My 7yr old girl was dx last April at that time she had a BMI of 92% , now it's 96% since going gluten free, which is in the extreme category. Too many bad carbs was introduced by myself and hubby, not to mention eating out at Outback too much at first also. We go to Pedi for a 6wk healthy lifestyle check up and we are now very mindful of what we eat and are now on a 30 -45 minute daily exeercise routine. She is 53 inches tall and 86 lbs, tallest and biggest in her class since Kindergarten.
It's real easy to gain at first. My girl doesn't like many veggies and she stopped eating most fruits after going gluten-free so I substituted with carbs. Now we are back to 4-5 fruits and veggies a day even if its the same ones everyday. She also gets daliy multi vitamins , Omega for her cholesterol, and fiber supplements.
We put a a.m. snack chart and p.m. snack chart together she gets to pick her own, also with a lmtd dessert rule Mon-Fri of a no sugar Jello or fruit tube only. She is only maintaining right now but hope to lose when weather gets better. Also, we also eat lots of popcorn.
Good luck with everything.
That sounds like my daughters weight and height (she is six). But she has no symptoms and is healthy as a horse.
My son has the mood problems, the tummy problems, the bowl problems (going between C and D) and constant nausea. The poor thing is already lactose intolerant (tho not bad)
Was your child diagnosed Celiac or Gluten intolerant?
