Our little Veya has FPIES (food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome.
FPIES is a non-IgE mediated immune reaction in the gastrointestinal system to one or more specific foods, commonly characterized by profuse vomiting and diarrhea. FPIES is presumed to be cell mediated. Poor growth may occur with continual ingestion. Upon removing the problem food(s), all FPIES symptoms subside. The most common FPIES triggers are cow's milk (dairy) and soy. However, any food can cause an FPIES reaction, even those not commonly considered allergens, such as rice, oat and barley.Veya's Reaction so far is to all foods. And if a food is ingested she starts with vomiting and diarrhea. Then comes fever, heart rate goes way up to 190's and then she has trouble breathing. Visit www.iaffpe.org for more info
