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. :)

Flowchart of the types of allergies

I just found this great flowchart at the USBiotek website (they do ELISA testing for food allergies) that shows the different types of allergies and intolerances, as well as things that may mimic intolerances, like- salicylates, preservatives, histamine foods, and others.
