Answer
Hi, maha,

If he is having diarrhea and not gaining weight, he needs to see his doctor for a good history, a careful exam and perhaps some stool studies.  Please do this you can find out why he is having the diarrhea and do something to stop it and hopefully to help him gain weight.

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.
