Special Diets of Gluten, Soy, Dairy etc.
My son is 3 1/2 and he has Hypotonia, speech delay, physical delay. However he has come a long way since we put tubes in his ears two months ago. What a change. Anyway the therapies are working and he is in an Early Childhood program in Rolling Meadows, IL. Which is a great program; I cannot tell you how much it has done for my twin boys.
Anyway, my one son has always had temper tantrums and we have been giving him stool softeners for at least a year or more. He has excema on his skin. I just had him tested and he is Soy sensitive. Oh, and did I tell you I have him on SOY MILK? Just shoot me!!! I thought he had a dairy problem. Oh well, now he is on Rice Drink and his skin and tantrums have really tapered off.
I have been doing a lot of reading about children with sensory issues that have a lot of success with these diets. Have you heard of that? He is also, gluten and maybe dairy sensitive. He does not eat meat and I need to get some protein in him. He was getting a lot of protein from the Soy Milk which was about 25 grams a day. That is a big loss to his system.
Do you or anyone out there know of a Gluten, Soy, Dairy free Protein mix that I can put in drinks or food? Also, any protein bars as well.
Thanks for your help; this diet is the hardest work I have ever done.
