FPIES, a serious food allergy. All doctors need training on this allergy

This petition had 534 supporters


FPIES (Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome) is a rare but very real food allergy its a non IgE reaction which means its not an anaphylactic reaction. The reaction occur in the gastro track, causing vomit to shock, worst case death. Chronic reaction from diarrhea to failure to thrive and more. It is very important ALL doctors are trained in FPIES, lack of training causes misdiagnosed babies and children as the stomach bug. Many children go to the ER with acute reactions and no answers. My goal here is to make it a requirement for all doctors to be trained on FPIES.
