I'm wanting to get my family Doc on board with the success we have seen with our son.
I recently switched our children to her after seeing her myself for years. the peds where always brushing off my son's symptoms and not investigating anything.
Our family doc did do some tests at first but no follow up and never really had any answers so again brushed aside. She has woken up to Sensory issues though and has sent other patients to our OT for these issues (but we now know his sensory issues have been exacerbated- if not a result of- FGA!).
Is there 'diagnoses' per say?
We tend to just say he has a metabolic disorder, but this is just what we've used to put an emphasis on the problem, I know this is not the problem per say, but it looks like one when he has had a reaction.

Ok, seems no advice here, but I will say that I just had a brief meeting with an psychologist who is also a medical MD in practice (whole body care). I talked a little about the food additives and how it has affected our son- he was like, "Duh" I see these kids all day long! And so happy to support us on this. He also wanted to follow up and see if there are any other foods that might be still having an impact on his health,
our son is needing some coping skills, he had a lot of trauma while in Public school 2 years ago (un because his brain as being poisoned unbeknownst to me at the time!) and now he needs to find some way to over come it.
Great to find an MD that can look at the whole body. I will still be on high alert - not to many supplements and what are the inactive ingredients.

That's great that you found a doctor that acknowledges a problem with additives and is familiar with with symptoms. Hopefully, he will have some treatment that will help your son cope. Your doctor isn't considered a Psychiatrist? That's the only MD that I've ever heard of that does counselling. Are you living in the US? I'll be interested in what your doctor has to say. If your son is very sensitive, you will probably also need to be aware of other products too...not just those that he ingests, but those that he touches or smells. How old is your son?

This is a Psychiatrist who has also practiced body medicine.
So far our son is really reactive to foods, but I will look into other products and see if he is just always on the verge of reaction when he ingests food.
He turns 10 next week, I have another son who has not changed in any way from removing additives from his diet, so there is a physiological/genetic component to the FGA reaction . .I'm not ready to spend the $ to find out (but it might be down the road).
