Failure To Thrive

12 March 2013 - 03:47 PM

My almost 2 year old was recently diagnosed with FFT seeing a GI in April I am waiting on test results for myself. He weighs 20 pounds and is 33 inches he still breast feeds and trying to get him to eat anything is like pulling teeth. He chews the food then spits it out or flat out refuses. He has had 4 crowns on his front teeth and needs more fillings on his molars. 4 of my other kids have the same teeth issues I also have a 13 year old who was diagnosed with abdominal migraines. When we go to the Gi what should we expect? Sorry if this is jumbled I hate seeing dr and getting no real answers been dealing with my Heath issues for yeas and all the dr are clueless. Hopefully my little one will get some answers

Anyone else have a FFT child that was diagnosed with Celiacs?

Dermatitis Herpetiformis ( And Other Rashes)

11 December 2012 - 02:30 PM

I have had a horrible rash around my eyes for almost 2 years down my arms all over my neck. I have been to 5 different dr's in the last month or two I developed a new rash horribly itchy and painful. Went to a new Dermatologist yesterday as soon as he saw the new rash he was pretty sure it's dermatitis herpetiformis did a biopsy and I guess in about 10 days will find out for sure. I have suffered from migraines/headaches most my life and recently have had some pretty uncomfortable heart palpatations.

If the biopsy is positive does that mean I have Celiacs? He did tell me to take gluten out of my diet. I am 39 years old is it common to be diagnosed this late in life?
