Hi, never posted here before but I am looking for some opinions.
My step sister has been suffering hugely lately (well for the past years) with stomach issues. She spends most of the day in the bathroom with diarrhea especially if she eats anything with wheat or yeast, like breads, chips, cereal ect. or dairy like cheese, milks, icecream ect. or processed meats like lunch meats, hotdogs etc. She seems to do ok on soya milk and on rice flour/breads or potato breads.They want to test her for crohns but she refuses to go get the tests done. She is convinced she doesn't have it and won't get the colonoscopy done. I am worried if it is crohns she is just going to get worse and worse. Sometimes her belly is so bloated she looks 9 months pregnant. Do you think these are signs it could be crohns?
