I have already checked my thyroid hormone levels, and they say the values are normal.
I feel there is something wrong in the upper abdominal. Either liver, gall bladder, pancreas or just how the stomach is processing food.
I need more information about what that could be wrong. Not what kind of test I need to take. What is wrong with my body? why can I not diguest fat?
I have already had a ultrasound scan, they say my organs looks fine (pancreas, stomach ect)
I have also had that test where I drank a soup, and then they saw through scan how my stomach processed the food. It went a bit slow, but not too slow.
But how slow it goes, depends on what I'm eating. If I eat fruits and veggies, it goes much more quickly. Where as in high fat foods and meat takes a long time.
As you mention, I probably need to check my pancreas and gall bladder.
Do you have a clue of what it could be?
Do you think I might have a parasitt? or a stomach viral infection? would it have survived for so many years? it has been over three years since that backpacking trip now.
is it possible to see through gastrocopia or do you need to take test for that too?
I'm a medical student as well, it's just that I can not figure out what this can be, and it's causing me a lot of trouble mentally and fysically.
Thank you so much for taking your time.
