Is it dumping syndrome if?



Recommended Posts

I’ve experienced a few times where I need to rush to the bathroom after eating. It was very obvious last night it was due to eating a small amount of nonfat (but w/sugar) frozen yogurt. I guess I thought dumping syndrome was super painful? My experience is not painful but it does involve the need to immediately go to the bathroom.

Is that one type of dumping syndrome?

I’m thankful for every little thing these days! It may be painful for me if the amount was more so I need to be careful. Thank you

dumping syndrome usually involves symptoms such as heart palpitations, dizziness, chills, cramps, diarrhea, and/or nausea (and you won't necessarily have ALL of these symptoms). I've heard it can last quite awhile - sometimes a couple of hours.

Sugar alcohols (artificial sweeteners whose names end in -itol) can also cause gastric distress in some people (such as cramping and diarrhea), but I would think that might take a little longer after ingestion

I got it from eating too much/taking one too many bites of food, because I didn't think I was eating enough Protein. I should have just stopped when I felt full, but didn't. I started sweating profusely, feeling light headed, then had really bad cramps, followed by pooping my brains out. You would have thought I learned my lesson, but then did it again, and again. I also got it when I ate too many Snacks at night. I have not done it now for about a week or so. I am 6 months out now, and at this point I believe I have learned my lesson.

Oh I’m sorry... I am having an issue with foamies. Today I ate tuna and I think it was too dry and didn’t go down well. Half hour later I drank Water and boom- sick. I swear, every day I’m learning something new and it’s not always pleasant.

Thank you- I’m making note of all the things that make me sick and the list is getting longer!
