    A differential diagnosis includes a bile duct obstruction or acute pancreatitis.

    Please let us know what you find out after the U/S. I hope your daughter feels better soon!

    I had similar symptoms at the very beginning of this year. Ultrasound showed nothing. Then doctor suggested a HIDA scan and came back at 28% infraction (or something like that lol) but I meet with a surgeon Friday...gallbladder will have to come out probably.

    Very strange to see it in kids and teenagers but it's happened. Does it hurt after she eats?

    Ultrasound showed swollen groin lymph node!

    She is already feeling better but NOW her bgs are elevated, I swear I can never figure these things out. Feels horrid but bgs good/ok, then feeling better and bgs get stuck in th 200 s no matter how much insulin I throw at her.

    I am glad we did the ultrasound, I was starting to think she was playing the sick card for a little too long, can not fake something like that, also confirmed constipation.

    Not sure if this all explains the pale color? Or just the bug she was fighting off ?

    Happy to hear your McKenna is feeling better! Hopefully her BGs will soon follow suit.

    How's your Madison doing with her new dx?

    Take care!

    Madison is doing great, no insulin yet but having her go to th clinic to get her afternoon snack, just to get her and her class used to the concept. Talked to her class about the CGM and little about D, so far so good.

    When was her last celiac panel? This sounds EXACTLY like my daughter before her celiac diagnosis. Though constipation is a less classic symptom than the opposite, the pale color is indeed classic. She also had significant cramping and discomfort.

    A full year ago. I don't think it is celiac, her bg goes up pretty quickly so seems to be absorbing ok.

    thankfully she made it our 4 hour car trip today without issue but after the pool, had diarrhea twice and it was stinky, but color was more normal.TMI I am so sorry!

    I have the lab slip and we will do the blood work as soon as I can figure out a fasting day.
