Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (“F-PIES”) is a food allergy affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Acute symptoms of FPIES include profound vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration which can lead to shock. Chronic symptoms of FPIES may manifest in increasingly severe vomiting, diarrhea, and poor growth and progress to sepsis-like illness. Please note that each child is unique and may experience their own range and intensity of these symptoms and benefit from individualized care.
The FPIES Foundation is a 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to overcoming the challenges of FPIES by offering tools for education, support, and advocacy to empower families and the medical community.
