After getting sick in Dec w/vomiting and diarrhea I've had IBS-D since. I haven't had one normal stool since then and have lost over 20 pounds. Other than that, I feel fine. I'm tired of being afraid to go with anyone anywhere, afraid to be without a toilet, etc. So, I made an appt with my regular Dr. There is no gastroenterolist near me. I'm dead set against any invasive tests at this time. So, what should I ask him to test me for? I'm interested in leaky gut, blood tests for parasites,etc. I'll do stool tests, but don't have much faith in them because I know they are often false negatives. Any suggestions? My appt is tuesday 3/13.
