Madison woke up early the next day and went to the doctor with her mom.
Just then, the doctor, Ms. Katie came into the room holding a folder and a pencil. “Hi Madison!” she said, “How are you?” “Pretty good,” Madison said. Ms. Katie gave Madison her check up. She checked her heartbeat and her eyes, mouth and nose. “Is there anything else you want to tell me, or ask?” Ms. Katie said when it was almost time to go. “Well, I’ve been having problems with my stomach. It hurts all of the time and I have bumps on my knees and elbows that itch a lot.” Madison explained. Ms. Katie turned to Madison’s mom. “Do you have any idea what could be wrong?” Her mom thought for a moment. “I was thinking that it might be problems with wheat, or another food.”
Ms. Katie almost laughed. “Problems with wheat is only found in one in 133 people. I highly doubt that is your problem. If she had Celiac disease, caused by wheat, she would be dead as a baby.” Madison’s mother frowned. Ms. Katie continued, “Her problems are probably causes by anxiety. When her stomach is hurting, give her some Pepto Bismo to help it.”
