(excuse the spelling Im not a USA citizens I live in sweden but find circle of moms very helpfull)

My 18month son is not gaining weight. He only weighs 20lbs. We have done gastroskopi to see if it could be celiaki but the test was negativ. We have also done svettest for CF that was also negative. Other kind of bloodtest have been done. But everything is showing on normal. The doctors thinks it could be allergies and has orderd us not to give him any milk or grains or soy even if the allergi tests shows nothing.
He has been put on neocate which is a complement for all of the things he is missing. But its not helping him that much.

His nose i constantly blocked he cannot breath trough his nose and the doctor says he has an enlarged adenoid. The doctor also says that it could be that the adenoid is preventing hom to gain that much weght. Because he has hard time breathing and has apnea during the nights. Otherwise my son is very active ltille boy that run around and is never still. my question is is there anyone out there who has gone or who is going trough the same thing with their child? has the adenoid operation helped any? Anyone who has a older child who was very petit at a young age and did it change when they groove up??

My son has now removed the adenoid I cannot tell if it has helped any. But he is nothin eating more and unfortunatly I dont think it was the adenoid who was disturbing his weight gain.

Please other moms out there, is there anybodu who is going trough or has been trough something like this....
