hello, i would suggest you get tested for fructose malabsoption, lactose,glucose, lactulose and gluten intolerances, the first 4 are breath tests and the last is a blood test, cheers.
Thank you for your advice, none of my health care team have suggested any of the above in the whole time I have suffered. I have excluded lactose and gluten intenetionally for a few weeks each which didn't have any noticeable effect but I will get some proper tests done.
There is a blood test for crohns that shows if you have the gene. It is expensive, about 400. However, it sounds like early stage of chrons. The fact that there was inflamation where the small and large intestine joins sounds like it also. The foul smell also sounds like crohns. Good luck
Did any doctor give you LOMOTIL (Diphendxylate/Atrop 2.5mg )
Also, you should have a Doctor give you IV Potassium.
Get your Potassium levels checked, if they are low .
Then request Klor-con 8 8MEQ TER
Note: NEVER TAKE MORE THAN 2 tablets
All this can affect your condition.
Hope you get help,
let me know how you went.
I have been put on an increased dose of Colestyramine (3 x 4g sachets per day) and this is actually had a dramatic effect on my symptoms within a week. I shall mention the above to my doctor, and keep you all updated as to how things go. Once again thanks for all your comments, replies and suggestions
