I took my 15 month old for his checkup and once again he didn't gain any weight and his head didn't grow any either. He has gotten a little taller. He has possible lactose intolerance. Diarrhea almost everyday several times a day. On lactaid milk now which makes it better but still diarrhea. Sores on bottom with regular milk.

Anyways the Dr ordered blood tests to find a cause of slow growth. He hit his developmental milestones. Dr's office calls me to tell me that the alkaline phosphatase is elevated over 1000 (normal would be no more than 300). They are ordering some more testing to be done and an MRI of his brain. I am looking for any information about this and what may be causing the elevated alkaline phosphatase. The nurse mentioned possible vitamin deficiency but then they would still need a cause for that if that is the problem. Could it be caused by the fact he has always had the diarrhea? I am just worried about my baby and what might be going on with him. TIA.
