Diagnosing 12 Month Old

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm new here, and wanted to check out all you wise folks! :)

Here is our story: I discovered, just the other day, how very alarming my daughter's stools are. I had no idea white poop was so alarming. She has had it several times before, but most recently had it for 5 days. She has been sleeping more than usual lately, 12 + hours at night, and 4-5 hours (in two naps) during the day. She is starting to refuse foods, but I had thought that to be age appropriate. :) Her poop is currently changing from white creamy soft poo to very constipated light brown. The other day her tummy was SO distended, a few hours after throwing-up. She has had many many seemingly random fevers over the past year.

I don't know what to be looking for. The doctor, as a result of seeing the white poop, ran a bunch of blood tests, including something for celiac, as well as looking at the liver, gall bladder, and spleen.

What symptoms would I be seeing in a 12 month old? She is normally, very content and happy. Recently, she has been fussier and oh so tired. I just thought she was teething!

My husband and I don't have celaic disease. I have a host of other problems, PCOS, thyroid disease...

She is the youngest of 3 girls.

Thank you SO much!

Your child does sound Celiac to me. Please try the gluten-free diet no matter what the tests say, as they are terribly inaccurate, especially in young children. Also, thyroid disease is linked to Celiac, and most people who have Celiac aren't properly diagnosed. So I wouldn't rule that out either.

Glad you found this site, and I hope your daughter gets better soon!
