My niece is dairy and gluten intolerant and follows very strict diets accordingly and has since she was about 5 (now 10)
She is however very frail. Like to the point that she has fractured her elbow just falling over (i understand kids do strange things sometimes with interesting outcomes)
But is it normal to be so underweight even when following strict diets? I thought by following the diet so strictly she would put on weight or at least look healthy, but she seems like she is looking sicker everytime I see her.
Having never had any intolerances myself or with my kids I am struggling to see how it is healthy and normal for anyone to be this frail.
Can anyone help me understand how these intolerances work and why after years their doesn't seem to be any improvement in her health.
