Hi everyone.. I am posting about my Daughter who is 5yrs old. Nine months ago she suffered from bouts of vomitting, her food just simply wasn't digesting and she would Vomit when her stomach reached its full compasity. After a while that went away and after doing a scope she was Diagnosed with H-pylori and has done 2 rounds of antibiotics. The first round in May and the 2nd just 2 weeks ago. Her stomach pain has not subsided and now she has a burning sensation in her stomach, which is a new symptom. I called her Gastro Dr and they have decided that they want to do another scope to look at her stomach. She is currently on 60mg of prevacid and take childrens Maalox . She has a low fat diet, doesnt drink soda, eats a pretty bland diet.She has been test via blood tests for H-pylori (neg) Gluten Allergy(neg) Celiac (neg) They have tested her blood for allergies but she has never had a reg allergy test which is more sensitive... I think that they are missing something and my daughter is paying for it. I am considering putting her on a vegitarian diet or vegan since she doesnt like meat anyways,,. any suggestions are greatly appreicated. Thanks Misty

* I know that she isn't faking it to get out of doing anything or for attention
