I was worried that Johna had celiac disease because when her pediatrician had lab work done the celiac panel came back and it concerned him. So he rushed us to see a GI in Ohio. Turns out that doctor does not think she has it. The pediatrician checked like four different things and 3 of them came back normal and only one came back positive. So the GI said we can't rule celiac disease out completely but it is unlikely. That is great news! That means we do not have to switch over to the GF/CF diet (gluten free / casein free). The Ohio doctor thinks she has IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). So she is going to start a new medication and he said let her eat plenty of yogurt that has live bacteria in it. So as far as I am concerned it was not horrible news... not fantabulous news either though because I know IBS can be a pain too. So prayers & good thoughts for my precious angel.
