Stool testing results

The GI doctor called this evening with Izzy's stool sample results. His stools are highly acidic, and contain 3+ mg of sugars. According to the doctor, this indicates that Izzy definitely has an intolerance to something I am eating - most likely dairy.

She is using the first stool sample result as a baseline. I am supposed to completely eliminate soy, dairy, citrus, and peanuts (which I've been doing for the past two weeks), and then take in a new stool sample to have it analyzed.

Although I expected her to call with bad news, I was hopeful that his stools would come back normal.

How do you enjoy any dairy goodness if you can't even have soy?? I thought that it was the miricle product for those allergic to regular dairy?? Am I that nieve?

Anywho, I hope he is feeling better soon!! You both deserve the much needed sleep!
