Ok thanks for further information.
These symptoms can also be due to the gallbladder problem.
Excess bile acid will cause intestinal irritation.
When the gallbladder is not functioning well, the bile flow to the intestine may increase causing these symptoms.
This will result in bloating, belching and also diarrhea especially after meals.
These symptoms can be treated with a medication called Cholestyramine 4 gram twice daily will meals.
Inflammatory bowel disorders like Crohn's disease, microscopic colitis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis are other possibilities.
This requires colonoscopy to establish the diagnosis.
Malabsorption syndrome is another strong possibility.
Malabsorption syndrome includes the follow possibilities:
1.Excess bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine known as SIBO syndrome.
This is not usually diagnosed by the colonoscopy.
Small intestinal aspirate can be sent for bacterial count.
Carbohydrate breath test (D xylose) is a simple test to diagnose this condition.
But,the treatment is much easier.
A14 day course of Rifaximine improves the symptoms dramatically.
2.Lactose intolerance--- regular milk, dairy products.
3.Gluten sensitivity or celiac disease--- Wheat based products.
You should consider following low fermentable sugar diet ( FODMAP diet) to reduceyour symptoms.
Please go to this link for detailed information:
Please also include prebiotics like Inulin daily to keep your colon acidic which prevent gas producing bacteria.
Also take a probiotic ( lactobacilli, bifidobacterium) daily to restore intestinal microbial balance.
Culturelle 30 Counts twice daily should befine.
Simethicone and activated charcoal can be taken before meals to reduce gas and bloating.
