Trust your instincts on the stomach issues. My son had unexplained bouts of diarrhea and constipation and it was our DAN! dr who diagnosed leaky gut. Tests revealed vitamin and mineral deficiencies (despite a healthy diet!) and a sensitivity to milk (casein) which meant he couldn't digest it. His stool test revealed overgrowths of strep and staph and virtually no E.coli where it should be in abundance. We started on supps, probiotics, and a gut healing diet - steadily eliminating those things known to inflame the gut - milk products (casein),gluten, soy, corn, most grains, and potatoes. We eat plenty of meat, fish and vegetables, pulses, gluten free bread, GF/CF chocolate biscuits etc. DS18 knows it helps and he's doing really well - my skinny teenager has actually put on some weight at last! Whoohoo! So we're not going off the diet any time soon. It's not as hard as you might think.
