ok...so now i am checking into oxalates too. maybe LOD will magically fix everything? will this journey ever end?? anyone have any good links for oxalates?
yeah i think it def involves the chemicals. she is on mostly low salic/amines etc but because i am trying so hard to gluten her up for testing, i know some hidden stuff is slipping through in the packaged stuff. today it changed! it happened earlier. at 2 o'clock. which is good because she hadnt eaten that many things yet. just bread, sun chips, and pretzels (i know...total crap...but they really need the gluten ) the bread i bought has a poss of having soy in...
i second failsafe. lots of ppl have success on feingold but i have read that that is prob because they are elim enough of the chemicals to see a real dif. but it is best to elim all types of chemicals first and then challenge each one individually to learn which lo may be sensitive to. i have read up lots on the metabolic pathways that cause chem sensitivities and it seems to come down to sulfation. either not enough sulfur or an inability to convert sulfur to the...

I'll come in and see her sitting there with BRIGHT red and hot cheeks, chin, & ears (and btw...a long time ago it used to only be cheeks and ears but has come to involve the chin too). and her eyes are reddish and shiny like she has been crying (even though she hasnt been). The eyes being watery makes me think this is def a histamine response....

Have you thought at all...
