|My 15 year old daughter was incorectly diagnosed with anorexia after severe weight loss following a major diet change when she went to italy for 3 months student exchange - fortunately she rediagnosed herself & found she has irritable bowel syndrome (or one of the apparently many similar problems which mimic each other) in any case she ahs to have a specific carbohydrate diet as a result she's gained over 12 kgs (25lbs) in about 2 months & is really pretty healthy now & even has motions daily (as opposed to once every 5-6 days) & without screaming in agony with them.
But she is having almost constant (& i'm not exagerating) foul gas smells erupting from her anus - horrid to be near her but worse to be her in this regard. She has sought out help from forums re irritable bowel etc & was told it would happen for about a week at 1 month & then another week at 3 months after going on the diet well that was over 6 weeks ago & she's been on the diet for 2 months & had the gsa for 2 months. It sometimes seems to be worse if she has alot of fruit but really it just is there almost constantly.
As she is studying she is out with others (aside from family who won't be cruel) & I am really worried about the effect if people start saying things - which may already be happening.
