Answer
Hi, Syed,

I'm sorry that I can't help you.  This is obviously a very complicated situation and I suspect there is much more going on here than just a lack of vitamin D.  It is impossible for me to give you any more advise than the specialists you are seeing are giving you.  I wish you and your son well.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
