constipation, bloating, this has been for a couple of weeks, i am diabetic and take januvia, there is no blood in stool
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Hello,
Well you are probably suffering from some amount of indigestion. This is causing the food in the gut to ferment and produce so much gas.
In my opinion you need to increase your intake of water. It will help to stimulate movement of the intestines and pass stool and gas out of the abdomen.
You can try Simethicone oral anti-foaming agent used to reduce bloating, discomfort and pain caused by excess gas in the stomach or intestinal tract
You can also take Gas-X or activated charcoal tablets to absorb the gas.

An enzyme preparation, especially one containing papain will help to digest the food.
All the medicines are available OTC.
Take metamucil.
Avoid caffeine , carbonated beverages, alcohol,fatty foods, milk products,chocolate,spicy , fatty ,high fiber foods like beans, brussel sprouts, celery, cabbage and other fibrous vegetables,sugary foods and starchy foods.

Bloating you describe can be caused due to following factors -
Constipation
Irritable bowel syndrome

Gall Stone which can also results in abdominal pain, indigestion, flatulence, belching, or bloating sensation.
In my opinion you need an ultrasound whole abdomen and blood work like CBC, ESR,LFT ,Serum amylase for further evaluation .

I suggest you to consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.
I hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
