So I have been on this quest for 2 years. My son has had chronic diariah since his started solid foods at 12 months and he is now 3. His current pediatrician kept putting me off and said just cut out dairy. So we did for 8 months. It didn't help. So I went in again to beg him to do a blood allergy test. Finally after talking him into it, he did the test. He did a full panel including the blood test for celiac disease. About a week later we go the results... nothing. He wasn't "allergic" to anything. So i asked.. what do we do next. He said come in again for another appt. I decided to just "try" taking him off of gluten. The reason I wanted try it anyways was that Celiac Disease runs really strong on my husbands side of the family. So at first i just cut out the items that had the most gluten in it. With a week, his diariah was almost gone :D After 2, it was totally gone. I decided to make the appt to go back and see the doctor. What did the doctor tell me? "You just need to cut out dairy." Are you kidding me? He just blew me off and wouldn't even listen to anything I was saying. So now i'm looking for a new pediatrician for my son. If anyone has any reccomendations, I would really appreciate it. This has been a frustrating two years......

I am in the process of finding a new pediatrician, but we do have a great pediatric gastroenterologist. With all your child's problems you should easily get a referral to a specialist. Her name is Dr. Terry and she practices at Doernbecker Children's Hospital at OHSU. She's awesome and very highly recommended by many physicians and GIG.
