    Answers!

    Okay, so I am shocked and overwhelmed and want to share what we have learned. We did an IGg Antibody Blood Test that looks at how you react to nearly 100 foods. My daughter reacts (badly) to all dairy (even goat), corn, cranberries, peanuts, and soy. We were already Gluten Free (sister has Celiac). We started reading labels like crazy and changed her diet quickly. In two weeks, she has had ketones only three times (and none of them as large as they were almost daily when I originally posted). Her gut has apparently been under major stress from food! I wish we had known sooner, and avoided all the months and years of tummy pain and diarrhea. I have to say that we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our ND! We have been through it all with the Pediatric GI Specialist, Nutritionist, and our Endo has tried to help us too -- but all the while it was food. We are still making adaptions to our diet and learning more each day, but my daughter is feeling better and it's amazing!

    So glad you found answers! I've heard that food sensitivities are a bigger problem than commonly known. It's amazing the damage they do. Hope your daughter continues to improve so she can feel her best.

    It's interesting that the GI specialist did not pursue the testing. Btw, what is an ND?
