not colic

I started out nursing...the baby began spitting up/vomitting...lost weight..positive for occult blood...tried nutramigen...still occult blood.  Saw peds GI..."allergy"...put on elecare...continued vomitting,  crying all the time.
upper GI series:  severe reflux
on elecare, prevacid, rice cereal in bottles...finally negative for occult blood.
vomitting,  lost 5 ounces,  crying all the time
help?  what else could it be?  should I go back to nursing?

Just want to say that fructose malabsorption or hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI) is possible.

Try to find some food witout fructose/sucrose. Maybe you can try to start nursing again. Are you taking some medicines?

Corn syrup itself is not problematic, but it is possible that it is "high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)", which can cause diarrhea in fructose malabsorption.

Avoid: any fruits, any fruit juices, honey, corn syrup and sorbotol (sorbitol is  a sugar alcohol, on labels it is referred as polyols). He can have table sugar but in limited amount, since it contains fructose.

*Read my journals about low-fructose diet.
