I am searching for a milk substitute for a child allergic to milk protein, soy, and eggs?

I am searching for a milk substitute for a child allergic to milk protein, soy, and eggs?

Age ?????: Infants can receive a relatively expensive but reliable product such as alumentum formula which is made from broken up proteins to avoid allergic reacctions. After weaning, a child can avoid milk altogether and get the protein/fat/fluid & calcium they need from alternative foods. Calcium for bone growth can be found in Tums (calcium carbonate) or calcium tablets & other needs come from whatever the kid will eat. ...Read more

I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

Breast milk: Many pediatricians and pediatiric clinics assign the diagnosis of "foor allergies" as a cause of "colic" or poor feeding by an infant. It is possible that no "true allergies" have occurred, and if your infant is thriving (putting on predicted weight) it is unlikely that your breast milk is creating a problem. Ask a pediatric dermatologist for advice if your infant is not growing appropriately. ...Read more

I tested positive for chicken and peanut allergy but I've been eating lots of chicken and peanut butter my whole life with no reactions. How so?

I tested positive for chicken and peanut allergy but I've been eating lots of chicken and peanut butter my whole life with no reactions.  How so?

False positives: If you tolerate these, keep eating them. I think most competent allergists will tell you the same thing. The world's got too many people restricting their diets both from "pop" advice and from taking allergy test results too seriously -- this phenomenon is being written up because it's making people sick. ...Read more

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Unlikely: If your 2 year old had a true IgE-mediated allergic reactions to almond this allergy would manifest with both almonds and with almond milk. Given your concern and consistency of reaction I would have your child avoid almonds until seen by an Allergist for skin or blood testing to confirm/deny allergy. An Allergist will be able to get to the bottom of this. ...Read more

My 20 months old has a speech delay. I found some info on-line saying that better for him to drink gluten free milk .Gave him almond milk for the day ?

Time for consultatn: A speech delay in a kid should be evaluated by his doc and possibly a hearing specialist and speech pathologist. Those with chronic ear infections often show some delay. If you wish, your doc could order a blood test to seek evidence of a gluten sensitivity, if negative you can skip reading labels and treating a problem that does not exist. ...Read more

Is this a healthy breakfast whole grain whole wheat cereal with vitamin d or almond milk with two eggs and a banana other days i eat a pbnj w/ banana?

HiCarb ↑esObesity DM: You're describing a breakfast which is high in carbohydrates; the grains are no longer hole, they have been ground into flour which dramatically increases their glycemic index ; bananas are a high glycemic index fruit. The eggs are fine yet everything you describe is low fiber content, a highly relevant issue given your stated history. All foods are marketed as healthy because this increases sales. ...Read more

For infants, toddlers and kids, should formula milk or any milk be limited? normal food which v eat is preferable? our doc told to limit milk? reason?

For infants, toddlers and kids, should formula milk or any milk be limited? normal food which v eat is preferable? our doc told to limit milk? reason?

Confusing question: Bovine milk in high quantities can cause small amounts of intestinal bleeding. Kids who develop an unhealthy pattern of excessive bovine milk consumption can become anemic enough to need a blood transfusion.Most recommend no > 16-20 oz/day, which seems well tolerated. Any food/formula consumed in excess of need can cause problems. You can work out the age related specifics with your doc. ...Read more

She rejects all types of pedialyte, ors etc.  Can I mix pedialyte with water and add formula milk to develop milk like taste and give her?what 2 do?

Yes you can: But why are giving your child pedialyte? Is she dehydrated? Is she vomiting and can't keep anything down? If this is the case and if severely dehydrated, she needs fluid replacement, preferably IV. But if she drinks milk and keeps it down, no need to force something she doesn't want, most important is replacement, milk is safe. If in doubt see her doctor again, best wishes ...Read more

Can gas be a sign of food poisoning in pregnancy? Ate pancakes breakfast, avocado and chicken at lunch, and plantains with stew for dinner clif bar

Can gas be a sign of food poisoning in pregnancy? Ate pancakes breakfast, avocado and chicken at lunch, and plantains with stew for dinner clif bar

Sure, but...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause (like pregnancy), infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
