My son is 18 months old and only weighs 20lbs. Every doctors apt he continues to have weight loss for example in the last 3 months he has lost 2lbs. He randomly runs high fevers but acts just fine. His stool is always soft never really solid. The doctor looked at me like I was crazy cause his appetite is not much. He really only eats macaroni. But if he eats anything other than that it is not much just small amounts and then he does not want anymore. They are undergoing test on him right now ie thyroid, parasites, ect. I just know something is not right especially him losing weight so much. Anyone have any ideas? Im open to all
