    Hi torries01484

    Has your little one had any ultrsound or CT scans to check for anything going on in his digestive system and has he had a complete blood count and his vitamins checked.....if he is not eating he will be lacking essential vitamins also he will become dehydrated and lacking in electrolytes...all vitamins are essential and one in particular B12 and associated B12 vits....if deficient in these he will become very ill.....i would imagine your health provider would have done blood counts and vit checks...if not request to get them checked....I do feel for you and your son and I sincerely hope you can find an wishes...
