I learned another word:eosinophil
had to google it.
In answer to how long it took me to see improvement on removing dairy/soy/gluten
Gluten=stopped bleeding in 2-3 days and never had it again (after almost 10 years)
Dairy/Soy/Grains (basic SCD)=much longer to get to remission, I will say 3 months although I could tell it was working gradually but very slowly. Because it was working so slowly I started probiotics which gave a good positive kick.
your daughter's flare on SCD: I failed at SCD and other diets in previous years and I believe SCD in particular failed because I was also sensitive to fructose and the homemade yogurt. I was a tough case, tougher than even foods SCD allowed.
Once I started SCD again in Jan 2010 I started gluten-free first then added the SCD diet but removed all dairy and all fruit and juices. That was the key to my success.
Now at almost 5 months I can eat cheddar and swiss cheese (small amounts) as well as blueberries. Over the hump so to speak. Too chicken to try the yogurt again but take VSL#3 instead.
I am very very healthy physically and now in UC-remission. I can even have some chocolate
My reading says that urgency is one of the last symptoms to go and that was true for me. It was over 2 months before that let up. Now I am working on being more regular as C is my "normal" condition (and was before UC).
I find that whole nuts are more of a problem than nut flour for me (I even soak and dry them).
One of my favorites is making muffins using half nut flour and half shredded veggies like carrot or squash. Adding blueberries is great!
I know you will find a way. Your daughter is lucky to have a mother like you. Best wishes.
In remission April 2010 after 10 years of suffering and no remission ever
