It's been a week now my daughter first had a fever then threw up and had diarreah after 2 days of that her poop has turned white and she has alot of gas and cramping that is on and off. some one have any info on this . I looked up the white poop thing on line and it said stuff about the liver. I took her to the doctor last night and he felt around on her stomach and said she looked fine to him and if her poop is still white after 2 more days then bring her in for blood test. I feel he was trying to get us out of there we were the last to be seen. Very frustrated and scared can't pay endless amounts of copays just to go back again and being sent home i should of demanded the bloodtest. but does anyone else have this or had this? Sad

My daughter had this white poop thing w/o cramps or fever. I just ramdomly saw the poop when she forgot to flush. Who knows how long it's been. I went to the doctor and told him about it. I told him her diet is not the best too. He asked like it was a common thing. She is a picky eater. No veggies to speak of. He said the veggie thing was most likely it but, he did blood tests to be sure. He did a ferritin test which was low. I guess it tests for how your body converts the iron you eat into use for your blood cells. He ordered a CBC, complete blood count, and something else. I'm still waiting on results. I'll let you know what I find out. In the meantime if I were you I'd either go to the ER if she's in pain, because they will do everything with the results right there or make an appointment to see the doc and ask for what kind of bloodwork he/she would suggest.
