Hello Dr, M 36 Year Old Male and getting frequent
Can be due to irritable bowel syndrome.
Thanks for asking.
Your problem seems to be due to irritable bowel syndrome. However IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion as there is no test to confirm you have IBS, it means that when you have nothing or all your investigations are normal you are labeled as having IBS.
However, the exact cause of irritable bowel syndrome is not yet known but studies suggest that a lot of factors play a major role. This causes diarrhea, bloating and gas. Every patient with IBS is different with varying symptoms.
Initially, I would suggest you go for colonoscopy and stool microscopy test. If both these tests are normal I would suggest starting-
Tab Cibis 8mg thrice daily (contains Chlordiazepoxide, Clidinium Bromide, and Dicyclomine) consult your local pharmacy for this salt combination.
For bloating and gas take Tab Nexium 40mg twice daily. Take a probiotic daily with food as proper digestion of food will prevent excess gas formation. When food is not properly digested a large number of gases are produced inside due to incomplete fermentation of food. Hence if digestion improves overall symptoms will also improve.
Food pattern recommended is-
Eat simple and natural home cooked food.
If possible try detox diet (Raw vegans) for at least 3 months. Take normal food in lunch while in supper take uncooked raw (low fiber) natural form of food. This can play wonders.
Avoid taking excessive fibers. Total fiber intake of about 20-25 gram per day would be good for you.
No pizza, Burger, Red meat, and dairies for a few weeks.
No alcohol or smoking, if at all do.
As to take natural food rich in probiotics like Yoghurt, Kimchi, etc. This doesn't mean that you have to take them as much as you can. Just follow your body to increase their uptake gradually.
Drink lots of juices and fresh water daily. Drink cleaner water, it will help a lot.
Avoid over spicy and heavy food.
