I feel kinda dumb right now… Long story short… its not the milk that’s the problem, or at least not a main one (she could still be lactose intolerant, we’ll have to watch and see).
I mentioned what happened yesterday to Baba and he brought up that she’d been eating some dairy for days w/ no problems. I’d thought about it myself but just figured maybe it just caught up with her. I went to bed thinking about what she ate that day and then it hit me. She had a peanut butter sandwich..
Every time she’s had that problem she’s been eating them.
Not only that… but the time she was “dairy free” she stopped eating them too. Not something I intended to do together, but she just started refusing to eat them. She has twice since then… the first time was at Grans and she did get sick after, but we put it to dairy still getting out of her system. And yesterday…
I feel bad that I didn’t piece that together. When I think about peanuts being a problem though, I think about the horrible allergies… not just an intolerance. She doesn’t get hives or anything awful like that so I just didn’t think… Confused looking it up though because while diarrhea can be a sign of allergy or intolerance, its not one mentioned for peanuts. Apparently intolerance to them usually is heartburn.. Strange. Maybe something else in the PB? Baba’s thought there. I don’t know…
Edit: No its listed as one of the symptoms for both peanut intolerance or allergy. Lovely. But at least we’re not loosing our minds here (or not completely lol).
So yeah… may not be dairy at all. It made sense that it would be… and I’m still gonna keep an eye on her as we’re reintroducing it.
Oh and the comment about getting her tested… really does seem like a good idea. Something we’ll prob discuss at her next checkup.
Editing again: Just talked to Grandpa & found out Tia Banay is allergic to PB… not the peanuts themselves (she can eat the natural PB, just not the regular kind) but something else in it. Something else to look at, get her good again and try the natural kind maybe. Rule out that its not the same thing as her aunt.
