wendybird Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 I am at a loss about my 7 year old son. I am going to include as many of the details as I can in the hope that this makes sense to someone, because we see a different Dr.each time we go in and this is not helping. He is off the chart in height. He is over the 100% for a 10 year old in height(he is 7). He has always been tall, his father is 6'4,his brothers are all tall. He is taller than any of them were at his age by a lot. He is in the 45% for weight, which is down %30 in the past year. He eats non stop. I have teens, I have big kids who eat a lot...this is extreme. He is always hungry. He has dairy/soy allergies and is limited to mainly fruits,veggies,meat, my homemade breads,a few brands of chips, and one brand of graham cracker.He eats one bunch of bananas a day, a bag of apples, three or more oranges, an avacado, half a loaf of bread, adult serving of meat, as many crackers as I will give him(usually three a day), half a bag of chips. He will eat three plates of pasta. His ribs and clavicles are showing. A couple months ago he woke up confused, had wet the bed(never had before), was semi hysterical saying his belly hurt. I took him to urgent care the next morning thinking he had a UTI. His culture came back clear but the Dr asked how his diabetes was when she came in the room. I looked quizical, she said hi protein in his urine was through the roof. I had his regular dr test his blood and she said it was fine. I had a couple at church do a fasting finger prick and it was 100(good). He holds his arms in to his stomach like his bones hurt. He falls asleep randomly and anywhere. He occasionally sleepwalks and while he hasn't wet the bed again he doesn't always make it to the toilet. It seems so much like diabetes,right? Am I missing something else? They tested his thyroid and never said anything about it(they called to give me his allergy test results done at the same time). I am very worried about him. The bleeding rashes from his allergies are still popping up,despite elimanating and avoiding cross contamination. I just want him to feel better! Thank you for any help.
