Question: Nausea after meals
|MAJOR'S WIFE - Sun Sep 09, 2007 1:55 pm||
I am a 43 y/o female.
Dx with Hypothyroidism x 15yrs
Dx with ADD in college 1990
2 childbirths, 1985 & 1989
Gastroplasty - 1996
Cholecystectomy - 1998
Redundant skin removal - same as Chole.
Gastric bi-pass - 2001
Meds- Synthroid 112mcg q d
Adderall 40mg bid
After eating a meal or even a snack, I become very nauseous for about an hour or so. No vomiting, no loose stools, just nauseous!! I am Chief Tech @ the Dialysis Ctr where I work and have checked my Blood Sugar, just to see if it is elevated - the highest it has been is 176, about 15mins after eating. Recently re-evaluated for ADD and recent labs were fine; Synthroid was increased from 100 to 112 mcg's. Other than this, I'm healthy as a horse. Can you suggest something?
Thanks for your time!

Hi Major's Wife,
With your history of gastroplasty and gastric bypass you may have some symptoms related to this. It may also be something like reflux or ulcers. Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach) can also occur.
With your past surgeries I would recommend you consider seeing a GI specialist to have this fully evaluated.
