u should tell about his weight & height. he is in school so there may be chance of infection in school.
is these motion started since birth or lateron. is motion started after started eating food. is there any association of motion with food or milk. go for stool test , one is routine microscopy & other culture for fungus & bacterial.
is ur son eat soul (picca). give albendazole 400mg 1 tab. for 1 night & reapet after 15 days.
if ur son is malnourished, there may be chance of coeliac disease. go for tTG IgA antibody to diagnose for celaic disease. consult with pediatrician

loose stools causes more death in children, home remedy itself can prevents death. give him plenty of water in the form of tender coconut, electral powder, sporolac sachets. if the baby is less active, not feeding well then taken to hospital.

Take to pediatrician, get a check done. Ask if the doc can prescribe Sporilac for him.

Does he drink milk many times in a day, this could be milk allergy. so get tested by a doctor before it goes worse. I think i know only about this

can using mirilax for 3 years due to chronic constipation in an autistic child now 10 lead to green stools? He has had green stools and turns water green for last 3 weeks, they are loose and he is more tired than usual. Or is it more likely gluten intolerance or something else?

My blood work showed signs of sprue, but my biopsy came back negative for Celiac Disease... I was told that this means I still have a gluten sensitivity so I've been on a gluten free diet since March. I felt wonderful up until a few weeks ago when my intestinal pains returned. My doctor now has me taking fiber as well and I'm not so sure any of this makes sense. They feel exactly like the pains I was experiencing before, so how can they have two different causes? And is there a chance that I don't have a gluten sensitivity after all?

Hi, my granddaughter, 26 months old, was diagnosed a with celiac disease a week ago. Her primary symptom that I am concerned about is her vomiting which has been happening on the average of 2 to 3 times a day for the last 3 to 4 weeks. We started her on a gluten free diet since four days ago. She is still vomiting, just once today, her behavior has been less irritable. I know it takes time for this gluten free diet to clean the system. I am concerned, could this be something else? Something more serious that we should be looking at? Her doctor said to verify that this is the actual diagnose we would need to get a biopsy of her small intestine. My daughter is calling her doctor tomorrow to try and schedule one ASAP. She also has been having bouts of ear infections, doctor at first that her vomiting might be happening because of the ear infection, but did further lab work and found in her blood test that she had a high count of (I m not sure about this) but I think it was PTT count??? She is scheduled to have tubes in her ear in about a month. Nevertheless, I am so scared that this could be worst than celiac disease. I understand that this disease is manageable, but it doesn t seem like it is working fast enough. Does it take some time for her gluten-free diet to work. Will her vomiting lessen. I appreciate any information you can give me to put my mind at ease. Thank you, JM
