Do any of you have a diagnosis as to why your child has weight gain issues or is FTT?

We don't, after much testing we have found nothing except high folic acid and low iron. But today a lady at the health dept. (for Wic., Wic. covers all of our pediasure. 3 a day) suggested that I get a second opinion. We currently se a GI at a childrens hospital, and had multiple children's docs from all ranges of med. profession look at her while we were admitted at the hospital. But she was suggesting trying the childrens hospitals in a different city? I geuss a second question to the one above is , has anyone looked into second opinions as to why your child is FTT, if you don't already have a Diagnosis for the cause of the FTT?

Ask me about dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!

we have been to a GI and they don't have any answers yet, they have done every test under the sun, we have now moved on to a Endocrinologist, she was supposed to have an appt this past wed but she was sick so I cancelled it. Now it's set for 1-26.

Paige has microcephaly (small head, small brain) and it is really common for kids with micro to also be FTT.

Heck no! Our GI is USELESS! She's had lead, thyroid and a list of other tests... NOTHING...
