This is the 5th day of the Soya Challenge Test.
So far so good.
For those of you who are not familiar with the term, a Challenge Test is a Test done to challenge the body to accept certain type of food (e.g. soya, milk, egg) and train the body not to reject the food (a.k.a. known as allergic reaction). The test is basically giving the body the food for a period of time (2-3 weeks), gradually increasing the amount.
So we've been giving Aqila:
Day 1 - 20 ml of Soya milk
Day 2 - 40 ml
Day 3 - 60 ml
Day 4 - 80ml
Day 5 - 120ml (Aqila begged to have more than 100ml)
No major reactions occured. Slight eczema flare up here and there, but no urticaria nor hives are seen. Thank God.
Pray for us that we will overcome the challenge. And soon, Aqila will be able to enjoy the goodness of Tofu and Tempe! Amin
