Mamafish9 - can you suggest any digestive enzymes for my DD - for 14 mo old?

There have been several of us trying pancreatic enzymes with our kids with a lot of success lately, and pine nut oil. Pancreatic enzymes don't taste great, so they're tougher with little ones - can you get a good source of high quality pine nut oil?

Okay. I just didn't want to jump to conclusions. It is true that food intolerances vary by geography. I've heard that Asian people are more likely to be allergic/intolerant to rice and things that are eaten more frequently there. But as I've said, I know two people of Indian descent who have food intolerances, one of which is gluten. I'm just saying it's not impossible, that's all. Have you tried food journaling to see if there's any pattern?

For us, my DS had the Genova stool test, and it showed which enzymes he needed, and what good bacteria he was missing, etc. We used the PayAssured program so it was "only" $150. His/our osteopath ordered it. And the enzymes helped immensely.

And for my DD2, after we removed all the foods she was intolerant to, she went from 50th percentile for both height/weight (my kids are generally on the upper end of the scale) to 75th percentile for both, but it took some time.

What enzymes were they? And what was the age of your DS when he took them?

The enzymes that he takes are specific for what he needs based on his stool testing. I don't think enzymes are necessarily a one size fits all. My DS started taking them when he was 9yo. My DD2 has been taking pretty big capsules (like Mg glycinate) since she was 3yo.
