Thanks for the tip on ulcer diet, I'll have a look. As for my mother's condition, I suppose I'll have to get in touch with my step-siblings and ask them what exactly she had. All I remember was that she had to take Warfarin which is - as I'm reading right now on drugs.com - an anti-clotting medication. Nope, haven't brought it up at the doctor's yet. There are so many things I haven't been able to talk about, there's not much time left in a 10-minute appointment. TBH, look at all my conditions that ARE known to the doctor: bulimia, PCOS, hypothyroidism and what's being done about that ... the eating disorder's been in my file for almost as long as I've been in the UK, at least 12 years, yet, I'm not getting any treatment for it.
OTOH, if I were anorexic and refused to participate in socially accepted gluttonous behavior, they had me in the hospital force-feeding me through a tube right away. BTW, are there any tests, other than checking electrolytes, that can test for long-term damage from bulimia? Plus, as I was conveniently psychiatrically assessed with a sudden onset of personality -, and adjustment (to what?) disorder 8 years ago without checking for biochemical/hormonal imbalances, I think rather then listen to my concerns, it'll be shrugged off as my being a nutcase seeking attention.
On another note, the diarrhea I mentioned in my post on 7th Aug isn't going away. I had been taking pre- and probiotics a few days before it started, I thought they might be causing it so I stopped taking them the following day (8th) but it hasn't made any difference.
