Allergy in digestive tract, lactose intolerance, intermittent spasms, loose stools, diarrhea. What is allergic bowel problem called?

An allergy specialist at a support group last night mentioned a name for the condition in which the digestive tract has an allergic reaction. My son doesn t tolerate dairy and we have removed it on a gross scale, but not on a microscopic scale and he has intermittent spasms, loose stools or diarrhea , etc. The family doctor referred us to a pediatric gastroenterologist to begin assessment. Will that specialist be able to distinguish between inflammatory bowel disorder and this allergy problem? What is the allergic bowel problem called?

allergic bowel can only be found out by doing blood serum tests for specific antibodies for food proteins
if no results after diary removal it can be other proteins like wheat potato rice or chana or any other
you may get tests for all food proteins you use and elimination can help more than guessing
