Foul gas regardless of diet

Foul gas regardless of diet

Ever since a few hours after eating this morning I have had extremely foul gas. It is enough to make my own eyes water and smells badly of sulfur.

My diet is the same every day and very bland with oatmeal and a bit of sweetener in the morning. I have a granola bar a little later with some steamed peppers, carrots and green beans. I also have some peaches or pears that I cut up. I always drink a lot of water.

Since I have the same food daily, I don't understand why I am suddenly generating this gas. Is this relatively normal for everyone or am I doing something "special"?

Thanks

RE: Foul gas regardless of diet

I haven't gotten to your very controlled diet yet and I do get the foul odors. They are completely awful. That was why I started in the forums in the first place. So far I have not found a specific reason. I think the gut is just a big chemical reaction with too many variables so at some point it can go off.

My only understanding is that the bacteria produce the gases so when the odors are worse I think the amount of bacteria has gone up. I have no idea why however.

At least it isn't just me. I am not sure if it can actually be controlled with a more rigorous diet. That wasn't the reason I started eating this way. I found so many foods disagreed with me. Now they are just disagreeing with everyone else Sad

These days happen to me too on occasion. The only thing I can do is take Gas-x to reduce the amount a bit. It certainly doesn't stop the gas for me.

Have you had your stool tested during one of these episodes to see your bacterial mix? If you are getting a bacterial overgrowth, your doctor might make some recommendations. Just a thought.

Using the Gas-x doesn't help me much at all. I still produce too much gas and am constantly passing it. I also have not had my stool checked because I only get the gas for a day at a time before it is back to my normal levels.

I guess I could try to go in on the same day if I could get an appointment. I would just hate to be sitting in the waiting room.

Some fruits and vegetables cause me problems. Milk products definitely do. Are you lactose intolerant at all? It took me some time but I eventually weeded out those foods that were causing me problems.

By the way, you don't need to go to the doctor for doing a stool sample. You can just get the container and collect it at home.

I am lactose intolerant so I avoid milk products completely. When you said you weeded out certain foods, I have done that. Do you have a certain strategy that you used to find those foods causing you problems. I don't see how I would do it when the gas is unpredictable.

My only strategy would be to stop eating a food for a month or two and see if you have the gas. Even it doesn't cause gas one time, it might cause it another timer. If it goes away, reintroduce it and see if the gas comes back. It takes a while, but it works okay.

The food is fermenting in your guts. Do you chew your food thoroughly? Swallowing food without chewing properly can leave your digestive system overtaxed, it takes longer to digest the food and it ferments, resulting in foul gas. You might want to consider taking digestive enzymes to help the digestive process.

Keep a food diary for a month, and list everything you eat and drink, and when you have the gas. You may find a pattern emerging. It's possible you may need a fibre supplement to settle your gut. I would definitely speak to your doctor about this - you don't need to go when you're in full flow methane production. You may not think so, but your problem is a common one with IBS, and your doctor can probably help.
