Chronic diarrhoea
Hi I'm new to this but just wanted some help!!
I've been diagnosed pcos for 20 years had metformin in past for insulin resistance. Had diarrhoea every day for almost a year now ( not on metformin) with occ fatty stools dr thinks could all be related to pcos as pancreas deficiency. Any body else experienced anything similar?
Would love some advice really getting me down :(

HI,
The symptoms of diarrhoea you are having could be due to a variety of factors like dyspepsia, gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastro-oesophageal reflux, mal-absorption syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, intestinal infections. Since this has been going on since one year you need to get investigated. Blood work, stool examination & endoscopy may be done. Consult your Doctor.
Take care & good luck.

Thank you for your response

I have had blood tests, lower bowel examination, barium enema X-ray and , I forgot to mention a mesenteric lymph node biopsy as this was 2 cm when ct scan  and came back non cancerous ,
Gp now ordered more tests inc celiac .
I have been seeing My dr since April last year kept being told was UBS for stress although I had no abdominal pain what so ever , they are finally taking seriously now I think.

Nicky
