Unhappy 9 yr old with chron's-very distended stomach

I have a 9 year old daughter who was recently diagnosed with Chrohn's disease. She has always had a "pot-bellied" look to her and now I know part of the reason is she was malnourished due to the Chroh n's. But now her tummy looks even more distended. Any info or experience with Chrohn's would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 9 yr old with chron's-very distended stomach

Is she taking Prendisone now? If shes taking that to get her Crohns under control that tends to cause bloating.Due to fluid retention. Do a search for kids with crohns message boards there is a great one, that has alot of parents on their that have young children with Crohns. They are very helpfull. I can't tell you the message board as its not allowed.But if you do a search I'm sure you'll find it.
