Hi I'm new to the group and could do with some experienced advice. GP seems to have a 'you need to get on with it 'approach to my symptoms. I have never been told I have IBS even though all other tests for my symptoms have come back clear. I get pain,bloating and constipation after eating gluten/wheat and diarrhoea after eating sugar ( unless natural ) sometimes this can happen as quick as 30 minutes after eating. SO I've cut out offending foods and my symptoms are gone. My problem now is weight loss. Back in May 2017 I weighed 10st 8lbs (151 lb's ) and now I'm a skinny 8st 13lb (113 lb's ) and at the moment losing 1lb a dayohmy.png Has anyone else had the same issue? Any advice would be great. Thinking I need to go back to GP to get a referral to a dietician. If I carry on i'll get ill. Thanks xx

Where you from? In Australia you don't need a referral from a GP to see a dietitian you can just go see one. Have you been to a specialist Gastroenterologist to rule anything else out?

This may be strange advice... But you could try and bake your own gluten-free bread. Maybe by doing so you'll be more motivated to eat your self made bread. You'll know exactly what is inside the bread and baking is a fun activity. smile.png

Dear Doris, my sympathies for your situation. I have different symptoms, but I hope others here will have some info for you. I will keep you in my thoughts and

prayers.

Dear Doris, I don't want to frighten you but you DO need to go see a GP. It is NOT normal to lose a pound a day. That kind of weight loss MAY be a sign of something much more serious like cancer. It happened to my little brother. He suddenly lost 60 pounds without trying and at my urging saw his doctor who did a blood panel with a white blood cell count and that is how they diagnosed him with pancreatic cancer which usually has NO other symptoms. He was stage 4 and died 2 weeks later. PLEASE, go see your GP do not wait. Most likely it is NOT this serious but don't take a chance.
