Review for The FPIES Foundation, Stewartville , MN, USA
My son, Luke, experienced severe acute to shock FPIES reactions to dairy at 3 and 4 months old, and required hospitalization. It was the most terrifying experience we’ve ever had. Even after this, he was not correctly diagnosed. I found his diagnosis by accident when he was about 6 months old. And thank goodness I did, because I found The FPIES Foundation and was able to learn everything I needed to know to keep him safe. We would not have introduced foods in a way that would have been safe if it hadn’t been for the education of this group. We live in the biggest city in Montana, but we don’t have access to highly specialized care. Luke turned 3 years old last month and we completed the dairy ladder with no reaction! It’s unbelievable and wonderful and we are so relieved. I’m so grateful to The FPIES Foundation for helping me learn how to keep him safe and helping me understand this condition. I’ve learned so much more from this organization than from his doctors. We actually taught his doctors in the last 2.5 years!
