My 10 year old daughter has been having gas and loose stools when she eats ice cream after a big meal lately. Other milk products don't bother her. But rich cream soups also bother her lately.
Trying not to be an alarmist here, but with my history i am concerned. Will make an appt with the pediatrician ASAP on Monday.
But since it's Sunday I'm trying to get some info. Did a web search which mentions growth delays primarily as sign of Crohns.
I am wondering if any of you out there have a  child with Crohns or were diagnosed as a child, and what the symptoms were.

What your daughter is going thru sounds more like she is just lactose intolerant. That alone can cause the gas, and loose stools. I thought I was flaring recently and figured out later it was only lactose intolerance. I take Digestive Advantage lactose intolerance and it works well to keep it in check. JMHO!
