So I went to my new GP yesterday I've lost 30 lbs since August. I have to admit that I cut out sodas, snacking, and only have carbs about once a week when I have pizza night with my husband and that's not every week. I was concerned by the weight loss, sometimes I have burning in my stomach and throat, a moving pain on the left side of my abdomen, bowels go from constipation to diarrhea, and sometimes my poop floats. My doctor seems to think this is all from my new way of eating and he thinks that I should've lost more weight because of the drastic change to my diet. I had blood work done by my old doctor a month ago that showed I'm a bit anemic and my sugar has lowered because I was previously pre diabetic. My new doctor doesn't think there's a need for further testing and that the reason for the changes in bowels and stomach pain is due to the change in my diet.
I also suffer from anxiety and depression and he believes those are factors as well. Should I request a certain type of testing or to see a GI specialist or should I just accept his and my previous doctor's diagnoses. I feel like because I'm overweight they are happy about the weight loss and don't consider there could be any underlying cause. Not sure what to do.
