  1. Thanks! I am going to switch products over as we run out of them. The way I stock my pantry it will be a good 6 weeks or so before we need anything! We have our scope on 5/6 and allergy testing 5/10. The feeding team can't get us in until July 14th! Ughhh I think I'll start to switch over in June after school is over. It can only get better, right?! Thanks again! Carrie
  2. This is my firstpost, so apologies in advance for the long-windedness... I am suspecting that my 7yo may have celiac. All bloodwork has been negative, we have seen a GI who wants to rule out eosinophilic esophagitis with a scope on 5/6. Here are my sons symptoms: 6.5yo 42# (gained 6# last month courtesy of Ensure plus twice a day-800 cal total) Diagnosed at 2.5 with Austism spectrum disorder (speech delay, pt delays) Still on IEP for speech issues, poor retention, and attention issues Diarrhea followed by constipation-has been on Miralax numerous times to help him Cradele cap/Eczema on knees, elbows, head-not responding to treatment Looks tired all the time, still naps 3 hours a day on the weekends-still has bags under his eyes Picky eater (like 3 bites for dinner) Stomach Aches Joint Pain Anemic Also-his younger (5.5yo) brother has the same autism diagnosis as well as skin issues. He's been allergy tested(+for corn allergy) Although we never changed diet because according to the allergist "he likes popcorn and eats fruit snacks-it should be okay" Im thinking I may want to retest with a new allergist! Any tips? Is celiac a possibilty? Any help/advice would be great! Thanks! Carrie
