Please reconsider eliminating the breast milk - even if only for a day - just to see. Breast milk is very different than other milks but that doesnt mean that as her body heals it isnt finding it difficult to digest (its a common villi issue) young childen tend to react quickly...worth trying for a day or two - if symptoms persist - then uve ruled out a cause, if they resolve...give almond milk a try.

Thanks friends for your support. This is the thing, they found out about the blockage through an x-ray, then they gave her a bulk amount of laxative (PEG 3350) for three days. The day number three she was so sick that she had to lay down the whole day on top of towels because she was passing some kind of yellow water constantly, so I took her to emergency were a "doctor" told me to stop the medication and that the stool would brake down by itself, which it never happened. The last Friday I finally got an appointment to see her pediatrician who told me  "this is not a simple stool blockage" but he doesn't know what it is, so he sent her to do a lot more test (blood and stools) meanwhile she still has diarrhea and pain.... I don't think I have more hair to pull out of my head :(

Waiting to hear another report!! hoping it is a good one! Prayers, good Juju , hugzz and everything eles that can send good vibes your way sweetie!

Hi my dear friends...you won't believe what happened, I eliminated all coconut product and the problem solved the next day!!! it didn't happen when she had the blockage because no matter what, she had "diarrhea" which it was some form of liquid poo trying to go through the blockage, but as soon as the blockage was gone I started the coconut product again, so I couldn't notice any difference...oh boy!! somebody told about cross reactivity and seems that is what was happening...I could do a party, a novel wouldn't be as good as the felling I have now after a week of normal poo...I appreciate very much all your advices and support, seriously!!! now the 2 of us are completely off of any form of coconut...love you guys!!!

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
