IBS, cannot digest fat, chicken

Hello All,

I am new here , wondering if any of you can suggest me anything , that might help me reduce my discomfort and concerns .

Have problem of Heart burning at times.Flatulence.
If i have chicken today(very bland preparation , only chicken breast fatless) tomorrow my motion will not be clear, then I will start passing smelly winds , later I will pass off colored stool, which floats , stinks, tough to flash away. next day (after 2 days) the problem will still remain , even worse.

Mid night i get up with upper abdominal discomfort .too much of pressure created by excessive gas stuck in chest and throat.
Cannot eat any sort food having slight bit of fat in it.

Seems like i have problem with broken wheat also at times, yet to confirm that.Seems like my IBS issues get worse with insoluble fiber.

Some times i feel hungry every 3 hrs , and cannot stand that hunger pang , as if the whole intestine will digest itself.

The problem is I am having B12 and D deficiency now.
Protein also my A/G ratio is less.
As my diet is extremely restricted to only certain things , I am worried about my nutrition to maintain a healthy weight.

I had endoscopy last year, colonoscopy also , but didnt show anything.

Re: IBS ,cannot digest fat , chicken

Some people are allergic to chicken, and gluten (in wheat and some other grains) intolerance is very common. It can cause celiac disease, which causes vitamins and nutrients from food to not be absorbed. That is called malabsorption syndrome. That causes high fat stools, which is what makes them float. You should see a gastroenterologist for diagnostic testing for celiac disease, malabsorption, possible gall bladder problems and to get treated for your viatmin deficiencies. Anemia is common in celiac disease from lack of iron absorption, so iron levels and blood count should be done as well.
