I'm glad the xray was ok. What were they looking for with that? Was it of her whole body?
I don't have time right now, but there are ways to get money for healthcare when you have enough not to qualify for medicaid, but not enough to actually get help.
What industry/kind of work does your husband do? You?
|I posted awhile ago about the issues we are having with dd (5 months) and "her" allergies. I haven't been posting in this thread for a bit because I was waiting for my "leaky gut" test to arrive from Genova Diagnostics and was waiting to take it and get the results.
Well, I got the results and my ND was shocked. Apparently the lactulose levels were something like 4.6 (when they should be under 1.2?) but my mannitol levels were just slightly high. The doctor at the labs actually wanted to know if I had been to any foreign countries and could have picked something up in the water to cause such high results
So, apparently it's pretty bad.
Here's my question: (And I know most everyone on this board believes that "breast is best" and so forth...so didn't I, but please put your opinions on that issue aside and tell me what you think we should do from a medical stand point.)
Dd's symptoms are getting worse. Her sleep is getting worse (I get 3-4 hours total per 24 hours). She is miserable, I am miserable.
Would it be beneficial for her to go on an elemental formula (Neocate, etc.) since I am dealing with this? THere's no telling if she has it too, right? Wouldn't the elemental formula allow her gut to heal if she does have leaky gut?
I'm at a loss here. I don't know what to do, but I do know what's happening now isn't working.
What should I be doing? I'm working with my ND on this one, but are there "leaky gut" specialists? The lab wants a stool sample too to rule out any bacteria, etc. as a possible source for my high levels on the LG test.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
I must go now and try to get dd to sleep again!
DS (6.06), DD (10.08), DD (05.11).
