Gilberts disease

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have digestive problems for 10 years already.

It started as an intolerance to meat and fried foods, especially with proteic ones.

I have done endoscopy (both of them), CT scans, MRI's and everything seems fine.

The only thing that was wrong in the studies is a slightly high level of bilirubin (this abnormal result came always like that) but the liver enzymes are well too.

Today is that im having trouble eating meat, I get diarrhea and the abdomen on the right side below the ribs swells and it hurts a lot, if I eat more meat or take some medication after that, I start vomiting and don't stop until I get injected with metoclopramide.

I would like to know if anyone else had similar problems or have any suggestions.

    If your meat-intolerance is not caused by some genetic disorder - first thing you have to do is to stop doing invasive diagnostic procedures and taking injections. These things are more harmful than high bilirubin levels. I suggest you to try vitamin B12 supplement in dose 1000 mcg, then if you will feel better it means you have a deficiency. Take b12 for few days, if you feel sick after it - cut the dose to 500 mcg, or stop taking it. You should take all b vitamins in complex after vitamin b12 and also take magnesium, especially if you drink a lot of plain water. Also i suggest you to do blood tests of copper and zinc, because they are very important to stomach acid production (meat require high acidity to digest) and gut health
