My 4yr old little boy hasnt gained any weight in 2 years, hes 31lbs, and has been for 2 yrs, he also 40inches 3ft 4inch tall, tiny little guy, there was a xray done on his bone, and his bone structure is the size of a 2 1/2yr old, so hes behind in growth by 2yrs, hes had chronic diarreah for 1 1/2yrs, so there have been stool samples done on him, and results are: low ph levels in stool and high fat in stool, blood work comes back good or okay, hes been tested for: lactos intolerant-negative, diabetes-negative, malnutritioned-negative, celiac disease(allergic to fiber)-negative did a colonoscopy on him 2weeks ago, but they did find sighns of celiac disease or immature intestines. this christmas eve had 2tablespoons of red blood and 2 quarter sized blood clots coming out of his rectum after his stool, couldnt find out why he bleed from his rectum through the colonoscopy... we try to have him gain weight by giving him high calorie meals, carnation instant breakfast, also he drinks alot of whole milk with half and half & chocolate syrup in it and still doesnt gain any weight, now doctors are saying that hes also behind mentally for his age, he drools alot, i never really noticed it was a problem, but they seem to think so, they say he should be able to hold in his saliva at this age.... he also has leg pains usually while hes sleeping but also during the day, some days he doesnt want to walk around and cries cause hes hurting too bad..
i just dont know what to do or what to look for, i feel like all the things doctors are looking for come back negative, and still dont know anything, and if this is serious i dont want to get the answer too late, please help me...
Thank you ~Sandra~
