Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome


The Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and The FPIES Foundation. It is intended to provide educational information on healthcare savings resources for families who have children living with this diagnosis.

Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) is a type of food allergy affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Classic symptoms of FPIES include profound vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration. These symptoms can lead to severe lethargy, change in body temperature and blood pressure. Unlike typical food allergies, symptoms may not be immediate and do not show up on standard allergy tests. Furthermore, the negative allergy evaluation may delay the diagnosis and take the focus off the causative food. Nonetheless, FPIES can present with severe symptoms following ingestion of a food trigger.
