  1. 2.5" bigger on the top part of his abdomen, and 2" bigger right around his belly button. Measurements were taken at 9 am today and 9 pm this evening. Foods consumed today: French toast, hot dogs with buns, and pizza (no cheese). Still on a no dairy diet. Doesn't seem to be the culprit.
  2. I should have also mentioned, that his diet is not very well balanced. He doesn't eat many fruits, hardly any veggies, and he eats a TON of wheat bread...hmm...sure does make you wonder, huh?!?
  3. Yes, he was tested for celiac and it was NEG. it is just thr weirdest thing!! Something isn't right and I want to get to the bottom of it. I take pics all the time. I had the brilliant idea of measuring his belly first thing in the am and then at pm to get more accurate info. Guess we need to make another trip back to the GI specialist.
  4. Hello! I'm new to this, so please forgive me if I make any errors. I have a 5 year old son who displays the following symptoms: - constipation - extremely large bloated belly - gas - skin "itchies" aka "unexplained hives" - tiny bottom, legs, and arms He has been tested by blood and negative to having any food allergies. Here is the crazy thing. When he wakes up in the morning, his belly is normal. He looks like a normal 5 year old. By evening, his tummy is HUGE! He does pass gas at night. He will wake up with a normal belly the following morning and the process repeats. We have gone dairy free for approximately 2 weeks. I have not seen many improvements yet. Maybe I haven't given it enough time, or maybe I need to go gluten-free. Hoping someone has some experience and can offer me some advice.
