  1. Ok, I took my son to the Pedi GI yesterday. I have been thinking celiac disease since the allergist told me that wheat may be the culprit. I never saw the numbers, but his IgE's were 124 at 2 years old. The concentration was kU/1. Now, I am confused. The pedi GI ordered all IG's. IgE, IgA, IgG, etc. I thought they were all realted to allergy?? He also ordered CBC with white blood count differential. I mentioned celiac disease and he sat back in his chair, and hmmm'd then told me that is a definite possibility. He is also thinking parasite. So, my question is this....if his IgE's came back at 124 per kU, then why didn't the allergist run the other's? Or is this normal to run just one IG test for allergies? Jenn
  2. First off, at two years old, they are more then capable of going for longer peroids of time w/o food. Your son is nursing way to much, and is using you as a pacifier. You, as a Mom, need to limit your son's nursing. I too, am not tryin g to sound harsh, but, you need ot find anotehr comfort source. I am not saying to quit nirsing totally, but, he does not need to be a newborn. Or nurse as often as a newborn. If he has been tested for allergies, and none has shown up, as of yet, then you need to get him on Soymilk, form a cup, and eliminate dairy and wheat. Go gluten-free and MILK free. My son has an allergy to the milk protein. That is found in BM btw. Like I said, hats off to you for nursing still, but you need to cut WAY back on the number of nursings. Hold your child, comfort your child, but don't constantly nurse him when he is in pain. It is not helping you, nor him. And try to get him off the milk protein totally. Jenn
  3. Ok, I fist posted son spent the day with severe stomach cramps. (I gave him bread before coming here.) He also spent the nite puking his little guts up. I have a son is higly allergic to dairy. I have him on say milk. My DBF told me soy is a gluten. Is it? Jenn
  4. Hi, I have really no advice. My son has not been Dx with Celiac's, we are in the beginign stages, but I am 110% positive that is what he has. My Mom just does not get it. A friend does, b/c she too has the disease. And personally I think I do to, in some form. LOL!! But, my Miom thinks I am being way over protective. Wish she could have been there with me last nite while my baby was puking his guts up b/c he had gluten yesterday. One day, hopefully the word will get out that this i sjust as bad as any other allergy, you might not be able to see it, but the suffer's sure feel it. Jenn
  5. Thank you. I will be calling the Dr. today. I gave him some toast this morning....before coming here. sitter just called. He was in the back ground screaming in pain saying his tummy hurt. She made a comment on how bloated his tummy is. She said he had a super stinky BM and was pacing. I told her he is gonna have anotehr one, and sure enough, while on the phone with me, he did. He poots, and bam, the smell hits you, and he had a loose, mucousy stool, that stink to hi heaven, and he is fine. However, he won't eat now cuz he says it make shim sick. It i slike this has been building up, and now all of a sudden, I can't stop it. However, I got y'alls list....I was lurking through soem post's, and have it printed off. One for me, one for the istter, and one for his Step Mother. Yes, I am single! LOL!! Thanks!
  6. Hi. My name is Jennifer. I have a 2.5 year old son who I think might have this. Let me give you a little back ground info. Brayden has always been a "sick" child. He has had ear infection on top of ear infection. Finally at 1 year of age, we had tubes placed. Which are still there today. Going on two years! Unusual to say the least. This cured the EI problems, for the most part, but not others. At 9 months of age he was yanked off formula totally and put on regualr soy milk. We saw a slight improvement with the "reflux." Since one year of age we have had three to four different EI's, Exzema, and numerous cases of conjunctivitis. I realized a deeper problem was the underlying cause of all this. I had him allergy tested at 2 years of age. He came back with a 0/1 or 1 on most of the seasonal and envior. allergens. However, his IgE score was way above a normal one. So, I had them run the foods. RAST Test. The Dr. called me back as soon as he got the reults. His advise get him off dairy..ASAP! He told me he was also allergic to wheat, egg white and coconut. But I did not need to difcontinue use of them. About 6 months ago, right after we got Brayden off the dairy, I noticed his stools were very loose and stinky. I chalked that up to the fact he was stricly on soy products now. Then, I noticed that he had watery, mucosy stools every 3-4 days. That has since progressed to him vomitting and now severe stomach cramping. I called the ENT/Allergist and he referred me to a pedi GI. At first he was reluctant to do it as he thoguht Bray had a bug. But, I have told him, D does not last for months and months. So, he told me to scale back on the wheat and Gluten, and he will make an appt. with the GI specialist. So, last nite, I gave him some chicken tenders, they had wheat in them. With in 1 hour he was having cramps and the big D. He even paces and cries now. I am sure that he has this, or some form of a gluten protein allergy or disease. I just want my normal happy child back. Then one I lost when he was 9 weeks old. LOL!!! I am not sure if I should take him compltetely off gluten, as we have not seen the specialist, or wait till after they do blood work to see. I hate the fact that I am putting him in pain when I have an idea, very good one, of what is causing it. He won't even go to the potty anymore b/c of this. Also, his is awful. And not, it is not normal 2 year old behviour. He bites for no reason at all. I had thought that maybe he was Autistic b/c of the biting social interaction, etc. But, I am thinking he is biting b/c he is in pain and does not want to be messed with. Thank you for "listening", and please, share experiences with me. Let me know if I am way off base, or have hit the nail on the head! Thanks!
