I thought I would see what you guys think:
My daugthter is 20 mos old and has had chronic diarrhea for almost a year now. She has had several blood tests, an endoscopy, and allergy testing. They thought she could be lactose intolerant, but the endoscopy showed the otherwise. also she is negative for Chron's Disease and Celiac Disease (per the endoscopy). She has been tested for parasites all come back negative. The gastroenterologist (spelling?) and our pediatrician seem to think it is Toddlers Diarrhea and will out grow when she is 3 or 4! I just don't by that diagnosis! Last week she had her allery tests all came back negative (they tested her for 32 different items). The allergist thinks she could have a dairy intolerance - therefore asked us to do a strict 6 wk diet of dairy free foods. I am finding it difficult at her age because she loves to eat. I had to stay by her side at a cook-out yesterday so no one would would feed her. I know I can give her fruits and veggies, but the gastro Dr. previously said to limit and only give her bananas and apples (she goes back to him the 22nd of this month). She does not get any fruit juice (per the gastro Dr). Any food ideas or even your opinions would be appreciated. Thank you.
