We just got results back from stool/saliva test. Dd5 has been physically sliding for the few months and the new ND thought it was worth exploring food intolerances. The results are in, and I'm surprised... Negative an all food intolerances Yeast - heavy growth Enterococcus avium - heavy growth Intestinal SIgA - 16. Reference normal 400-880 No other parasites/ova All other panels negative Thoughts are that the enterococcus avium has taken over her gut, leading to further yeast overgrowth and very low SIgA levels. Suggested abx ASAP to clear it out, and IV nutrition to get her strength up as she tires after about an hour of play. but when we met with ped (the main stream is where we get the abx from), he scoffed at results and stated "we need to think scientifically". He asked if she has diarrhea - she doesn't, but has ongoing stomach pain, grey skin, dark circles, and even after eating 2500 calories a day for three weeks, has lost a pound (she only weighs 30 lbs). When I asked him his response was - if she doesn't have diarrhea, then she's fine - give her more boost, she needs more calories... WTH - she eats nonstop.... I need some experience from the board - has anyone dealt with this avium thing. Is it the root, or because she has no diarrhea, we can move on? I asked him to test for the avium in mainstream - blood and rectal swab would do it, but once he heard ND, he glazed over, referenced hocky science, then focused on more calories. Another up and down day...
