Danny's GI appointment
So Danny went to the GI today. First off I really hope the scales are different because if not than he lost from 23lb 4oz down to 22lb 9oz again...

They are not going to do a scope at this point but here is the list of tests they have ordered.


CBC with Diff,Plt
Comp Met profile
TSH/Tree T4
Celiac Genetic Panel
Serum Trypsinogen

Stool Elastase
Stool for Fat
Fecal Lactoferrin
Fecal Calprotectin

Sweat Chloride Test Monday the 24th...

So I am a little nervous as I don't know what all of these are and really don't want the ones that I do know what they are to come back positive...STRESS!!!

They are not doing anything invasive because Danny is/was gaining and the Neocate should be able to repair the damage done by the allergies. We go back to his office on 04/17. That is all for now!!!

Keep fingers crossed and pray that the sweat test comes back normal this time!!!

Oh and BTW he finally has an official diagnosis of FTT...

I hope the scales are off. Good luck with the testing, I hope they come back negative.. but if something does come back positive, at least you have an answer. *hugs* Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that the sweat test comes back normal. And I'm sorry to hear you guys have the official diagnosis :(

Re: Danny's GI appointment
I'd be willing to bet the scales are off, because each scale does weigh slightly different. I try to keep that in mind when we go from our ped. office to the GI or if we use a differnt scale the the normal one we use, because they are off by more than a few ounces.

Re: Danny's GI appointment
The sad part is that the last time he was there was August 6 of last year and he weighed 21lb 8oz...I am just so frustrated and soo overwhelmed. I don't know what to do next.

Re: Danny's GI appointment
I am guessing one of the scales is off...
Abbey has had all those tests done as well, she just had her sweat test done last week!
Good luck and I hope you get some answers!

Re: Danny's GI appointment
Danny's sweat test was NEGATIVE!!!! 29! I have never been so happy to see the number 29!!! He goes for a weight check with his ped on Wednesday which is his only DR who acts like I am causing my child to be sick and small......GRRRR!!! I hate his ped but it is the only one that I can get to even see him because he has state insurance...and at least they make sense..

His last ped was a quack...I called because he had a bleeding diaper rash...found out later was from carrots...and that ped said that I put too much ointment on him....PLEASE!!!

But anyway, back on track....GOOD NEWS FINALLY!!!! Back to square one but at least it isn't CF!
