Long story short (hopefully!)-- I have a 9 month old little girl that has been diagnosed as failure to thrive since she was approximately 2 months old. She is less than 1% on growth chart for height and weight but 50% for head. She is also developmentally delayed with her gross motor skills (cant sit up or bear weight on feet). We have done the following test: echo, bronchoscope, MRI of spine and head, blood work for thyroid disorders, immuglobin test, complete genetic workup, and sweat test for CF. The only thing that came back NOT normal was that she has a PDA in her heart and a floppy epiglottis neither of which so serious that it would cause FTT. Her sleep is good but eating is sporatic meaning she'll eat good for 2 weeks then not good for 2 weeks. Also constantly constipated. Anyone have any suggestions for us? We have plans to see a ped GI dr. next week and neurologist and endo in near future but I am fearful they won't have the answer either! Any advice or similar situations would be much appreciated!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
