What was it like before coming to see us?
My daughter was “small for her age,” everyone commented on how tiny she was for a two year old. I just thought she was going to be a small person overall, I never thought it was an issue. Her doctor even said, if she’s always been small there’s no need to worry. But it seemed she stopped growing at 12 months and just hasn’t gained height or weight for about a year! Another thing was how sweaty she got when she was sleeping. It was profuse! Again, her doctor wasn’t worried- “all kids sweat.” But I could feel something wasn’t right. Most concerning were her toenails- they were frail and brittle, always breaking from the day she was born! It caused her pain and I needed a lasting solution. Lastly, she had little bumps all over her torso- not pimples and not hives, they never seemed to bother her but they bothered me. I knew it had to mean she was eating something that was bothering her but I couldn’t figure out what!
