Since my son's fecal tests for malabsorption came back negative, they are running a fecal elastase test on him...I dropped off the sample today. They are trying to determine if he has pancreatic insufficiency. I have read that the number 1 cause for this in children is CF, which we've already ruled out via sweat test, and another genetic syndrome which I'm 99% sure he doesn't have, and the 3rd most common cause is "ideopathic pancreatitis". I've also read that there are some strong links between Celiac and pancreatitis and so I'm wondering if this is something that anyone else has had experience dealing with, and if it will explain why we've had improvement going gluten free but not stopped the chronic diarrhea overall.
Anyone's Child Have Pancreatits?
