My dd has exhibited tics from Jan this year. I've done the OAT test, the Great Labs Allergy Test. We've taken her off dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, chicken, prawns and anything that has salicylates in them. Now, I have a 7 year old who is only 41 pounds. She's been on this diet since February this year and I can tell that she's sick and tired of it. I am too and I'm wondering if it'll be safe to re-introduce the offending foods. Problem is every time I psyche myself into starting, she'll have a new tic/her tic will become more pronounced. Those who have reintroduced the offending foods, how did you get it to be ok? Was it easy to accomplish? Can it be done?I'm dying to have a normal life for her. Right now, my family never eats out.
Even though we have modified her diet, her tics are still there.They have lessened somewhat though.
I look at my dd and I see a really bony child. How can I fatten her up? She is taking amaranth/quinoa spaghetti, millet, potatoes, rice, macaroni - all home-cooked. No junk food at all. No cakes, hardly any sugar, Nuttelex Lite twice a week and some fruits. She takes beef, lamb and fish for meats. Vegetables - cabbage, celery, beans, lettuce, green leafy vegetables, bean sprouts, onions. She is also taking a whole host of supplements - vitamin c, super nu thera, magnesium, calcium, taurine, glutamine, enzymes and probiotics.
Please help. I really can't bear to see my kid suffering. I really want to fatten her up. And of course, I'd like her tics to disappear just like how they sneaked up on us one rainy day.
