My sister has a 2 yr old son and well hes always had a "juice belly" as we call it, but the way he breaths you could swear he has asthma. My sister had him looked at but the doc said he has no traces of asthma. I was wondering why he has such a "juice belly"? as in its very firm not a fat belly its just kinda like a beer gut just in a 2 yr old. im very concerned about him after watching mystery diagnosis on discovery health channel. i dont know if im just over reacting or what? but his breathing sounds like he has asthma, and the reason why i know is because i have asthma and i know what it sounds like. if anyone could help me i would appreciate it very much!
