It took several weeks (at least 2) on Rice Milk before we got NO stinky poops. Also, I've heard of more than one person who tested for giardia that came back negative the first time and positive the 2nd time. So, keep testing I guess. We tested negative and still treated for it. Good luck. Hope you find out soon.Jan
I second what Jan said about Giardia.
My husband's nephew has both egg allergy, intolerance towards wheat in all forms and milk in all forms. He is also sensitive to soy. This didn't show up on the tests the hospital did, but when my brother in law and his wife took their boy to a homeopathic doctor it showed up. They then made the hospital do other, much more serious testing and finally had it show up. The thing was that neither showed up when tested alone, it was the combination that showed (as far as I understood it). The boy didn't grow for a full year, neither in length nor in weight, and his diapers were...messy. I don't know if this is to any help, but your description of Micah made me think of my husband's nephew. (He does look A LOT like Micah too!)
Do you keep a food/symptom journal for Micah? That is very helpful in pin-pointing problem foods. And milk hides in tons of things, so I would make sure it's totally removed for a couple weeks before possibly eliminating another food. My two cents :P Food allergy testing is notoriously unreliable unfortunately. A food journal and trial eliminations give the best answers. There's a yahoo group called Foodlab that has lots of info, and also a Quicktopic group on Milk Soy Protein Intolerance (MSPI). HTH
my husband newphew was sick with Giardia for something like 8mths before it was found. his mum and his Grandma were said the smell should have told the Doctor it was what it was. it was bad. will be praying for answers.
I second what AnneMarie said. I tested negative for lactose intolerance at the GI doctor's office, but after completely cutting out dairy for a week, introducing it back it let me know without a doubt that I was lactose intolerant. Keep a food diary, and realize that it may take a few days for his system to re-adjust. Good luck!!
