Just wondering if anyone has had breath tests done on their LOs and if they found it useful? We have non IgE allergies (multiple) and our dietician thinks DD gets a secondary carbohydrate intolerance through gut inflammation. So I don’t really see the point of testing as it will only reflect the current state of her gut, right? ie she comes up fructose intolerant but only because she’s had a recent allergic reaction to something else... so she may not be fructose intolerant at baseline? Ditto lactose.
And even if she is intolerant I would still need to titrate to see how much she can manage- which we do anyway.
Would be keen for people’s thiughts/experiences!

No one?
I was booked but am cancelling coz I can’t face putting her through the fasting (we still comfort feed 1-2 times a night). Lame I know but can’t see the benefit at the point. Would also need to stop probiotics for 2 weeks and not game to try!

Look, I think there are some things worth fasting for and there are things where the outcome is not worth fasting for. As a parent you know where this sits on that line. (I may be scarred from a child who hated fasting though!)
From your description it doesn't sound accurate enough to be of any practical use compared to the process of fasting etc.

Thanks MooGuru. Have cancelled appts. Relief. Nice to bounce it off someone else, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. Best wishes.
