Tritty

Not Sure What This All Means...?

Recommended Posts

My youngest is almost 13 months. He had a ttg and all came back fine. He is small, but has always been a terrible eater (at first it was because his tounge was tied - that broke on it's own). He seems to have some texture issues though - and still has some trouble chewing. He did grow before his last appt and is 50% in height again, but is still 25% in weight. He hasn't gained any weight since he was 10 months old. He is EXTREMELY active. For example, I found him on the kitchen table today :o . He runs. He JUMPS! The doctor thinks that some of his weight issues could be that he is just so active and doesn't eat much table food. But he also said that if he hasn't picked up much weight by his next appt (15 mo) - he would call the GI at Children's again to look into other ways to see if it's celiac...

So the last two weeks I've really been pushing the table food and switched him from his formula to whole milk. His poop went from regular to bright green (like neon) and now to mustard yellow. Any idea what this means? Do you think he's intolerant to milk? Or do you think that it's all of the table food (and gluten therefore) that he's been eating? I'm so confused. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow - but I was just trying to get some ideas...?

Blood test positive for celiac 1/16/07

gluten-free since 1/16/07

Endoscopy 2/13/07 - small hiatal hernia, scalloped mucosa in 1st and 2nd part of duodenum, some erosion of the esophogus.

Two oldest kids - fine so far :)

My 17 mo old has eosinophilic esophogitis. Only showing milk allergy? So completely off dairy for time being to see if that is trigger...

So I went and saw the Dr this morning - he went ahead and referred me to a GI. I can't get in for 2 weeks. Any suggestions what to do until then? Should I keep a food diary for the GI? Or cut back on his table food with gluten...?

If you cut back on the amount of gluten he's consuming, it could skew test results. Does he seem to be in any significant pain or is it just his stools that have changed? If it's just his stools that have changed, I would continue to push the table food. You only have two weeks to wait.

My daughter was the same way, very active at a very early age, and skinny. She's still at 50% for height at 25% for weight and she looks great. She's a little bundle of muscles. It seems to me that 50/25 is still well within the normal range. That being said, if you're Celiac, then he has a much greater risk of being Celiac and you should definitely have him checked periodically.

Yes, he is in pain - I think! He's waking up 3 or 4 times a night and just cries for 5 minutes or so and then goes back to sleep. He seems to have much more gas and burps quite frequently.

I think I would worry less if 5o/25 was closer to where he started out - but he seems to just keep getting lower...

The doctor said the color indicates that his stool is passing through him much more quickly - too quickly...

For my son yellow poop means that he has been exposed to gluten. When he goes off gluten, it takes about 5 days to turn back to brown. Also night waking.

Tritty, it sounds like lactose intolerance intolerance... :unsure:


Gluten intolerant - self diagnosed 2007 (not willing to do gluten challenge) and anemic

no dairy, soy, legumes, eggs, sugar, chocolate

no baked and processed foods (also gluten-free bakery) and high GI (due to hypoglycemia)

enjoy brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and polenta instead

neurological symptoms flare up when glutened and in times of stress

following paleo diet, lots of raw fruit and veg, omega 3 oils, nuts

I feel heathy and able to function for the first time in my life. Thank God.

Organic food gives a great advantage.

Kefir rules!

On a mission to get rid of Candida overgrowth after a stressful event dropped my immune system. On a strict anti-candida diet using herbs and natural remedies. No meds or drugs to make it worse thanks.

alot of burping sounds like it could be reflux.

If he has reflux that could be making him wake up at night as well. Some kids have reflux without us really knowing it. It's called "silent reflux." My son has a pretty severe case of this and also wakes up many times during the night crying. Food issues as far as texture and refusal to eat are also signs of reflux.

I'm glad you got in with the GI. He should be able to figure it out. I say that a little hesitantly because we've had our fair share of TERRIBLE Gi's but we cannot possibly be the norm and I'm sure yours will be fine.

Good luck to you!
