Does anyone know of any online resources for failure to thrive or growth disorder in infants?

on dietary supplements even (a soy "pediasure" due to diarreah/vomiting with milk products. He was breastfed as a young infant so we didn't know about the milk allergy until after he was one). He's been tested for cystic fibrosis and some other things with his thyroid. Those were negative but it did show that he had some sort of anemia. I'm looking for some scholastic resources that I can pass along to his doctor in the hopes that we can get him into a normal weight range. Thank you in advance for your help....


Pets and Thyroid

My 15 mo. old son's soft spot is still there and his head is in the 95 percent. Something wrong?

e is active but he doesn't walk well yet. 5 steps before he goes to crawl. We were in a small room for the last 7 months and he just didnt get much opportunity to practice walking. Now have a 2 br place and he has his own room and loves to walk holding one hand or grabbing things as he goes. This new doctor is asking for thyroid blood test and possible a cat scan while he is sedated. Everything I've read said it can take up to 2 years for a soft spot to close and no doctor has mentioned any sort of concern at any prior check up. Ill get the blood test but am scared to have him sedated w/radiation exposure just because the new doctor walks in and expresses concern. Is it ok to wait it out a while longer to see his walking get better and soft spot close more or is it all of a sudden urgent?...

I have a 10-YO Chow, Shar-pei, Lab, Akita mix, she's very territorial and jealous when it comes to me. Help!

only when we are not at home. When I do have company, she'll go after their feet. She'll back off when I squirt her w/ a watter bottle, but she's got a very intimidating growl and bark. This has caused a huge strain on my relationship of only 10 months. She hates him!! I've told him that she just needs to get use to him. He doesn't buy that. He won't admit it, but he's obviously affraid of her and I can't blame him for that. He knows that she's not going anywhere, but I need to know how to help them get along.

I have low thyroid but when I take levothroxl .75mg, like?

rvous breakdown and the doctors do not understand why? I can't handle it. But they tell me if I stay trying to live with low thyroid the rest of my life it will cause more problems than you can imagine. My T4 is 0.87 and my TSH is 12.6. Looks to me like they need to check my T3 also before putting me on any kind of medication. does anyone have any suggestions? At my witts in. My mother had low thyroid, my daughter has it so it, so it seems to be hereditary. My daughter has it so bad she looses her hair if she doesn't take her medicine, but the medicine doesn't bother her, what bothers her is if she doesn't take it....
