Ok, so im not sure where to post this so Ive posted it in different places. Heres my issue:
I am a 27 yr old type one diabetic for 16 yrs now. I was always taking care of myself up until 4 yrs ago when i decided to go all natural and stop taking insulin for about 2 yrs. Yes I know STUPID!!! Because of that i went from 135 pounds to 110 ...and no matter what i eat or how much insulin i take, i cant gain weight. The way i eat, i should be obese and for some reason cant gain my weight back :( I know its my fault for being so stupid in the past thinking i can survive without insulin and i need to know if anyone has been through this??
heres my bigger issue which is driving me insane and basically not letting me live my life. about 3 yrs ago, i had an ecoli stomach virus that gave me vomiting n diarrhea for about 2 days. Ever since then, my stomach has been insane. For about a yr after that, i would have constipation for exactly one week, then severe diarrhea for a day, and back to constipation again and so forth. it started to improve a little but then it got worse. For the past few months, i will get constipation for about 4-5 days..then ill start going daily but very little, after about a week i will finally get stomach pain and go A LOT that day (about twice but its enough for 2 weeks, diarrhea and all)....and the big issue with me right now is that every day, or nearly every day, i get severe flatus all day, i will fart about every 5 mins and its a smell that i call the human weapon of mass destruction. I know its not normal for it to smell that horrible and that often. Ive gotten to the point where i cant go to school or work or even see my bf as much because i know the smell would be insane. I can deal with the constipation, but this gassiness and flatus is just really making me sad and frustrated and desperate for answers. I hope someone out there can offer some useful advice and light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks!!!
