London – In the UK there is a child who can only eat potatoes.
He is 19 months old, and suffers from eosinophilic gastroenteritis, a serious disease that affects the stomach and intestines and cause abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss.
Born with a birth went without complications, the baby has experienced particularly difficult times in the first period of life.
He seemed in good shape, apart from minor difficulties in falling, until, one day, while he was in the arms of his mother, began to lose all strength, his body became softer, her skin began to be tinged with blue.
Along with potatoes the child can drink water and a hypoallergenic solution called Neocate that provides nutrients that would have to take through any kind of food.
Hope is a new medicine that is able to alleviate the disorder.
