My daughter has had diarrhea since she was 4 months old, usually 3-4 super runny and often mucusy and acidic, but always blood free. She's had every test out there it seems and the only one to come back off was her IgA levels were 7. She has no food allergies, delayed or immediate. She does have reflux that is getting worse the older she gets. She takes prevacid 15mg twice daily (only been on it since she was 15 months) and Miralax 1/8 of a teaspoon every other day. Her pediatric GI says she has a slight anal shelf which is why he is having us try the miralax. She had an endoscope dec. 11, 2009. She does have occasional (and I mean once a year occasional for about 2 weeks) constipation. She gains okay, but then usually drops about 5lbs, the first drop at 8 months. Her height has slowed significantly since the first weight loss. She is about the size of an average 12 month old. AND SHE JUST LOST AGAIN!!!
She often refuses to eat. usually she eats a string cheese and some cottage cheese all day. She drinks about 24oz milk and gets 1 Kid Boost a day. She has low to NO appetite. Her pediatric GI says there is nothing else he can do except a colonscopy and he wants to avoid that. Fruit and veggies seem to make it worse.
What could be going on with her? What can I do to help her?
Its NOT toddlers diarrhea, she keeps loosing weight, then gains, then loses most of it. Please has anyone seen this, can anyone think of another test or diet changes? Please no one should go through this, let alone a 2 year old
