Our older daughter was well within the scope of a 'normal' child before the elimination diet. The only reason she did it was because the whole family did it to support her sister. We would never have sorted out why she was always covered in bruises, got such growing pains and frequent headaches, why she was always restless and talked loud and why she was so skinny. All these disappeared on the diet. Thanks to our dietitian we found she is, among others, intolerant to gluten. – by email, Qld
