2 Yr Old Daughter

hi,

i am after some advice really....

basically my daughter who is 2 and 1/2 has been declared 'cliniclly obese'

on my last visit to hospital to look for possible reasons for this, they requested blood tests for celiac disese,

my daugter is a fit healthy girl, never really been ill, was a happy contented bottle fed baby,

yes she is slighty bigger than the average 2 and 1/2 yr old but she has followed the same growth patten as my 8 yr old, and myself.

but as soon as i hit puberty the weight fell off me and has never returned,

so basically i have brushed off there comments,

until now as she has started to be sick after she has eaten eggs the last few times... could this be connected??

:(

she could just have a egg allergy. It could be so many things. It is not a clear cut, YES it sounds like Celiac though. Just be patient and wait to see what the panel shows.

Better to get the testing done. If she is Celiac or gluten intolerant, a gluten free diet can spare her so many other problems in the future.

I would get her tested to rule out any problems, and if by some chance it isn't celiac disease then you are going to have to modify her diet a little, and take her out for more exercise. I had to do that for my 4 year old when they told me she was 5lbs overweight. It was fun to go run around the yard. The whole family can do it. :D

please dont get me wrong but thats common sense,

see thats the thing, she has been on a fruit, vegetable and fresh meat diet since she was 8 months, when i was 1st told she was over weight, she has fat free milk, she eats very little really,

for example breakfast today was half a banana!

she goes to a swimming club and to tumble tots (the local club where she runs, climbs, dances etc..) she is always on the go.

thanks for comments,

I wouldn't worry about her weight. She just is bigger, some kids are. My 3 year old son is a little chubby too, but I know he eats as healthy as possible as he is diabetic. It's called "baby Fat" for a reason. His dad was too, and now he is 6'0 and 160 lbs. Hardly fat.

You said they ran the panel already right? What did it turn up?

I know it's common sense, but you can't assume too much online. :D
