Question: Wet Explosive Gas

 downalazyriver - Fri Nov 30, 2007 10:37 pm

M53 No meds. Stool culture tested normal. During 3 week Philippine vacation, developed explosive wet gas with loose stools sometimes and just a tblspn of stool more recently after adding raw vegitables, fruits, and whole grains to my diet. Time line is about 3 weeks now.

Hello I'm back with new information. Time line 5 weeks now. Recent evidence shows I was having a herpes attack from eating foods high in L-Arginine, specifically nuts. I stopped eating nuts 3 days ago and symptoms are dissipating. Continuing more tests. More report later.

Pro Biotics recommended to increase good bacteria. GI Panel found Cryptosporidium Dec 14th. Stool has remained better than normal with Pro Biotics. Nitazoxanide has been approved for treatment of diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium in people with healthy immune systems.
