My friend has told me that he self diagnosed himself with Lactose Intolerance (LI) but I say its not. His symptoms would be the same as LI but the time frame does not mach up. He says he gets diarrhea the next day from it and hes on it all day. He changed his diet to be different then everyone else and somewhat annoying only because I think it is in his head being a hypochondriac. This guy is only 30 and has had 3 colonoscopies and still is not sure what his problem. He eats no cheese and drinks soy milk and yet still has to use the bathroom as an emergency about 2 times a day. Can anyone help shed some light on this situation? So that he does not think i am crazy but he is the one that needs to see a different doctor.
:)Thank you all who may respond to this:)

  • Could be Ibs. Caffeine triggers my issues. Self is dangerous but we all do it. He can get tested Lactose intolerance and ibs. Have him write down what he eatsvand drinks and journal everything. I used myfitnesspal to help journal. I know it's frustrating and sometimes hard to work and live.
