Dr. Singh :

Hi,

Dr. Singh :

How long have you been undergoing treatment?

Customer:

2 weeks

Dr. Singh :

What tests have you had done to diagnose your IBS?

Customer:

no test my dr just said based on my symptoms i have ibs

Dr. Singh :

I see

Customer:

i did have a colonoscopy it came back good

Dr. Singh :

Usually IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion. In other words other causes of your symptoms have been ruled out and then if all results are negative IBS is diagnosed. Therefore, if after 2 weeks of being on probiotics, etc and you are still having symptoms of decreased appetite, bloating, etc you need further testing

Customer:

testing for what

Dr. Singh :

I recommend having simple blood work such as CMP, lipase to start off with along with an ultrasound of your belly or CT scan to look into causes of your symptoms such as your pancreas, gallbladder, etc. You may also require an EGD (since you have already had a colonoscopy done) to rule out that this isnt gastritis or gerd

Customer:

what is an egd is that endoscopy

Dr. Singh :

yes it is an endoscopy

Dr. Singh :

but it is from your mouth to look at your esophagus and stomach

Customer:

is a cmb different from cbc

Dr. Singh :

yes

Dr. Singh :

a CMP stands for complete metabolic panel. its a test that checks your electrolytes, liver function and kidney function, and glucose

Customer:

thank you doc do you have any ideas as to what my problem is

Dr. Singh :

Without the proper imaging tests it is hard to say. It could be anything from gastritis, reflux, gallbladder issue, diverticulitis, colitis

Customer:

thank you for your time

Dr. Singh :

You are very welcome

Dr. Singh :

Do you have any further questions?

Customer:

Dr. Singh :

that could be due to an electrolyte imbalance, a pinched nerve, neuropathy
