Question Need GI info

For the last 13 years my son has suffered from unexplained rectal bleeding and leakage of stool. This started when he was 3 months old and still exclusively breastfeeding. He has had every test imaginable, but no diagnosis. He tested positive once for ulcerative colitis, but a second and third colonoscopy discounted the one positive test. He has no allergic inflammation in his bowel despite having food allergies to soy, corn, and dairy products. We are at a loss as to why he is having this problem. Also, he has no GI pain. Anyone with an idea? Thanks

Re: Need GI info

Thanks for the reply. We've been to more GI docs than I can count. His stools are never the same consistency . Usually more soft and runny than anything else.

Did they check for celiac diseases? This is allergy to gluten and wheat? They can run a celiac panel on your son. If not done I would push for it.
