My 9 yr old son was tested for diabetes, which came back negative, however, his chloresterol was high and his doctor recommended our seeing an endocrinologist.
My question is - would have of the below issues be related to one thing.
A. His is overweight - he outweighs his 18 yr old brother - 113 lbs at 49"
B. His scrotum is extremely small. He's been this way since birth and I almost sued the doctor for cutting off too much during his circumsion:). At 9, I see no difference from when he was 3.
C. Chalky teeth. At 5 he had to have caps put on all of his molars because his teeth were breaking apart.
D. Diagnosed with Keratosis Polarisis - bumby red skin on his back and the backs of his arms.
He has no learning disabilities and we have no conduct issues with him. He's above average at school and is always taking on new things to do.
He eats like everyone else in the house - the same quantities - he just keeps gaining.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
