Well, it would be easier if I tell you the tests we DIDN'T do. The only thing left are the muscle/skin biopsy and lumbar puncture. We are still waiting for results of the mDNA (mito DNA) and SNIP (testing for a million chromosomal mutations).
How old is your child? and I see he or she is walking. When was this milestone reached if you don't mind me asking? I am curious since you said your child is very low tone.
Walking at 16 or 17 months is hardly late in the low tone world!
My typical nephew walked at 2 yrs. old and no one batted an eye.
Devon was born 41 weeks weight was 7lbs. 11 oz. and was 21-1/2 inches. Apgars were 9/9. No lightweight and placenta was of normal size.
It sounds like the main issue with your los is endurance.
I wonder if your los has has metabolic testing. Some of the basic things are screened like hypothyroidism at birth but it is really basic and metabolics can cover a lot of ground. We have done the metabolics and now are looking at the mitochondria.
Sounds like my son! Low tone, fatigue, but sensory seeking!
I agree with looking into metabolic issues. Especially since it looks like there's multi-system involvement.

I think low tone kids are often sensory seeking--especially proprioceptive. My son is. He has a metabolic condition but we didn't know until he was 3.5. His main things were fatigue, hypotonia, and developmental delays/differences. I posted on your other thread a link with metabolic information.
