Hi everyone, I'm new to this site but unfortunately not new to IBS. Here is my brief story: I've had IBS-D for 6 years although it seems that I've now transitioned to a C (no idea why). Over the last 6 years I've been to my MD countless times and also to four different GI docs. I've had scopes (up, down and sideways), ultrasounds, x-rays, CT scans) and practically every prescription and OTC known to man. I've also tried many odds things (such as shots of organic apple cider vinegar, cleanses, laxatives, charcoal tabs, fish oil capsules etc) and NOTHING has helped (not tests, meds or docs). Anyway, my question is this....how many of you with IBS (C or D) also have been diagnosed with a "fatty" liver? The last GI doc I saw did blood work on me and that was the only result that he felt necessary to mention. He actually looked at me and asked (in a rather demeaning tone) "do you drink excessively?" And to be completely honest, I'm 40 years old and am not now nor have I ever been a "drinker" (maybe 3 times a year). As an additional note - the only other thing that I've heard from the doctors is that I also have a hiatal hernia. Anyway (and I know it's a longshot) I'm just simply wondering if the IBS could in any way be tied in with the "fatty" liver diagnosis. Bottom line is that I am desperate for answers and just so tired of being uncomfortable with DAILY bloating/gas and mortified by the bodily noises, I just need some kind of answer(s) as to where all of this came from.
