Patient Comments (1)
St Peters, MO |
I had many symptoms All my life. Over the years of listening to my own body, I linked egg and dairy to my digestion issues. I cut these foods out but still didn't feel good even though I was eating a clean diet. I had a metabolic dr doing tests on me, I showed these tests to her. She barely glanced at them and didn't understand their meaning. My dr diagnosed me with animal fat malabsorption. It should have been obvious to her She didn't even know about hcl used to aid digestion Pushed psych meds
