Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Her doctors have stuck cameras down her throat and egd twice but everything looks fine from the surgery. She has seen a nutritionist on ongoing visits. She was then living off crackers ( 6 as day - 2 brkfst, 2 lunch, 2 dinner) until last June. I got her eating baby food and currently switching health care providers, can you believe they lost her records.
How is it some girls gain all there weight back, I just want her to hold her food down.
Her new health care becomes effective December 1, 2010. She has seen several doctors in the last two months. Best suggestion is No enzymes to digest the food, No stomache. Does this sound plausible?
Couple of more things to mention: My sister has diabetes, hence liver failure, had to have gastric bypass. Gave her one year to live otherwise.
Secondly, my sister has hiv. Her counts are dropping from not eating. Recently checked since no records. Last June, she had a higher count.
Do you think chewing a sugarless gum for one hour after eating will help with digestion?
Need more information for dietary habits after gastric bypass. Getting worried.
Thanks for letting me take the time to research more about enzymatic therapy. I am going to stand by the Bio Gaia probiotics for this. I think that is your best try.
It seems that she has already been checked out for narrowing of the opening to the "stomach" as that can be a cause of nausea/vomiting.
I am also assuming that she is on a PPI which is medication to help any ulcers that are there. Those medications would be like Prilosec, Nexium, etc.
Knowing she has HIV, she may want to take acidophalius pills. There is one called Pearl acidophalius that is well tolerated. This will help if she has a chronic yeast problem in the intestines.
Basically, she need a provider that will be aggressive with finding the cause and treatment of her nausea. ANd not to forget the importance of psychological counseling during this time as well. She could have psychogenic vomiting that is a learned behavior when she eats that she will vomit. All of these components need to be done together.
I wish you the best!
