My daughter has had diarrhea EVERY SINGLE DAY for at least 6 months. We've seen three doctors and they all say that she just eats too much fruit. Her weight has stopped progressing. At 18 months old she was in the 75th percentile for weight. At 2 she has dropped below the 10th percentile. And the same for her height. I am very worried. But no one else seems to be. I need help! We live in a small town and it seems no one wants to hear me out.View Thread
That's what's driving me crazy. They haven't done any tests! THey told me to take her off fruit so we did but there was no change. No one has celiacs that we know of. And there is only heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease in our families. I'm tempted to just bring in a stool sample and tell them to test it!View Thread
