My gorgeous 9yr old daughter is obese and she seems to be getting bigger she is now a size 16. I have been trying to get a diagnosis since she was 4 but have not been taken serious by doctors who make me feel like a bad mother and the cause of her problem. I don't need a dietician I need help before she gets any bigger.
Here are her symptoms can someone please help me or advice me:
Fat is all over but mainly around the middle with a huge tummy.
Her poos always float and have done for 6 years.
She has hairy legs b.o and now boobs forming.
She gets tummy pains and headaches.
She has thin skin her capillaries can be seen clearly, she bruises easily and has a lot of nose bleeds.
High anxiety always moving her legs picking her scabs if has any making it bleed again.
She also has a fear of needles which is making it impossible to get diagnosis of certain illnesses. We are seeing a pediatrician soon to help with all of this. She is having ursine and poo tests done now.
I cant bare it, I feel like she will die soon if I don't get a diagnosis.
Please please please someone help me.
