Are stomach bloating and hypoglycemia related?

Are stomach bloating and hypoglycemia related?

Probably not related: A person who often feels bloated (in the tummy) is not normal, especially if bloating is new. A doctor can evaluate to look for the cause. Problems can be from constipation or eating things the person cannot digest. Some parasites cause bloating. More serious causes of bloating include a build-up of fluid in the abdomen due to kidney disease, liver problems, heart failure, abdominal cancers, etc.. ...Read more

26 year-old man with 4 years of gradually increasing swallowing problems, felt to be esophageal dysfunction, with normal chest and abdominal CT.....?

Keep on looking: Your ethnicity and age makes Eosinophilic esophagitis EoE a strong suspect despite the biopsy findings. In fact I have a patient in whom it took a 3nd endoscopy and biopsy to finally show that he had indeed EoE as I had initially suspected. The one thing which is unusual is the oral thrush in the absence of steroid or diabetes. Thus a fasting metabolic panel may be worthwhile to rule out diabetes. The hypokalemia is also unexpected in the absence of any known cause. Here's what I would suggest: (a)Get a fasting metabolic panel to rule diabetes if not done already. (b)Try eliminating wheat, egg, milk, soy, and peanuts from your diet for a month and see if there is any change in your symptoms. If possible get scoped again for objective observation. (c)Work with an allergist and nutritionist to make sure that you are on the right track. Good luck ...Read more

Causes of weight loss despite eating like pig (fast food, mini muffins, sugared bevs)? Normal CBC. Low-end salivary cortisol. Other Sx are fatigue, sleep issues, and excessive urination. More likely adrenal failure or cancer, and what kind?

Causes of weight loss despite eating like pig (fast food, mini muffins, sugared bevs)?  Normal CBC.  Low-end salivary cortisol.  Other Sx are fatigue, sleep issues, and excessive urination.  More likely adrenal failure or cancer, and what kind?

Rule out diabetes: And not diabetic? Doubt cancer. And why would you have adrenal failure out of the blue? Not a chronic steroid user, are you? Or had recent infection? Sounds like you need to see an endocrine if your PCP can‘t figure it out. Could be an autoimmune thing, too. ...Read more

What are some symptoms of endometriosis? Can lower abdomen bloating and digestive issues fall under this?

What are some symptoms of endometriosis? Can lower abdomen bloating and digestive issues fall under this?

Most likely not.: Endometriosis usually presents with pain at the site where the endometrial tissue is located. Commonly flares up at the same time as your period. The condition does not really involve your ability to digest food so it should not cause bloating or digestive issues. I would recommend seeing your MD. OTC probiotics, like Align etc, may also help, or even a good yogurt daily can sometimes help. ...Read more
