January 3, 2013 at 10:31 AM

We are a happy family and we have health issues

My son has cerebral palsy, developmental delays, gastrological issues, and behavioral issues (but doing great on that)  He is a young adult on a toddler/pre-school level-technically non-verbal and in a wheelchair


I have epilepsy and colitis and nerve damage (neuropathy)

My husband has undiagnosed-losing weight, he shakes, and dizzy, and severe muscle weakness

Going through tessting right now-he is

How about your family?

     My SIL had the same problem although never named.

    She did an elimination diet and can no longer eat Gluten, Dairy, chocolate, garlic, tomatoes, excessive capsaicin (hot peppers) and a few other things. Its been much better.

    Quoting FooLynRoo:

    Yes its a real syndrome, there are complications from it, 

    its often accompanied with cramps sweats, terrible belly pain.

    Eating and pooping has become a nightmare.

    I am trying to manage it with diet, but am struggling.

    As a result i have mal absorption, inflamed intestines. lots of nasty shit going on down there.

    Its seen a lot in gastric bypass patients etc, not that i've had that done YAY 

     

    Quoting MrsRinehart2010:

     Foo thats really a syndrome? my body does an always had done that , did know it was an issue? Should I worry lol

    Quoting FooLynRoo:

    My body poops about 10-30 minutes after i eat something.

    What is dumping syndrome?

    Quoting FooLynRoo:

    I have health issues, that are managable, Hashimotos, Dumping Syndrome, arthritis in my back, high blood pressure. but no BETIS yet!

    Hopefully if I can stop fucking around, 2013 is the year of weight loss for me.

     

    Dh has pollups in his nose, he's currently undergoing some treatement to see what clears up , he probably needs nose surgery but otherwise healthy

    Son - he has some allergies but otherwise a healthy kid

     I've been the guinea pig of gluten free cooking for a while now, since MIL is trying to help SIL with new recipes. Some subsitutions are good, some terrible.
