My DH and DD are blissfully healthy and strong. I however, have multiple disabilities and have cancer for the 4th! time. I will be forever grateful that DD takes after her Daddy in health :-)

 My SIL had the same problem although never named.

She did an elimination diet and can no longer eat Gluten, Dairy, chocolate, garlic, tomatoes, excessive capsaicin (hot peppers) and a few other things. Its been much better.

Quoting FooLynRoo:

Yes its a real syndrome, there are complications from it, 

its often accompanied with cramps sweats, terrible belly pain.

Eating and pooping has become a nightmare.

I am trying to manage it with diet, but am struggling.

As a result i have mal absorption, inflamed intestines. lots of nasty shit going on down there.

Its seen a lot in gastric bypass patients etc, not that i've had that done YAY 

 

Quoting MrsRinehart2010:

 Foo thats really a syndrome? my body does an always had done that , did know it was an issue? Should I worry lol

Quoting FooLynRoo:

My body poops about 10-30 minutes after i eat something.

 

Quoting lifeisajoy:

What is dumping syndrome?

Quoting FooLynRoo:

I have health issues, that are managable, Hashimotos, Dumping Syndrome, arthritis in my back, high blood pressure. but no BETIS yet!

Hopefully if I can stop fucking around, 2013 is the year of weight loss for me.

 

Dh has pollups in his nose, he's currently undergoing some treatement to see what clears up , he probably needs nose surgery but otherwise healthy

Son - he has some allergies but otherwise a healthy kid

 I've been the guinea pig of gluten free cooking for a while now, since MIL is trying to help SIL with new recipes. Some subsitutions are good, some terrible.
