Thanks very much - i have had a look at both sites and they both look helpful.
I hope he is diagnosed soon as he is feeling really down at the minute.
Hello and welcome to Healing Well and the A & P forum. You will meet many warm and caring members here with a wealth of information. I am sorry your son is ill and I am sure you are very worried about him as you have every right to be.
You might also request a consult with a nutritionist as he is young and still growing. He needs his nutrients and it would be helpful to sit down and talk face to face with someone so you could ask questions.
Stay with us and keep posting. Again a warm welcome.
So sorry to hear about your son. My son was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 2 years ago when he was 11. I have found this site and the Dragonpack site to be extremely helpful.
When my son was first diagnosed, his GI suggested that I give him Pediasure (found in the baby aisle) and Carnation Instant Breakfast. It won't help with his lack of appetite, but at least he will get some vitamins into him.
I hope you get some answers soon so they can start working on making your son feel better.
