Welcome to Just Answer.
Do you have diarrhea?
How many times do you pass stool?
Sometimes, I have some IBS type symptoms. Sometimes my stool will be normal and at the end it will be watery, I go 1-3 times a day
Vegetables have cellulose which is not digested.
So this can increase the volume of stool.
Digestive enzymes would not help.
The sugar portions of the vegetables are absorbed.
Chewing is a good habit to break down it.
In IBS too there can be increased frequency sometimes.
As your MRI & all blood tests are normal, it would not be much worrying.
Please feel free to ask, if you have any query
But is it normal for them not to be digested at all? Im not trying to be gross but if I eat an olive it looks just like it did when I ate it. also Its like I have these attacks to give you an example, earlier this evening my lower intestines, stomach started growling and gurgling severly, I had no pain, but I had gas and felt very fatigued, I had a bowel movement, my stool had clear mucous in it and lots of undigested food, I feel better, but my stomach is still growling a bit. I also have problems with lettuce & rice as well. I seem to digest meats ok.
my ferretin was 545 and RBC was normal but borderline high
saturation was a bit low @ 17%
esr & crp normal
How is RBC count exactly?
theres my test
Please wait. I am looking to the test results.
Thank you for waiting.
The RBC & hemoglobin levels are within normal limits.
Ferritin is higher but saturation is lower than normal.
Higher saturation is seen with hemochromatosis.
High ferritin level can be present with other conditions too.
Do you have any history of liver disease?
But your liver tests are normal.
Bilirubin, AST, ALT are normal.
My MRI said I had a mild fatty liver without evidence of focal suspicious lesion
In infection or inflammation, there can be higher level of ferritin but CRP, ESR are also normal.
normal appearing mrcp
can IBS cause it?
Mild fatty liver can be a factor.
IBS would not cause it.
so could the mild fatty liver cause digestive issues
or could I possibly be lactose intolerant?
Do you tolerate milk products?
I tried cutting off all dairy and felt like I had some improvement, but not all symptoms disapeared, coffee also seems to be a trigger. The weird thing is if I eat these proccesed chicken patties from wal mart I will almost always have an episode
I have also been tested for gluten intolerance
Did you have hydrogen breath test?
Most people with lactose tolerance can tolerate some amount of milk or milk products.
As you feel some improvement after cutting off dairy, you can discuss with doctor to have a hydrogen breath test.
This test often help to diagnose if there is any such problem.
There is a test at walgreens that test for allergies, lactose intolerance, etc. do you know if it is a reliable test?
Please write the name of the test.
The brand name?
There may be a problem with chat. I am changing to question & answer format.
sorry for the wait
you there ?
did you see the walgreen test kit I posted above
What do you think is wrong with me?
