I lost a lot of weight several years ago and have thin light

Customer Question

i lost a lot of weight several years ago and have thin light colored stools lately having watery explosive stools. What testing do you think I should do for a proper diagnosis.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I've seen many doctors having 3 colonoscopies in the past 2 Kristen
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: A MRI showed possible bile duct problem but the doc thought there was a glitch in the film and that there wasn't any problem. Went for an ercp procedure, but the doc didn't complete the procedure because he didn't see anything that would indicate a problem at first entrance into the area. He thought the procedure was too delicate and dangerous to continue

sorry about your bowels and diarrhea

you could have bad irritable bowel sydnrome

or a bowel allergy to gluten wheat protein or lactose milk protein.

you may need to avoid gluten or lactose for 1-2 weeks and see if this helps

cutting out carbohydrates out of your diet could help your bowels.

you can also get a HIDA gall bladder scan to see if your gall bladder is working properly.
