Boy With Rare Allergy Can Only East Venison
From Connecticut’s WTNH News:
It's lunchtime for Timmy Armstrong and his stepfather is cutting up prepared venison for the little boy. Deer meat is the only solid protein that the six year old can stomach.
"I say I'm on a diet, I can't eat a lot of food," Timmy said.
Timmy has eosinophilic esophagitis, a disease that is relatively new to doctors. It is characterized by an intense inflammation of the esophagus associated with allergies.
