Customer Question

My 8 year old son is tired most of the time and has frequent stomach aches, large loose floating stools and occasional vomiting. He has also had 2 episodes of rectal bleeding that his gastro. Dr. says is most likely linked to food allergy. He is allergic to eggs and dariy. He has eosinophilic esophagitis and is currently in a research study but I am worried something more is going on. He is very irritable and has extreme mood swings, he has also recently started having a hard time concentrating he calls it brain pausing. He has had one fainting episode,and we recently noticed the bottom of his feet are orange, no clue if related. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What sort of labs have been done on him? Liver function tests?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

They have done a CBC and sed rate, creatinine was slightly low and Bun/Creat slightly elevated and Mono% slightly elevated. The Dr. said all was ok. He has also had a skin prick test for diabetes, it was negative. Blood testing for allergy showed many food and environmental allergies. Thank you for your time.

a good anti-allergic medicine prescription should be obtained. also arrange for de-sensitizing therapy from allergy specialist.
any way, I'm sure he is in good hands and will surely get better through efforts of treating team.
