Hello. I’m currently waiting to se a gi specialist and an internal med because my family physician does not know what to do of all this. I’ve been feeling ill ( weak unwell nausea ) for couple of months. I’ve been also having pale stool sticky( not white just pale brown -yellow ) that’s not going back to normal ...for almost a year. And the only thing that came up on tests is a mildly longer spleen.. at 14,5 cm, a 4 mm micro cyst on liver and my urobilinogene is 34 instead of 17.
The bilirubin is ok. And the LFT are ok as well.
Any idea? I also have abdominal discomfort. The urobilinogene increased makes sense with the pale stool. However it does not because all the other values are normal range.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you are having these symptoms

have you tried to go gluten free and milk free to see if this would help your symptoms

for many patients, going gluten free, avoiding white flour, sugar, pasta, bread, milk can often help their bowels work better.

I’ve tried it

you should keep a food diary of what you are eating to see what foods bother your GI system the most and what foods cause the most nausea.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
