Infant with Multiple Protein Intolerance

Hi. My daughter was just diagnosed with multiple protein intolerance. The Dr. told me to stop breastfeeding her and to began giving her a special formula (Amare).
I was wondering if aethusa may help her digest the proteins.

Her symptoms are severe reflux, painful gas and an inability to move her bowels without suppositories or other stimulation.

Any thoughts?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
How old is youre daughter?

How did you discover that something was wrong, what happened?

Is there anything you can do to alleviate these problems, at least for a short while?

Does she have some kind of rash?

Does she have some kind of rash?

Did you take any medication during pregnancy?

Or something dramatic happened during pregnancy?

Thanks for responding.
My daughter is 5 months old and fully breastfed. She was diagnosed with GORD at 6 weeks when she was extremely irritable, vomitting and could not sleep for very long without waking up screaming. She was given zantac and later prescribed losec. We were doing ok until September when she could not keep any food on her stomach for about two weeks and had to be hospitalised and put on a drip for 3 days (never discovered the reason). The week after the hospital stay, her reflux flared up so we were advised to increase the losec to 15 mg. We didn't want to increase the losec so we tried gaviscon first. This helped but made her constipated, so we then increased the losec. The reflux calmed down but her bowels went dysfunctional. Tests have indicated that there is no obstruction or abnormality. She is in great distress most days trying to push. Only gas seems to come out. For two days a few weeks ago, should could not even pass gas. We have to give her suppositories every day. She can sleep at best 2.5 hours straight before waking in pain.

The Dr. came to a conclusion that the reflux and now the intestinal issues are likely caused by a multiple protein intolerance. He said that the irritation to her large intestine is likely must it stop functioning properly. Also, she has a lot of mucous in her stool which also points to this problem. However, I have been off of dairy since July and several other protein sources for the last 2 months. We have not seen improvement.

She does not have a rash, I have to take cetirizine almost every day and I took it during pregnancy.
I had a membrane rupture at 36 weeks and had an emergency caesarean due to her being in a transverse position.

Thanks for your help

When she gets these attacks, stomach pain, what does she do? Pulls her legs up to the stomach? Being completely stiff? Changes color in her face? Red, blue, pale?

Is there a particular color of stool, or smell? For example, the smell of sulfur / egg? Or another smell?

She likes to be held, or push you away?

The pain, it comes just after she has eaten?

Is there anything that helps, eg heat, hot water, cooling water, other things that you have observed?

She sweats at night, in the case where?
Kicking off her blanket when she sleeps?

Other such details that you have observed?

She tenses up her body as if she is trying to move her bowels and makes loud straining noises while crying. She turns red while straining. This happens a couple of hours after she eats.

The stool is yellow and full of mucous. The smell is foul sulfur/egg/fish. It's pretty watery. She seems to have incomplete bowel movements after the suppositories for the last few days. She is still straining with nothing coming out soon after.

She likes to be held. She is a very happy baby when she is not in pain.

The only thing that calms her down is breastfeeding again. She is then able to push while eating and relieve herself of some gas.

I don't notice any night sweating, but she kicks the blankets off every night. This may be from tossing and turning trying to expel gas.

We have taken her off of the losec for a week and went back to probiotics and zantac. The reflux/vomiting improved, but the bowel function is the same. Since the vomiting/ reflux improved, yesterday we decided to take her off of the zantac and just use a product with Magnesium Carbonate and Ammonium Bicarbonate. The straining seems to be at its worst today.

We tried chamomile in August she had a bit of a reaction to it. Constant belching and increased vomiting.

Ok, thank you.
I think you should give her a medicine called Sulphur, 30C.
Give her a dose of this medicine.
Take the pills, 3-4, and pour them into a glass of water, about 1 desiliter water. Let them stand until they are dissolved. Take a teaspoon and stir a few times. Take a teaspoon of this resolution and give to the child. Give medication half an hour before or after food. Preferably in the morning.
Remember, start with just this single dose. Put a lid or plastfoile over the glass and put it in the fridge.

Wait until the next day and observe what happens, then take contact with me again.
If you have any questions, just ask.

Sincerely, Parakletos
