DD (7) has a dairy intolerance but over last 3 months has been gradually complaining more and more of sore tummy and diarrhoea, to that point that it is daily, but definitely not dairy related. GP has referred her to peads clinic but appointment is 8 weeks away. Says there is nothing to do in the meantime. I kept a food diary and soya and wheat / oats make up a lot of her diet. I have removed soya and wheat from her diet and the diarrhoea has stopped but not the tummy pains. I know that I need to put the wheat back into her diet 6 weeks before appointment for blood tests. Any thoughts? Getting desperate as off school 3 days this week with stomach pain! Any suggestions gratefully received - thanks

Much sympathy!

Have you tried OTC antacids?
