In Topic: Has Anyone Ever Been To The Celiac Center In Ny?

27 September 2008 - 02:54 AM

My son was diagnosed with ODD (Oppisitional Defiance Disorder) about 2 years ago and were told he has some developmental delays. He is in 1st grade this year. My child lies alot and used to have tantrums where he would try and hurts his self. (Bang toys or anything on his head till it was bleeding) When he started Kindergarten he improved almost 100 percent. As far as the accidents my son still has them an average of 1-2 times a week. He doesn't realize he has to go until he feels it in his underwear. We are dealing with this as best as we can.......what else can you do?
Your son does sound VERY small 7 years old and 34 pounds? There is something going on. My suggestion is if you aren't getting anwers/test from his pediatrician...it is time to find a new doctor. Does he complain of stomach aches alot? Any rashes?

He has not complained of stomach aches or rashes. The pedi that he has which is 2 different onces in the office that we go to are the only ones that have taken the time to listen to me. They are both females. The males doctors i have seen have blown me off and just told me to put him on the potty more often. Or they would give me medications that he didnt need so that he would poop,which just turned it into a big mess. Now we are having him see a gi pedi and after the 2nd time she saw him he hadnt grown any in 2 months, she was even more concerned then she was the first time she met him. She found out after the first apt and blood work she orded that he was anemic. She is no skirting around like the doctors my son has had in the past. I am wondering what oppisitional defiance disorder is.

I've noticed a couple of posts on this issue, and thought I'd throw the question out there in case any of you have come up with research, or links, or if you just have your own observations to share!

I am soo new to this its not funny. About a week ago my 7 yr old saw the gi and said she wanted to do a biospy on him because she believes that he has this disease. He is 34 lbs 43" and hasnt gained or grown in 2 months. He was 4'8" at birth, i didnt do anything that i shouldnt have done while pregant with him. Since he started kindergarten about 2 yrs ago he started having accidents, he wouldnt sit still in the class room, would hide under tables, walk out of the room, jump around like a frog, he would sneek into my kitchen at nite to sneak food after he would be put to bed for the nite. He wouldnt sleep till sometime after 1 am and be up by 6 am. He was lying all the time about everything. He got a knife that was in a box that was just on the entertainment center for show, we never opened it to show anyone or anything like that. One day he came out of his room and came into mine where i was doing laundry and said he cut his finger on his brothers toddlers bed, which at the time was metal. I felt all over the frame and didnt find anything, figured maybe he caught it just right. Then I walk out into the living room and notice a picture was missing from the entertainment center so i looked behind the couch where they liked to put things and noticed the box for the knife. I got scared because at that moment i knew someone had the knife. I had 3 kids all under the age of 5. The youngest being 2. I tryed to get him to tell me where the knife was so noone would get hurt. I found there thomas sofa all cut up. We ended up finding the knife inside the play couch. We tired for 2 hrs to get him to tell us where the knife was. He is doing alot better now, with the bahavoiral things but still having accidents in his pants. I dont know if any of this means anything to anyone but I just want to help my little boy. Its been a rough 2 yrs. Been fighting with his school because of the accidents. I would have to take him out of school bring him home, change him and clean him up and then take him back. Then they had him go in 2 hrs late to see if his accidents would stop at school. They didnt. They did over the summer till about thanksgiving time last year. So far this school year he's had noone at school but dozens at home. Please if anyone can help it would be apprecaited. Thank you.

In Topic: Cronic Ear Infections

24 September 2008 - 09:47 AM

Okay my stepson is 6 yrs old and has had cronic ear infections since an infant, for a few years now he's had bowl issuies where sometimes he's in a lot of pain from pooping, he has speech issuies (not sure if he gets it from his mother who cant talk right), and he's has alot of anger towards his brothers and towards me when i try to disipline. The anger with his brothers are he thinks that he can do what he wants to anything and anyone with out someone saying anything. With me when i try to get him to calm down or tell him he's wrong, he yells and screams how he hates everyone in the family and he's the boss. He's gone as far as to tell me he's going to get his mother's boyfriends gun and shoot me with it, or get a knife and cut me with it. Any idea if we should get him tested or atleast seen to discusse him having the possibilities of having celiac?

I use the huggies clean team. I contacted them and they said that Kimberly-Clark consumer products do not contain wheat, rye, barley, spelt, triticale, kamut or farina. Certain Kimberly-Clark products do contain oats. The only Kimberly-Clark products containing oats are HUGGIES® Soft Skin products. Hope this helps.
