my digestive system


I am a diabetic type 1 have been for 28 years now. have had septic ulcers for twenty years now and past two years have been suffering with severe bloating and terrible stomach ache. I had a colonoscomy in Jan 2013 that came back ok. last year my abdominal scan said my stomach was swollen. I cannot eat any fatty foods at all without feeling really ill afterwards. I am now awaiting results for my scan I had on Monday.

Do you mean septic (ie infected) or peptic ulcers?

I am glad that you are being seen at the hospital. There is obviously something wrong and it needs to be sorted out.

It may help if you keep a food diary. There is one you can download here

If it is fatty foods that give you trouble, then stay away from them. You will also be used to diabetic type foods that avoid too much / processed sugar.

thank you yes I do eat healthy food cos I wouldn't be able to cope with it otherwise.


I hope that the scan diagnoses the problem.

Best Wishes for a good result!
