She has had behavioral problems for years - at one point he said they had her on Abilify, but decided that was a bit strong for a 9 yr old. They are coming at this from a good place - don't continue to mask the problem...get to the root of it. She has been very tired and almost depressed for awhile, which is why they had the tests done. They went through standard pediatrician who specializes in dietary restrictions (which is why I was surprised she didn't run a celiac panel or blood vitamin/mineral tests). Apparently this Dr is very in demand (they had the blood draw in August and couldn't get a follow up appt to go over results until this past Friday 11/8 - crazy!!) I of course did not discount the Dr's opinion, but I did explain to him that a lot of this information is subjective and it would be in their best interest to get the celiac panel done now before they make radical changes to her diet (that way they can have the other kids tested if it comes back positive as well). I was trying my best to help with recipes and food ideas, but I'm allowed dairy (in small amounts) and all my good recipes contain something she can't have. Mostly need lunch ideas to take to school - poor kid.
