Recurrent Abdominal Pain (RAP) in children is common and causes significant functional impairment and poor quality of life. Lifestyle factors such as diet, anxiety, and stress are important triggers of abdominal pains, but there is lack of high quality research evidence on optimal treatment modalities in children. This study aims to evaluate the effect of food elimination on abdominal pain frequency and severity in a cohort of children with abdominal pain associated Functional Gastrointestinal Diseases (FGID). The primary outcome will be a comparison of abdominal pain frequency and severity between standard therapy and targeted food elimination, based on IgG antibody results to a multiple food antigen panel. The investigators anticipate that 'targeted dietary elimination' as a treatment strategy will resolve abdominal pain and improve quality of life in children.
