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.

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated.
