Topics I've Started

Confused...please Help!

30 January 2004 - 02:41 PM

Hello, my name is Becca. I have a little girl, 15 months old who has had trouble since she was about 4 mos old with weight gain. Now at 15 months, she weighs 18 pounds, 1 ounce and is 30 inches tall. She is generally happy but looks so little and frail. Two weeks ago we got results back from bloodwork and she was positive. We met with the GI and he suggested biopsy, we denied because she is so little and I just cant bring myself to do it. It just makes me want to cry to even think of it. We decided to do gluten-free for 2-3 months and see where her weight is. Well on first 2 weeks of diet she dropped 5 oz. I know kids weights fluctuate, but still I am concerned. If anyone has been through this please help. We have had such a hard year, I thought we were starting to arrive at an answer, she has been much happier and calmer since gluten-free but who knows.
