Re: food allergies

once again thanx so much for listening and offering advice. well i am still staying away from gluten which gives me way less options. i dont really look thin becuz im so bloated or maybe i am perceiving it as such i dont even know. i havent seen this GI yet first time will be wednesday. and funny thing when i went to my pcp i bugged her about this a lot before i figured out it was a result of my eating disorder. she never said a thing about it. she just did a bunch of tests for parasites liver and kidney. ok so i will be honest with the gi. at this point im pretty sure this bloating is a result of my eating habits in the past. i have been searching the boards and the net like crazy for answers if this ever goes away. all i can find is other people with my same problem begging for answers and most of the answers given are inconclusive or some person uneducated about ED's talking about bloating being normal or comparing it to starving kids in third world countries.......

i wish i could talk to anyone who has experienced this id like to know if it will ever go away. i just feel so fat with this big bloated belly i dont go out anymore i dont take pictures i dont answer when friends call and i broke up with my boyfriend because i feel so disgusting. i would like some answers.

im also afraid GI wont care when i tell her whats going on. i want her to actually check out my insides not lecture about diet...

Re: food allergies

Hi,

I was weight restored from 91-109 (now weigh 105) and went through laxative withdrawal with the help of my gastro.

I really, really suggest that you tell them because there are some problems like gastric delay that could occur. (It feels like the food is just sitting in your stomach for hours. This feeling could lead to anxiety etc.. ) Also, eating more and gaining weight is going to make you feel so tired. This could cause you to want to fall asleep right after eating which could cause acid reflux. There are other symptoms like cold chills and night sweats that could occur. They can probably prescribe something to replace the diuretics.

You could write what you want to say and give it to the doc. when you meet him/her. The gastro can't do his/her job if they aren't getting the whole picture.

Good luck!
