I wish I could help you... But the only thing I can add is that you should be talking to your doctors and go to another doctor if you feel like they are not offering you any help.. and please keep us all posted... I will say a prayer for the little man.

Maggie~ When my son wasn't gaining weight, they ran ALL sorts of tests. Two different ones were for cystic fibrosis and Hirschsprung's disease and celiac. Has he been tested at all for anything? We also saw a nutritionist through our doctor and gave us high calorie meals to feed him. Hope some of this helps. Good luck
