ODD is on a TED. Has been since the beginning of December. Her foods are rice, quinoa, ground turkey, sweet potatoes, and pears. She also gets kosher salt, black pepper, and olive, canola, and safflower oil. On just those foods, she was doing great ~ sleeping better, solid poop (which we've never had in her, like, ever), no rashes, and pretty significant weight gain. So we did a few trials (eggs, apples, grapes, and peanut butter failed, carrots and ground beef passed). Grapes took a really really long time to clear (like, more than a week after only eating them for 2 days). Then I trialed eggs a second time because the first trial we weren't sure what caused the reaction. She ate two scrambled eggs over 3 weeks ago and still hasn't gone back to baseline. Her poop is still mushy at best
We even removed pears, thinking that maybe she was getting too much fruit, and that didn't help. So now I'm not sure what to do. It seems like one of the foods she was fine with is now causing a reaction. Rice seems the most likely culprit as it is what she eats the most of, but I'm not even sure how to test it. She just can't lose another food at this point. She's been so good about the diet of 7 foods (now 6) for 2&1/2 months, and I can't see eliminating something else because I'm worried about nutrition
I'm starting to wonder if we should pursue some more invasive testing to find out if there is an underlying cause for her stool issues. She tested negative for celiac (though her IgG was elevated for gliaden), her iron is fine so she's not having issues with malabsorption, we've done IgE testing and it all came back negative, and we've done lots of stool testing to rule out parasites/bacteria. DH and I are thinking that, if there is not damage being caused by the chronic loose stool, we can be a little more aggressive with reintroduction of foods. There are some we won't give for sure, but right now we can't even trial anything at all because we can't get to baseline
Any thoughts? Would an endoscopy even show anything? Am I crazy for even considering it?
