After visits to a pediatric GI and stool testing, we know that DS has an allergy. I have been off of dairy for a month and soy for two weeks now, but his stools are not improving. So with the suggestion of an LC, I have decided to try an elimination diet before starting elecare, which the GI has written a script for. When I had initially researched what this would entail, I was under the impressions I could eat ONLY chicken and turkey, potatoes, rice, squash and pears. As I research further, I am finding guidelines (from the UW Integrative Medicine Dept of Family Medicine, specifically) that allow a much wider range of initial foods, including the foods already listed plus some nuts, all fruits and vegetables, and some oils.
So, has anyone here done an elimination diet before? If so, would you please share what you ate and what your results were? Thanks so much.
