He has seen the GP, not a pediatrician. No testing done. GP just saying that this is normal in children. He'll grow out of it!!! His development is very good, no problem there, walking and running about the place and his form is very good. There have been 'bugs' going around but this predates any 'bugs'
No, the child is not losing weight, although his stomach is bloated occasionally. He's generally a happy, active child, very good disposition. Its just the food thing. He's obviously growing well, but his stomach seems to just reject/eject the food a lot. It comes up thick, and sometimes he gets red in the face with the vomiting. He's tired for a little while and then he's fine. He does have plenty of liquids. Would it possibly be the consistency of the food, which is not being pureed...just mashed, and kind of lumpy.
Should the GP not have spotted this? What is eosinophils exactly? Is it like 'reflux'?
Do you think it is anything to worry about? I mean it cannot be right for a child to wake up ill during the night at his age..crying, and then to puke copious amounts, and finally settle down about an hour later? This is a chronic problem as its going on for months!!!
Ok, thank you for this.
