Welcome to my blog!

This blog is a journal of our struggles with food allergies and eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs). ("DD" stands for "dear daughter", so whenever you see it in the blog it is referring to my daughter and our personal experience.) My hope is for this blog to be a source of information and support to others who might be trying to investigate, diagnose, treat, or live with, food allergies and EGIDs. Feel free to leave comments with suggestions or requests of what you would like to see on this blog. This is a work in progress. :)

More symptoms

I'm listening to a seminar right now by Liz Lipski (author of Digestive Wellness) and she mentions some common food allergy/intolerance symptoms. (Of course, many of these are more obvious in adults than babies, but sometimes when figuring out your baby's allergies you find some of your own!)
  • low energy/fatigue
  • "brain fog"
  • headaches
  • sleep issues
  • sore throat
  • frequent throat clearing
  • frequent caker sores
  • nasal congestion
  • blurry vision
  • excess mucous
  • irregular hearbeat
  • irritable bowel symptoms
