Has your child experienced severe episodes of vomiting after eating infant cereal and/or first foods; or drinking formula? Do you question whether or not a specific food or foods may be contributing to your infant’s worsening symptoms of periodic vomiting, chronic diarrhea, reflux and/or failure to thrive? These symptoms may indicate a need to speak with your child’s doctor about an FPIES evaluation.

Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (F-PIES) is a type of food allergy affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Classic symptoms of FPIES include profuse vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration. These symptoms can lead to severe lethargy, change in body temperature and blood pressure.

Nonetheless, FPIES can present with severe symptoms following ingestion of a food trigger. Learn More….
