Age= 25 , Weight = 64 kilos Medical History Hello , I had a problem that i had an year back : I was given treatment for Diarrhea last year for 3 weeks. I had lost around 8 kilo weight in a span of 45 days , Due to this i was asked to undergo some tests like Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and Tissue Culture to determine my cause of problem. Later the doctors came up with an explanation that i was allergic to milk and i was advised to stop all milk related products. They later gave me 2 months treatment of a probiotic drug called “BIFILAC HP “. I did take this probiotic drug for few months and I was back in good health. Now things have resurfaced. I usually get both Diarrhea and constipation in the same day. I again did undergo endoscopy and stool test for anyhelicobactor present in stool. But all tests came negative even my endoscopy ( tissue culture ) doctors did not find a problem with small intestine. i still have a problem where i get white mucus in stools. Now i dont know what to do. They are not giving me any medicine. Any doctor out there can you please advise.
Welcome to HCM.
You appear to have done extensive investigations and the doctors still could not come out with an answer for your problem. They are doing a wise thing in not treating what they do not know. Drugs are not always useful or good for our bodies. They have sometimes harmful effects on our body and are better avoided. As advised in the earlier part of your problem, you may be allergic to milk and milk products. Try avoiding them as far as possible rather than looking out for some kind of medicine.
