Please Help-Not Sure What To Make Of These Symptoms
Posted 16 January 2013 - 09:42 AM
My dd has had reflux since she was a baby. She is 3.5 and still has it although it has gotten a little better over time.
She was FTT as an infant and colicky. I breastfed her. When I stopped BF around 13/14 months and she drank pediasure (for weight gain) she gained a lot of weight. Went from 3rd% to 30% in less than a year. SHe did not eat many solids. When she did it was mostly cheese and meat. I would joke that she was on the atkins diet. Around 2 she began to eat a wider variety of things and not just meat and dairy. I was pleased that she was suddenly more interested in food but with increased intake came chronic constipation.
Around this time she also became low toned. She was not before then. Its not profound. SHe walks, run, hops, etc but I notice it. Especially in fine motor skills. She does not have any delays. SHe has many GI problems.
-occasional vomiting (started happening around 2/2.5)
-foul gas (improved with probiotic)
I dont notice a worsening of symptoms when she eats anything in particular.
She was tested for celiacs at 9 months and tests were negative.
She had low vitamin D and low IGF1at 9 months. Not sure if those are related.
Father has low appetite, very thin, foul gas (sorry DH) very low vitamin D and low B12
Aunt has IBS
Grandfather has hyperthyroidism
I dont know what to do. Any suggestions appreciated. Our GI doc has nothing to offer us. Thank you

I would think it might be time to retest celiac - and have dad tested too!
