Has anyone had success with reducing or eliminating fluid build-up in their kids ears through dietary alterations?

A study published in Annals of Allergy found that 78% of childhood ear infections are associated with food allergies. This study further demonstrated that 86% of these children got significantly better when they eliminated allergic foods.

"They tested 104 children with recurrent ear problems for food allergies. About a third proved allergic to milk. and another third reacted to wheat with a total of 81 children having some allergy to a food they often ate. The scientists then had parents keep those children from eating the offending food for 4 months. Seventy children got better. Those who avoided those foods had significant clearance of the ear.

Then parents added those foods back to the diets of the 70 children. Within 4 months, the middle ears became clogged in 66 of the children."

Have you done any food allergy panels?
