I have a question for you regarding maple syrup and SCD/MD. I know it's not legal on both diets but my son, who is almost 13, can't tolerate honey – even tiny bit coses relapse but he is fine with maple syrup.
A little introduction. My son has been Dx with CD three years ago. I didn't want him to use steroids and we went exclusive enteral nutrition way. He gotten well, started to grow again but... That's it. We are stock now. We have tried very slow reintroduction of foods on several occasions (one food for 10-14 days) but sooner or later failed. Unfortunately I n my son's case it wasn't enough to take bothersome food away from his diet – he had to go back on the formula exclusively. My son could tolerate rice and maple syrup (his SED rate once was 0). We have tried home maid (the SCD way) goat yogurt and curd while visiting family in Eastern Europe but he had pains from those.
Now he developed continues upper stomach pains and stopped drinking his formula since Sunday afternoon. All he has now – peppermint tea. So, literally he is starving. I'm not pushing the formula because I always wanted him to try ether of this two diets but was afraid he'll loose too much weight w/o the formula which ingredients are far from being legal for both diets. And now I'd like to use the opportunity and go ahead with one of these diets but don't really know were to begin (even though I have both books) since looks like my son can't tolerate key foods of those diets.
I appreciate any input.
