Hi there, and welcome to healingwell. I am sorry to hear about
all that your poor son is dealing with, at such a young age.
I moved your post to give you one of your own...more members are likely to read a new post, than one tagged onto an old one.
You are working with a GI, so that is great. If you are uncomfortable with what he or she is saying, then I'd get a 2nd opinion. It is your sons life, you need to feel comfortable with the doctor he has.
Have you tried suppliments like pediacare, or pedialight. It is like Ensure for children, and it offers many vitamins needed in a daily diet. Also, make sure your son is on a vitamin, which I do believe you said he is.
Seriuosly though, if you are not feeling comfortable with what your current GI is doing, find another one.
I am happy you found us...stick with us, and let us know how he is doing...
Wishing you the best.
