My one year old daughter may have an intolerance to corn. Ever heard of an intolerance so young? I’m worried that the doctor may write it off since she is only one. So do I start at the pediatrician first-maybe be referred to allergist? Will an allergist diagnose intolerances?
- Rhonda Answers: Unfortunately, yes, I’ve heard of allergies and intolerances that can occur with children at young ages. However, before you diagnose this as an intolerance, I think you should do two things. 1) Make a food diary and record everything including every ingredient that your daughter eats in a day and record her reaction after she eats. 2) schedule time to visit your Pediatrician or Naturopathic Doctor and share the diary with the doctor so that they can properly diagnose. Before you go to an allergist, I recommend you seeing a Natural doctor first because typically allergists don’t do delayed allergy testing.
