    Default They want to give him somebody else's poop?!

    I can't stop laughing! I was speaking to the lead research nurse of a nut study that we decided not to do because it required multiple hospital visits exposing DS to all nuts when we've just learned that it's most likely only peanuts he's allergic to (a couple nuts came up with a slight sensitivity but we can do exposure for them at one visit to the hospital). I mentioned to her that I'd read about a peanut study they're doing at the same hospital that would include giving DS probiotics with peanuts to hopefully 'cure' him. She said she'd look into it and got back to me with this:

    Yeah, I have heard about fecal transplants for other conditions but it is a pretty difficult idea to wrap your head around.

    Faecal transplants are good for a lot of things.
    They could have sugar coated the name a bit though....

    I don't think I've ever heard of it?! Maybe I have....now that the shock's warn off, I can't remember.

    Was seriously just the last thing I was expecting to read when she said she'd look into the probiotic study I mentioned!

    I'll of course seriously look into and give it consideration, just wasn't expecting to see the word faeces!

    I know it sounds hilarious and really gross, but what it basically is, is a gut flora transplant. :-) I'm not sure if that sounds any better, but it certainly couldn't sound worse!

    I have never heard of a poo transplant before!! But hey, if it works, it's worth doing.

    Heard about this a while ago. Half of me thinks like most - ew gross!! - and the other half thinks that it makes sense.

    Some of my friends care for baby wallabies, and if the wallaby has a gut problem, one way the fix it is to mix a bit of healthy-wallaby-poo into their milk bottle. You might even see them do this out in the wild, nibbling on another wallaby's poop. So yeah, it makes sense if you can get your head around the gross factor.
