Got Carter’s blood test results today

We went to the pediatrician today to  go over his test results. I thought they would have let me know sooner but just waited.

So, the dr said his iron is on the low normal side, giving him a multivitamin with iron should help. She also said the test for Celiac disease came back negative. That’s a relief in a way but I have also read that a negative result doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a gluten intolerance.

The dr is stumped. We go see a gastroenterologist in October so the ped wants to get two more stool samples before that.

I think I am also going to start up the food journal again. He has had two bad days this week, a couple of the worst diarrhea he has had in awhile. I can’t seem to pinpoint foods. Sometimes it seems something gets him and sometimes he is fine. So we are back to not knowing anything. A couple more months and maybe the next dr can help us.
