Weight Loss

23 September 2010 - 08:38 PM

How is the weight loss determined. My 7 year old daughter has always been a slow gainer but in 2 years she hasn't gained weight. She does but it comes right back off. Its frustrating because the Dr. seems worried though she is still in normal percentiles at a curve she has stayed on with exception maybe to this last visit showing she hasn't gained since her 5 year well child exam.

Does gaining and losing the same 5 lbs count as weight loss as a symptom? I'm not sure I want to submit her to testing and just try out a gluten-free diet. Should I actually have her tested before removing it form diet.

I suspect we could have had undiagnosed family history. My grandmother had stomach issues most of her life. In her later years they determined she did have Chrohns Disease and I know this sometimes goes a long with celiac.
