Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, I am sorry to hear of your situation. What tests and procedures have been carried out so far?
barium swallows and barium meal, enema,s blood tests, xrays brain scan , ultra sound , and many medications no of which work at all.
Has your grand daughter been tested for Allergies?
Gluten and Milk Allergy for example
no they don't seem to thick it is that as she is sick so much
Have they tested for these including wheat allergy
I believe they should test for these 3 allergies, as when a child has a chronic constipation problem, and tests are clear. It is generally down to one of these allergies.
The simplest way to test for these is to completely remove the food from the child's diet for at least 5 days, and see if symptoms clear.
we have mentioned this several times but they don't seem to think there is a need, its so frustrating, she is now waiting to see a pediatric gastroenterologist in Bristol
As you are at your wits end, and all tests have proved negatively. It is worth checking every possible cause. I would also suggest taking a probiotic supplement before breakfast on an empty stomach. Human intestines contain around a kilo of bacteria, some beneficial and some disease causing. Probiotics reduce the numbers of pathogenic bacteria by competing with them for adhesion to the colon wall.
A pediatric gastroenterologist would be a good referral, and they are the specialists in this field. They would run all the allergy tests as well. If there is still no benefit, there are surgical options as a last resort.
Thankyou very much for your help we will give what you suggested a go
