Quote: Originally Posted by JacquelineR So you had HG with both pregnancies or just his? Both preg, plus with one of my losses (other was early, and 3rd was twin to this DS). I've considered it supplements, but I've been fearful to add to much in not knowing what was the cause, esp with all the fillers/additives in supplements...I'm here to learn, so please feel free to spam me me with ideas!
Quote: Originally Posted by mtn.mama Malabsorption is complex and kind of snowballs things... I don't see anything wrong in supplementing zinc (at the very least) and anything else you can get into him. My DD takes liquid minerals twice a day (and liquid zinc too) and a bunch of other things. Does he show other signs of malabsorption, like peeling fingernails, dull dry hair, poor dental enamel, delayed dentition? I think one of the things that was...
Quote: Originally Posted by Mammo2Sammo never -One thing I do know that monocyte has mentioned to me is that his stools are light colored - hmmm what else, I don't remember - maybe floats? Yup, floats. I can't help but think that is a malab. issue, unable to process fats...light colored more often than not. I don't even know what normal poop is supposed to look like anymore.

Continuing on... Did you take any medications while you were pregnant? Anti nausea to keep me out of the hospital....lots of iv fluids...prenatals. Do you have any adverse reactions to foods at all? Straight eggs help me poop. Nothing other than that. Does his dad? Nope. I know that's a LOT of questions, but I'm trying to get a feel for what kind of detox systems you (and your child) may have inherited as well as what kind of toxic load you're dealing...

Quote: Originally Posted by Mammo2Sammo Hello Monocyte monocyte is a dear, dear IRL friend. Can you give us any more clues about your son's health, or your own? What supplements have you routinely been taking? How is your thyroid? signs of midline issues? general question - how does a doc determine a malabsorption issue? what can a family do nutritionally to help? Hi!! Clues...hmm. Supplements, as of lately, nothing....
Quote: Originally Posted by changingseasons Have you ever tried a full elimination diet?
