Yesterday was Ks metabolic appt. The great metabolic appt we kept hoping would give us answers. Sigh. No real answers yet other than the metabolic docs think likely no, no metabolic issues. They suggested genetics and a good allergist. The geneticist one b/c she has some features that may them do the huh and stare at her for a while. Apparently she has dysmorphic features (flat nose? I'll attach a pic)and when combined with the failure to thrive lead them to think genetics. I actually am starting to wonder if its just a circle jerk, sorry, we have no answers for you, here's the next specialist.

So next up is a microarray blood test and another round of allergists and nutritionists. I had a few minutes of annoyance when talking about her allergies, lots of are they real allergies, who diagnosed them sort of crap til I pulled out her epi-pen. Anyway, they think we may still have undiagnosed allergies behind the slow weight gain. Microarray takes 6 weeks and I'm going to try and put it out of my mind til then, I tried googling dysmorphic features and it was overwhelming so I'm going to let it go for now.

I keep reminding myself, head of metabolics said likely not a metabolic issue so that is good news.
