Re: Requesting patient pictures for use in print

Hi, I wish I did but I deleted them all one day when I was really upset! I wish I hadn't, had a close up of everything for record!
Your research is interesting! Are you looking into the use of probiotics?

Re: Celiac Disease & Kawasaki Disease

What tests can I get done to check for gluten allergy?
I've asked doctors about this and probiotics and am sick of being told to take it easy!!!

Re: How early can KD come back

Hi! Kd leaves you shaken and expecting the worst! It has done so to us post April 2012!
I have a rule! Fever 3rd day and no other symptoms I go for a blood test! By day 4 it should get better of its a viral or some symptoms ( tummy/ear/ nose/throat/skin) should start to show!
I'm glad she is better!
