Hi,

in one of above posts, you mentioned:
QUOTE:
"...SECOND  it start after i have ....a swell on my sphencter on the left side of my anus after aweek it burst and it had a  yellow fluid with  blood "

This was abscess - a collection of pus, which occurs either in chronoc infection or in inflammation of large bowel.

You need:
1. Stool culture test - to find microbes
and possibly
2. Colonoscopy which can show, what actually is with your colon.

If infection wil be found, you'll need antibiotics, and if inflammation will be found, you'll need anti-inflammatory drugs. Remedies will not be enough in either case.
I'm not saying you have infection or inflammation, but, that abscess (even if it is already healed now) speaks strongly for this.

Gas comes from bacteria.

Hey Boron,
Would his abscess from eight years ago still be creating a bacteria problem?  Maybe I misunderstood Minte.  I told him right up front he needed to visit a doc, to see if he had a medical problem, and he came back with the eight years thing and that he had seen a gastroenterologist.  I don't want to be giving out bad info, if an infection can go on for years.  Also, do probiotics help infections, or are there a raft of bacteria that can only be treated with antibiotics?  Thanks.

I believe that an abscess occurs only in some serious intestinal disease, like in inflammatory bowel disease - IBD (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis), or in heavy infection. If abscess has gone, this doesn't mean that inflammation in the colon has gone. Abscess is only a complication of an inflammation and it usually resolves by itself, if you treat it or not. So, my suspiction is, that there may be either IBD, or recurrent infection which is often in diverticulosis.

By the time, minte was at GI, there was no abscess. I also assume, colonoscopy was not done; colonic inflammation can not be determined "from the outside".

Bacteria from probiotics don't kill pathogenic bacteria, but they compete with them for nutrients and binding places in intestinal wall. According to some online resources, probiotics were proved to be helpful ONLY in:
1. some bacterial infections due to food poisoning,
2. antibiotic associated diarrhea (e.g. due to C-diff or Candida albicans overgrowth).

From what I've read, probiotics don't help in IBS and in Crohn's disease.

Probiotics are of help only, if they
- contain LIVE cultures of Lactobacillus GG (not sure about L. acidophilus), Bifidobacterium bifidum, or Saccharomices boullardii in SUFFICIENT amount.

I don't want to advertise here, but most (not all) of commercial probiotics (usually yogurts) are not helpful, mostly because they either contain dead bacteria or live bacteria in amount not sufficient to survive travel through the acidic stomach.

It was proved that probiotics have strong PLACEBO effect, meaning that people only think that probiotics helped them. In one trial they gave them an usual meal, looking like probiotic, and...it helped them also (it shortened the diarrhea)...

Probiotics are ment to supplement missing normal bacteria. They are like, let's say, iron, which helps only in iron deficiency and not if you have enough of iron.

FOUL SMELLING gas is produced in:

- overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, like Clostridium difficile, there is a typical BARNYARD SMELL
- malabsorption; nutrients which are not absorbed in the small intestine, comes in the colon, where bacteria digest them and produce foul smelling gas
- high protein diet (meat, cheese, eggs, beans...)...when bacteria break down proteins, AMMONIUM is produced
- some spices

PASSING gas may be due to sphincter incompetence. Despite doctor said, sphincter is OK, I still doubt in this. Passing gas 10 times in an hour is either due to LOT of gas or sphincter incompetence.

What to do:

1. Have a LOW-PROTEIN diet trial. Exclude as much proteins as you can from the diet for at least 3-4 days, and see if gas will improve or at least the smell will go away.

2. Have a LOW-FAT diet trial. Exclude all fats: meat, all dairy products, egg yolk, olives, oil, and nuts for 3-4 days.

2. Have LOW-FIBER diet trial. No fruits, vegetables, bread and other cereals at all for 3-4 days.  

Have one diet trial at the time. This may help in diagnosis.

Boron,
Thank you so much, Boron, for taking the time to give me more info.  It will help me a lot when I go about giving people natural ideas for their bowel problems.

Minte,
Please also visit a doctor again and ask them to do a stool sample and draw some blood, to see if you have an infection that can be treated, even if they have done this before, just in case.

Low carb foods are those who contain only few or no carbohydrates.

No (or very low) carbohydrates: meat, fish, eggs.
Low carbohydrates: rice, soy.

But you will find this easier to understand if you just AVOID anything with simple SUGARS: table sugar, sweets, milk, fruits and fruit juices...and STARCH: potatoes, pasta, anything from wheat.

Intestinal bacteria (normal ones) or candida (yeast, mold) eat these simple sugars and produce gas. So, if after low-carb diet, your gas will reduce, it means you have bacteria (or candida) overgrowth in the intestine.

Candida diet (which is low-carb diet):
http://www.allhealthsite.com/40/intestinal-candida-overgrowth/#candida-diet
Even more detailed low-carb diet:
http://www.wholeapproach.com/diet/WholeApproach_Food_List.pdf

You do all these diet tests ONE AFTER ONE, so you reduce ONLY proteins for 3-4 days, then ONLY fats for next 3 days (meaning you can have proteins again)...and so on.

But can you answer this:

- Would you say you have any other symptom beside gas? Diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramping, nausea...? Most of us occasionally have these symptoms, but is there something what you would describe as a "problem"?
- Would you say you have loose stools and what is the color of the stool - brown, black, pale, green, any mucus or blood, and does the stool FLOATS, or does it sticks to the toilet?

hi boron

thank you very much you and ggreg let me go one step i know some thing but knowing it is not a solution if you do not use it , i read  about  the ditet  bfor but i think I didn’t use it properly thank you for you guys as I mentioned I started it  .

i ate only rice cooked alone; I used only water and salt. I didn’t start with reducing the food that i expect to produce much gas but started with the food i expect to pro duce little gas. and add another one. like that

the result is very very good , i do not have much gas as usual  it  was very low at first  and  increased  little gradually now it  is  good but still have  the gas  .

from yesterday until now I don’t have stool i think it is the second day but there is nothing i do not feel to go to the toilet.  i thought it is because rice is very low in fiber.

now i plan to add tomato we will see what the result bring

boron

before every thing started i exprinced a dried lips and it craked but it generate and replace the alled one .I had still have but improved through time if it is help full

at the beginning when the problem starts I had constipation with mucus and my stool was brown but it improved. some times when I see my stool now it has brown on the beginning, the rest is normal.i dont see mucus on it usually now.
it also has a bubble on it when it is wait it is very clear, when I moved some part of it is not compact, it has a tiny holes part.  

I didn’t experienced loosing stool

our toilet does not have water it has only a hole and it goes to deep you cant see any thing unless it is full.

Congrats to your decision to start with foods you expect will not produce gas. Rice should contain fibers, but it depends how "polished" the rice is. Tomato may be a good decision to prevent constipation.

Bubbles in the stool. Is it possible you investigate this a little more? Bubbles may be from excessive FAT in the stool. FATTY STOOL would be WHITISH and GREASY and would STICK to the walls of a container - if you can try this. On the other hand, if you eat only rice, there should not be a lot of fat in the stool...
...SO, at this point it is important, if you can find out IS IT FAT OR NOT.  

If it IS fat, you have FAT MALABSORPTION, and
if it is NOT fat, than the bubbles come from gas from BACTERIA (normal or harmful ones).

Thank you for staying with me.  Like i said before I didn’t have stool for 3 days after i  started the diet . at the third day i had little stool come and after few hours  a lot and it was normal tool  it wasn’t hard to pas , and it has little spot on it  like o shape on some part of it . i think it is where the gas produce and released .for the first 2  days i had very little gas that increased after I  ate tomato it increased much.

boron does it normal to a person to have a stool after 3  days ?  
And it was difficult to eat rice alone for me
i planed to add some palm oil on it . and to exclude tomato.


Thank you boron

Hey,
you should write all this in the dairy. Only if you think you can remember all.
Tomato...out...logically.
Try with oil, this can be a good test to confirm/exclude fat malabsorptin (I hope not).
Rice...it was your decision. Since it does not produce gas, just continue, and add other foods by your intuition. You may add some bread, and put margarine or so on it for small meals and continue with rice at other meals. Passing stools every three days is still considered as normal. I recommend you do only one change a day, to see effects of each particular food.

I really confused. I am really disparate the last two weeks after i started this post and the diet I thought i found a solution but every thing turns back on me .

When I started the diet with rice it was fine the first day and increased the gas gradually
i change some diet i could find but all the same very thing become gas producer . i   really don’t know what to do .  Writing what I am in doesn’t show what it feels like smelling like bad fish. I don’t know why all this happen to me. I didn’t do any thing bad why me even i was just 19 years old boy believe in god, love my family and friend, good at school.  There are plenty of bad people out there walking free

i am sorry it is because I don’t know  why this happened

Very interesting infomation about the smell from rectum. I had many years. worst by year by year. I consulted many doctors . They gave many medicines for go to toilet, then I took lot fibre drink. But I do not have complete remedy to solve the problem. How ever, I think that it is related to sleep. when I started to wake up early morning and went to work with empty stomach, the problem was strated slightly, then it was worsed year  by year. GP or Doctors do not care about it too much because it is not life threatening disease, but people put fingers their nose if I am around them ,even my relatives.
I live in London, UK. If anybody could hekp me, many thanks. How ever, I have high blood pressure and diabetes type 2 and take medicines

I think you have incontinence for gas. If you are not bloated (no distended abdomen), then it doesn't sound normal, why you can't controll gas.

Now, the smell: I believe that animal food (meat, eggs) may cause it, or non-absorbed fat, or bacteria.

Pappu, which medicines are you currently taking?

Non-absorbed fat, well, first you have to have a stool fat test. If positive, than the cause has to be found. Even if you ingest a lot of fat/oil (which is hm, hm...), a healthy intestine should absorb it all. Reasons for fat malabsorption are: intestinal inflammation, gallbladder, liver or pancreatic disease. Investigations usually start with ultrasound of abdomen to check for gallstones, pancreatitis and enlarged liver.

Thanks boron for your reply, I take medicines to control high blood pressure(partialy, due to streesful life) and diabetes(sugar in blood). Now, I do not take sugar ,but my brain needs sugar if work actively. I am telling this with my experience.
Any way, I was checked with ultrasound of abdomen,blood tests, colonscorpy,test of stool by advise of particular specialists, but they found nothing. three months ago, they found increased ALT in blood, they checked liver also, they said that it is ok. I think that increased ALT n blood due to taking too much medicines.
Next week(!1st July  ), I am going to see Prof in stomach, liver, colon,bowels at St Mary's Hosptial, part of Imperial College, Unversity of London as out patient. Already, I knew that nothing wrong with liver when I was checked with ultrasound of liver last month by a staff of St Mary's Hospital.
Even, I have blood pressure, and diabetes type 2, I do not worry too much about them, but I need to live normal life without stink from rectum, but nobody knew answer for me. I do not know what to do? It will be as part of my life as stink from rectum even grew up person .
I am not alone, Oh yes

Can you determine the exact smell of the gas? Like: barnyard smell, rotten eggs, ammonium...

We all produce some gas, but most of us can controll it's passing. So, the question is why can't you controll your anal sphincter. The most often cause are probably internal hemorrhoids. Then obesity. Decreased sphincter tonus due to nerve damage. A small scar from healed anal abscess...

Would you say you are BLOATED (distended abdomen)?

Thanks boron for your sensible reply.
Well,  I can't smell myself  my stink, but I can feel some irriation always at anus if sit chair front of computer or travel at public transport while others said  as strange stink  and opened widows of buliding or buses.
I have also doubt about nerve damage around rectum because intense of smell is increased if not slept properly or ny body so tired.
How ever, I am not bloated, some tmes, My tommy as pregrant woman, I think that because of do drink beer( I do not drink sprits such as whisky) before dinner . I am not heavy drinker. I am not obesity than slighty big tommy. right wight as 71 kg while height as 5 feet 11 inches.
I do not understand what means a small scar from healed anal abscess, please explain more.

About a small scar..I'm just listing possibilites. If you ever had a suppurative boil or other inflammation in the anal area, then this can leave a scar - just like after a larger skin wound. Such a scar could pull the muscle if anal sphincter toward one side and would cause incontinence for gas.

So you ARE bloated (as pregnant woman)? Beer contains maltose, which is broken down by bacteria which produce a lot of gas. Make a test. Don't drink beer for a week, and  you'll see if it helps. You obviously a lot of (normal) bacteria in the gut, and beer is a good food for them.

hi

it is realy to have you here . the wholl idea is that normally we digest foods that we  eat.  the undigested  feed to non harm full bacteria this bacteria ( some of them) produce gas from  it .

this undigested food reached the intestinal trak because our body canot digest some carbohydrate  such as alpha galactose.  according to some web site our body may canot produce some enzyme that are usefull for our digestion .

this digetive enzymes may be produced artificially and sold out as counter medicin    like beano ,digestive sdvantage ,sawnson digestive enzyme ther are alot out there.
what hinder me to geet them is there are no such medicin here in ethiopia  and i cnot buy them on the web because the government policy doesnot suport on line market .in fact this is like luxury to have such medicin more than 3 million people live with HIV.that is why ireally need some one sympaty to get it


Bean-zyme Anti-Gas Digestive Aid, 100 Tablets, Food Enzyme Dietary Supplement, ONLY $1.25 Shipping per Bottle, Buy 5 Bottles SHIPPING IS FREE!

There are three levels of a problem here:

1. GAS. Gas may be from inactivity, beeing slow, not moving around, not making decisions...all this affect peristalsis, which also becomes slow, and gas builds in the intestine.
2. Gas INCONTINENCE. A healthy person should be able to controll gas. Hemorrhoids are common reason for gas incontinence, then adhesions or scars in anal area, and weak muscles of the pelvic floor.
3. Gas SMELL. It can be from certain food.

Being active, checking for gas incontinence (with investigation, not only by doctor's finger in the office), and excluding certain foods - these are three levels of the solution.

1. ACTIVITY. This means beeing in the "active mood", have a goal, have plans, have relationships, have a job which have a sense and bring joy. Not allowing that depression puts you down. Following wishes. I can persoinally confirm, that joyfull and hopefull feelings put the gut in the right order in minutes, in hours or in days.

2. Scar in the anus is possible. Not necessary that it can be seen from the gut side, so I think that an investigation to check a gas continence should be make. If incontinence will be confirmed, it may be repaired by a minor operation which would release the fibrous tissue.

3. If I get you right, if you exclude proteins, your gas has no bad smell.

4. You probably already have all enzymes. Artificial enzymes are needed only when body don't produce enzymes in sufficient amount, mainly due to pancreatic disease.

Beano website is a commercial site. They want to sell things. I personally don't believe Beano is solution for you. You noticed improvement with your diet trial. That suppurative boil you had maybe left a scar which makes you gas incontinent. You've said your problem started just then. I suggest you get involved in something, something you wish. It's all in your hands and in doctor's hands - if the procedure will be needed.

To be honest, I've read some Beano clinical tests, and it was said to be helpful in reducing gas. But Beano helps only with gas which is a product of carbohydrates and NOT proteins. So, it helps in odorless gas.

Thank you for reply,
Two years ago,after read some of article about Gas INCONTINENCE, I  apporached distict nurse for incontinence. She asked me to see her every month and asked some excerise to improve weak muscles of the pelvic floor as put small rod into anus and took in and out by pelvic muscles while recording curves of strength of pelvic muscles in computer . That time, I thought that anal s£X would help to improve pelvic muscles. Any way, The nurse (West Indian Lady) had 35 years experience in the profession, did not have basic knowledge medicine, after few appointments, she did not know how to help me, and  said that to see specialist.  Any way, I do not know that  Hemorrhoids are in my colon ,if they were, they (doctors) might tell me.

Dear Minte (and some of this is for Pappu also),
I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to your messages you've been sending to me, Minte.  A lot is going on around here.  But I have some ideas I'm working on for you, and will post them in full later.  

I do have time, however, to say a couple things.  If you're missing a digestive enzyme, Minte, then a physician needs to determine how come your chemistry is goofed up, and get to the bottom of the situation and help you permanently.  Beano is just a bandaid.  You would be better off taking an alka seltzer.  And don't drink all this anti-diarrhea bottle stuff you mentioned early on.  You would be better off eating whole wheat bread.  Also, you said your gas smelled like fish, so do an internet google search for that particular odor as a health issue, and see what comes up.  

I also wanted to mention quickly that alcoholism can cause a bunch of B vitamin and mineral deficiencies, which can in turn give a person terrible gas.  In one of your very first posts, Minte, you mentioned you had cracks in the corners of your mouth, which is a sign of vitamin and mineral deficiency.  So, as a quick fix, I would recommend that if you are drinking (which Pappu said he was), that you stop drinking and find something else you like to do.  If you need to, get addicted to TV and chocolate, or video games (not a good idea), just whatever it takes to keep you off the streets, IF this is your problem.  Your motivation is to stop smelling.  In addition, find a reputable vitamin and mineral supplement and take those pills three times a week.  Also, you could benefit from "probiotics," which you can get by drinking Acidophilus milk or yogurt that has "live cultures" on the label, both of which are in grocery stores, and if it's not in yours, try looking in the "American" section of a large store in your area, or go to a "Natural Food Store," assuming you have something like that somewhere near where you live.

I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can with more info and to answer any more questions.

If you would have one of the major digestive enzyme deficiency, you'd gave constant diarrhea, so I doubt you have this.

I've read beano site. Beano contains enzymes which can help to digest ONLY some carbohydrates, but they explicitely say this WOULD NOT help to remove SMELLY GAS, since smelly gas comes from proteins containing sulphur.

The problem in your case is actually EXCESS enzymes (they are in bacteria you have).

Wow, I went to see Professor in Liver and stomach, today. He said that nothing wrong with my liver, but Level of ALT is ok now, but little bit high than normal level, keep on eye on ALT level, I did blood test again. Then, I asked about smell from gut and told him as boron( forum member) told me to treat too many normal bacteria at gut. Then, I asked him as " Will you suggest any antibiotic tablet". He said that he is not expert in the field(Smell and bacteria), but, he will not suggest antibiotic tablets, if kill normal bacteria, other harmful bacteria will grow into gut, and it will be ended life threatening illness. So, I asked him , what's solution for smell from gut. No anwser. I thought that that time, I wanted to kill him. I took my time to see him as Professor in Medicine, He could not help me, but I did not kill him. It was against Law

hi

papu 1

i read on the web that after treating the bacteria with antibiotics they take yougurt and some tablet that contain a coted protection not to be destroyed by digestive acicd in the stomuch to rehabitate the usefull bacteria . please  ask this if it maye help. and google on ibs forums . sorry idont remembr the web adress where i asw it. may God be with .you .

boron

I really dont think i have exxess enzyme do you think that  bacteria produce enzymes  
if i have it i wish it  to be in the small intestine because that is where most of th nutrient absorbed  to the body after that no enzyme is usefull for human i think it is wher the gas come from digesting the undigested food and produce gas .  so if ihave ecxes enzyme it should be in th small intestine

also some people take lactese enzyme which is very effective on lactose intolerance people they have exeses gas too and it is said to be very effective

i printe out  the food listed on th web you gave me and i will definitely try  it


     thank you boron

From my current knowledge, smelly gas may be from these reasons:

1. smell of rotten eggs: bacteria which can break down some sulphate molecules in proteins. Solution: Avoiding sulphur-rich foods:
http://www.canarys-eye-view.org/challenges/food/sulfurfoods.html

2. barnyard smell: Clostridium difficile overgrowth, which often occurs after antibiotic treatment. Solution: Treatment with another antibiotics and probiotics, as prescribed.

3. sharp smell from unabsorbed fats. Diagnosis: Stool fat test, and tests tob find the cause of malabsorption. Temporary solution: low-fat diet.

I guess that other causes may be: spicy food (oh, yes) and certain other high-fibre food, parasites, unabsorbed bile, diverticulitis, suppurative lesions in anal area (abscess, fistula...), advanced cancer.

In an otherwise healthy person, some "wrong" food, and the 1st cause above are most often, I'd say.

With "excess enzymes" I've meant those which sulphate-reducing bacteria in the intestine (can't say now in which part of intestine excatly) have them. Low-sulphur diet should help you in two days, if these bacteria are the cause of the smell.

Lactase - enzyme which helps to break down lactose in lactose intolerant people, help to digest them dairy and thus prevents diarrhea. But this has nothing to do with the smelly gas, since the gas in lactose intolerance is not actually so smelly. Also, if you were having lactose intolerance, you'd have diarrhea after any dairy.

When I eat some particular spices (something from paprica), oh yes, I get that smelly issue, oh yes, I know.

So, how's the smell? Low-sulphur diet, anyone tried?
