Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

yes a chemical imbalance can cause these issues

a hormone imbalance can cause these issues.

she needs to see a pediatric endocrinologist to get her hormone levels checked.

she needs her estrogen and pituitary hormones of LH and FSH and TSH levels checked.

it sounds like you are very concerned.

but it sounds like she has seen doctors and gotten some testing already.

she should not be having stool incontinence.

she needs to be changed if she has stool in her pants.

let me know if you have other questions.
