DS#1 has DSI (sensory integration disorder) and just tested PA, TNA, SA, and a ton of environmental allergies. I asked the dr. about testing him for other legumes since he's PA, eats a ton of beans, and they also might be contributing to his DSI. She said that she tests only for the 8 major food allergens. Do other allergists test for legumes besides peanuts? Actually, I'd love to hear about all FA tests available besides the "Big 8." I need to figure out everything I need to strip from his diet to see if the DSI then goes away.
