I am pretty certain that my 8 year old daughter is ADD. I am not sure about getting her tested because
of all the stress she has been under lately with the school testing her for pull out help. They are pulling her
out of class 2 times a week for 30 minutes (a joke) to help her with comprehension. My daugter has trouble
Paying attention, sitting still, staying on task, very insecure, no confidence and can never complete her
school work. She is very slow and really struggles with school. She has a brother (4 years old) with
autism. She has alot of bladder infections and took her to a childrens specialist and they said she has
a high count of calcium in her urine. We are limiting her calcium intake to 100 mg. a day. I wonder if
this is a sign of food allergies. She is such a special little girl but has a problem with weight gain (only in
her stomach). My speech therapist that works with my son is working with her now and trying to help her.
She thinks since my daughter is so sensitive that I should not do any more testing on her and she will
try to help her. Not sure if giving her the label (ADD) is the right thing.
I was wondering if anyone could give me advise on food allergies. Her brother is on a GF/CF diet and
is doing great on it (really has helped him). When I talk to her about this diet she cries and begs me to
please not make her do this diet. She loves dairy products (milk, icecream, cheese and cottage cheese).
Would love some advice if this calcium in her urine is a indicationg of possible food allergies.
