8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more

There : There is a possibility that your hair loss could be from your diet (iron deficiency) or it could be from another cause such as a thyroid disorder, hereditary hair loss, over styling, a scalp condition, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or even lupus. Before just assuming it is your diet, you should give your doctor a call. They will be able to examine you and possibly run some simple blood test to rule out non-diet related reasons for hair loss. Many of these are treatable, so having the correct diagnosis is key! good luck! ...Read more

I am  allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut.  Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more

If a baby vomits after each feeding, could it be due to milk protein intolerance? The vomit is milk and not discolored.

If a baby vomits after each feeding, could it be due to milk protein intolerance?  The vomit is milk and not discolored.

Bad vomiting by baby: You didn't mention your infant's age, but if your baby is indeed vomiting repeatedly throughout the day, don't delay ; get help right now. The possibilities for considerable pathology ; consequences are too great to ignore! if your child is instead spitting a portion of every feeding, or you suspect a food intolerance, the urgency is less in seeking help but evaluation is still warranted. ...Read more

Is rice milk soy formula or soy milk better for a toddler with milk intolerance?

More palateable: Either formula will work, however, there is an issue with palatability of the infant to tolerate the formula. Thus, its a matter of trying out the formula.

My grandson is 5months old. He had a milk and soy intOlerance. He was put on neocate. Dr and allergist claim he can't react. He is breaking out in a r?

No rash from Neocate: You mention food intolerance, but it is most probably allergy. You don't describe the rashes. Are they hives, or ongoing eczema (atopic dermatitis, AD)? Neocate is unlikely to cause rashes. Nexium (esomeprazole) definitely may cause rashes. Also, if your grandson has AD, he may break out even if not fed an allergenic food. Have another conversation with his allergist. Also, www.aaaai.org, www.nationaljewish.org. ...Read more

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption?  TSH in Dec. 1.25.  TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more
