When my daughter was 9 she would eat all day and then throw up the food she ate from the day at night only. Finally at age 13 she was told her gallbladder was bad and had it removed. This took care of the problem, so I thought. Right before her 16 birthday this September she started throwing up and did so for 10 days before being hospitalized for 4 days. They did a CT scan and endoscope and found nothing wrong. I was told she had rumination syndrome. After reading the material on rumination syndrome I know that is not was is wrong with her. No matter if she eats or not she throws up. Her vomit is brown and smells horrible. Over the years I have changed her diet to no avail. The only blood test showed that her insulin levels were high but not her glucose. She was also diagnoised with fatty liver. I have brought her to several doctors and all they do is run 2 or 3 test and then dismiss us. Can anyone help me. I have even searched the website with no luck. I am running out of options.
