Why do I get bad diarrhea after EVERY time I eat any kind of pasta? It comes quickly-less than an hour after I eat the pasta.

Pasta: Please wait at least two weeks before you again take pasta. If the end of two weeks gives rise to diarrhea stop pasta for a long time and see what develops. Yes, pasta is great, but not if it is harmful to you. Please keep me posted. ...Read more

Had loose stools for over 3 weeks...i have to relieve myself after i eat daily.

 Had  loose stools for over 3 weeks...i have to relieve myself after i eat daily.

Too long: I am sorry, you must feel uncomfortable. 3 weeks is a bit too long to say just a viral infection and I would try to have some stool studies done to see if you have an infection. If that is ruled out then other exams may need to be done. In the mean time, it cannot hurt to take some acidophilus tablets to help replace your gut with the "good bacteria". You can get these in any pharmacy. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with irondeficiency but I do not have any symtptoms. I am an athlete and i get diarrehea 30min after i eat anything. Whats wrong?

Maybe nothing.: I assume you are a menstruating female. Mild iron deficiency is common in your age group. Diarrhea 30 minutes after eating is sometimes due to irritable bowel syndrome. There are other causes which are less likely, but you should probably see your doc to consider them. ...Read more

Does eating meat of any type, in any quantity, in any form, in any method of preparation lead to the same result? Best to see your doctor if this is a major concern. ...Read more

Lactose Intolerance: While you note you can eat other dairy products without a problem pizza cheeses like mozzarella are fresher cheeses with more lactose present. Try taking some OTC Lactase the next time you eat pizza. If this solves your problem, you have your answer it's lactose intolerance...if not see an allergist for further evaluation. ...Read more

Why do I get diarrhea whenever i eat tomatoes?

Nightshades: In some people, foods from the nightshade family (eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes [not yams or sweet potatoes, which come from other plant families], etc) are pro-inflammatory. They contain components which can irritate your digestive system, producing diarrhea. Also this can contribute to the junctions between cells lining your GI system becoming "leaky" and leading to additional problems. ...Read more

Why do I get diarrhea when i eat eggs?

Consider allergy?: Perhaps there can be some type of allergy you have with eggs? My suggestion would be to keep a food diary of everything you eat along with how you feel after those meals. See if there is a correlation with eggs and your symptoms of diarrhea. You may find it could be something else you are eating as well! ...Read more
