Sir, A few months ago, I suddenly came to know the problem of diabitese which is under control after changes in my diet, particularly very low sugar intake. But after stroke of diabetes, I noticed gastric problem even after taking breakfast and notice foam in my stool. Discharge of gas after meals embarasses me. I understand my intestines are not able to suck vitamins, protiens etc. and undigested food gets released as stool which smells and usually I notice foam in stool. I am very much worried. Could you kindly answer the problem and remedies too.
