Hey everyone coming through to say hi and share what's been up with me since last time I've been hanging in there and staying strong as usual.I've been going to a new medical center called the Marino Center they deal with holistic health options I see a nutritionist there who has me on a no gluten,no wheat,no sugar,no dairy diet I've noticed somewhat of a change.I recently met with a doctor there and explained my medical history with IBS told him everything I've been going through concerning IBS and how it effects me.The conclusion he came to were he wanted to take my blood to see if I'm lacking any minerals and he feels the problems are cause of my small intestines feeling there may be obstruction going on in that area.So he gave me two test to take at home one for Candida a urine test and another which is a breath test to determine if I have any bad bacteria in my small intestine.

These test are critical for me to take and take right and mailed out in time to get the results they are so complicated I need to make sure I do them precise and correct.There are a lot of foods I need to avoid cause if I do not the test will not show up the accurate results.I'm so stressed over them and worrying when and how I should take them not wanting to mess up anything this could be the answers that I've been looking for that will get me back to loving and living my life again I'm so scared I'll mess them up.I've been praying about it hoping I'll give the correct about of right samples for the labs and one test I need to have done in a 48 hour time span and another in a few days.I'm so stressed out over these test and there is all these things I need to fill out and have done correctly and avoid aaaahhhh help.If anyone has ever taken these test please let me know your experience with them cause I do not know how I'm even to begin to take them I do not want to screw them up.Why could they not have been test I could have taken at the doctors office that was what I was thinking that they would have been easy test to take and I would know the results next visit nope not that simple.When it's the last hope that I have it has to be so complicated but I know things will come out right this is my life I will not mess this up at all.

Other then that guys keep me in your prayers like I keep everyone on this forum in mine and hope well all get the answers we have been looking for wishing you all as always good digestive health all my love. :-)

Hey jtaurus, glad to hear you're getting some relief on the new diet...

As far as those tests go, don't stress so much. Follow the instructions you were given and you and your tests will be just fine. A lot of times a little "mistake" here or there will have absolutely no impact on the test results; you just have to do the best you can. Stressing yourself out over the tests will not help your tum-tum, that's for sure!
