As of the last 2 years my healthy, vegan, and athletic 16 year old daughter would start getting sick (flu,cold,fever) every 2 to 3 weeks! I took here to a couple of different doctors, everyone of them would just treat the symptoms. Until a little over a month ago I took her to a MD that specialized in holistic medicine, and as we were telling him what was going on, she broke out in hives; right out of the blue. He called her 'Hyperhistamatic" and ordered several blood panels. All came back normal, except for blood sugar, which was a little on the higher end of the spectrum. She then went and the ALCAT test done, and she came out with severe sensitivities to gluten, dairy, processed foods, and many fruits and vegetables. She is now on a 4 day food rotation eating 5 small meals a day, but every time she eats, she is in severe pain. It has gotten to the point where the pain is so great that she will refuse to eat. She has lost 15lbs in a less than two weeks, even I know that something is wrong. She is off all gluten, dairy, sugars, and is mainly eating vegetable, yet in severe severe pain. Since the last 3 weeks whenever she would eat, she would immediately fall asleep right after and would be in a deep sleep for a good hour or two. We went in again yesterday and they took blood for the IGg, IGe, IGm, and a celiacs panel. We should get the results back by early next week. I'm thinking she has some kind of autoimmune disease. I'm just tired of seeing her wither away. Has anybody had these symptoms or know of any disease that this would fit? Prior to all of this she was only allergic to shellfish, and now to a whole host of allergies? It just doesn't add up for me.
Thanks in Advance
