I am in south Sydney, if you know a good paed around here I would appreciate any recommendations!
re. the gluten, wouldn't the blood test have shown an intolerance to that? They tested for coeliacs already.
And thanks so much for the tip with the funded dietitian! I will have to speak to the GP about that!

Blood tests don't really say much about intolerances. I could be wrong but I think coeliacs is an immune issue and intolerances are digestive? Could be wrong on that.
A stool sample is a better test (check for blood cells in the stool which suggest an irritation in the bowel).
It's actually really rare to have a true lactose intolerance, it's much more likely to be a protein intolerance. The two are easily mixed up.
The paed we see is in norwest and chatswood so probably a bit far for you. He's one of the consultants at the children's hospital in Westmead.

Hmmm... ok, thanks so much Cue and Gothel. This is all sounding much more involved than I thought it would be.
But I've been at doctors for DD's symptoms for soooo long and they're just not really being that helpful, hence why I have started looking into things myself.
The new paed is on the 9th, so about 2 weeks away. Gosh that sounds so long. I'm just over it.
Can a GP do that hydrogen breath test?
I will also ask the paed straight up about possible food intolerances and a dietitian. He also needs to fix up her asthma meds. And I am going to ask for another xray to see how the constipation is going. No more pussy-footing around for this mumma! I'm sick of it!
