My 4 year old son has recently had allergy testing done (bloodwork) and I got the results the other day. He was tested for everything, food and airborne stuff like pollen and cats, etc. I forget the name of the test but it is the one where anything over a score of 65 is considered an intolerance or allergy. He scored from 50-71 (can't remember the exact numbers right now) on dairy, wheat, rye, oat, egg whites, peanuts. the doctor told me I didnt have to change his eating habits based on this information but that he might become more allergic to this stuff later on. I asked if a food diary would be helpful and the dr. told me it is almost impossible to keep one now a days b/c everything is processed and has so many ingredients. Well, I told him that isnt a problem b/c my kids don't eat processed food, they eat mostly whole foods and knowing ingredients is easy for me, he acted surprised and said wow that's great! so I am keeping a food diary, just started.
I am just wondering if anyone has been in this situation and what they did? I am thinking my best bet right now is sticking with the food diary and seeing what I find with that as far as behavior trends, GI issues, hives etc. and what he is eating. Any thoughts?
