaction to a specific food protein, food sensitivities are thought to be caused by a variety of factors, including enzyme deficiencies, chemical intolerances, and stress on the digestive system.
