My son is 6, he wieghs 39 pds and has not gained a pound in 3.5 years. He has always had cronic consipation, headaches, Throwing up weekly, terribly smelly stools when he does poop, bad stomach pains that makes him hurl over in fetal postion screaming of pain, he has vitaligo ,which is a form of autoimmune diese, he has a rash, always icthy. He has had these problems since he was about 2, doctors said it was his vegas nerve that was sentive and being constipated.
After some reasearch of my own, blood test that said Allergy Level was high and protien was low. I beleive he has Celiac.GI doctor said it was probable. We are waiting on a a biopsy to confirm. I have had him Gluten free for about a week now and he is pooping regular and doesnt complain as about stomach. After eating gluten free yogurt he had a fit with tummy and complaining of heart hurting. So I have taken him off of dairy.
My question is do yawl think I on the right track? Also he is a very picky eater he will eat fruits and granola all day but I have a really hard time getting protien in him? Is there a childrens protien supplement for children? Any advice is appreciated
