I wholeheartedly agree.quote:I know this is a confusing issue when there are people who are posting bad information(ie, Island Girl)
This doesn't prove you had BO believe it or not. Neomycin could conceivably deaden the breath test response in anyone who had any H2-producing bacteria.quote:My result was normal.
This is correct, but 1) did they do antroduodenal manometry and find a problem with your Phase III? 2) Usually, they give you erthromycin and see if that induces Phase III. It does in healthy folks but not in those with pseudo-obstructionCould they be testing the a non-IBS crowd? It's hard for me believe because not having Phase III is a motility disorder of mega proportions. It is not IBS; it's pseudo-obstruction. People who don't have Phase III usually cannot eat at all and must live on either tube feedings or intravenous feedings.quote:Once again unknown but they believe it has to do with your Phase III contractions.
Constipation I don't get. But it should cause a lot more. Malabsorption for one. And that usually leads to anemia, which leads to fatigue, but I doubt it could fix your fatigue that quickly and were you ever diagnosed with anemia?quote:He also claims the BO causes diarrhea and constipation.
Ditto.quote:He also said in theory that probiotics can make the matter worse.
First, what exactly was the result numerically? Second, the burping could be related to the esophagus (and LES) and not the stomach. Do you know how well your LES works?quote:He had me do a repeat study after 4 days off of my med. I was shocked to see that the result was normal study. Does this make sense to you?
This is a normal high value in labs who do the test right. Must be your gas was mainly CO2 or you had really bad overgrowth along the whole tract. Do you know what the area under the curve was?
