Stomach pain and diarrhoea

Posted , 6 users are following.


I have been suffering with bouts of diarrhoea and stomach pain for about 5 weeks now, sometimes I am sick with it. It tends to happen after I have had something to eat. I am 50 years old and have had diabetes type 2 for 10 years and I take Trulicity(Dulaglutide)for this, which is a once a week injection, can anybody help?

    Ooh tough one  I'd see your doctor something else is going on despite your diabetes,  what sparked any it 5 weeks ago.

    Keep a food diary and see if something is triggering it.  Keep an eye on the main ingredients like soy, wheat, milk, almond and fructose.  Consider getting tested for h-pylori via blood test and if you want, you could do a parasite cleanse.  In the meantime, keep up your fluid intake with clear fluids, stay away from any bad foods, start taking a multivitamin & a probiotic along with some pepto when needed. Don't be alarmed if your stools and/or tongue become black.  Perfectly normal when taking pepto. Do this until you find out what's causing your symptoms.

    Try a food diary if your symptoms come on after you eat.  Maybe you have a food intolerance.  See your doctor as well
