Time to get serious about changing our diet.

He's still positive for immediate reaction on Eggs & dairy.

He's positive for delayed reaction on:

Wheat-severe
Gluten-severe
Tuna-severe
Rice-moderate (What? ACK!)
Mustard-moderate

The following are low and do not require full elimination, but they do recommend putting them on rotation so that he doesn't eat the same food within 4 days. So, for example, if I gave him carrots on Monday, he couldn't eat them again until Friday. This is to ensure that the food doesn't overwhelm his immune system and cause the allergy to worsen.

Asparagus
Brocolli
Carrot
Eggplant
Lemon
Lettuce
Milk (still have to eliminate due to it being an IgE (immediate) allergen as well)
Peas (suspected this as a baby)
Rye
Tomato
Soy
Watermelon
Yogurt

I was pretty much in complete shock today when I read the results. He's always been an allergy kid, but omg, this is quite a list!

Yes. I was really really REALLY hoping gluten wouldn't be a big trigger for him, but it's crazy high, although wheat is the highest. He loves bread products. Ironically, the day before we got the test results, I had gone down to the health food store and bought about $100 worth (that's 1/4 of our monthly grocery budget!) of gluten-free products, all made with rice, which we're apparently supposed to eliminate from our diet as well! *sigh* I'm rebelling, I'm not eliminating rice yet.

He already can't have mayo due to it containing eggs and now we're supposed to eliminate mustard too? And put Ketchup on a rotation since it's made of tomatoes. Oh, but wait, he can't have bread anyway, so why am I sweating that? *nervous laughter bordering on slight insanity*

And broccoli is his fave veggie!

Now we're waiting on the heavy metals test to see if we need to do chelation...

Oy!! If you're up for making your own bread, maybe you could mix rice flour with bean flour? You don't even have to buy the ready-made flour, just toss raw rice or dried beans (chick peas actually work quite well) in the blender until it becomes a powder.

We did a heavy metal screen recently, too... not good! Medium levels of mercury and elevated zinc (which indicates a deficiency of minerals).

Oh, I have a recipe for "bean"naise, which is a mayo substitite. I actually like it better, but then again I'm not a mayo fan. You could probably leave out the lemon juice and use lime.

1-15oz can white beans, drained
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon white vinegar
teaspoon salt
teaspoon dry mustard
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup canola oil

Place all ingredients, except oils, in blender and process until very creamy. With the blender running, slowly drizzle in the oils. Continue processing until well-blended. Chill thoroughly before use. Keeps in refrigerator for 7 days and may be frozen.

Thanks, Cori!

I actually found a recipe for gluten-free, rice-free, egg-free bread that sounds like it might work. It uses sorghum flour, millet, cornmeal & potato starch.

I just finished making my first batch of egg-free, gluten-free banana muffins. We'll see how those go over...

Wow! I would be afraid to test Gus, he has such a limited diet, what if he couldn't even have THAT anymore! I hope Zack can give up his allergens without too much trouble and likes the substitutes!
