My daughter notified me a while ago that Jacob, my four month old grandson appeared to be allergic to lactose - as there was blood and mucus in his stool. My daughter breast-feeds him - so she has cut out all of the milk products from her diet. He, has continued with the blood and mucus in his stool, so they cut all soy from her diet. Now they want to cut out all rice, all wheat, and egg.
My daughter is a genetic hypoglycemic - she has to keep her calorie intake very high and she has to keep her proteins very balanced or she gets very ill and can become comatose. So as they cut out more and more food, it becomes riskier for her until she can find a good substitute.
Lactose allergies run in our family, but none of the other foods do. I believe there is Cilliac disease (auto-immune disease that is set off by wheat) runs in my son's (in law) family.
I ask for prayers for my daughter, Ginger, and for my grandson Jacob.
Edit: Also, the formula they may need to place my grandson on is incredibly expensive.
