gut function after stopping nicotine caffeine and alcohol
80 years old. Stopped nicotine caffeine alcohol cold turkey Jan 10, 2022.
Ok for a time but at about 4 months started diarrhea and gas.
Have done primary care doc history and exam, blood and urine tests, stool immune assay for blood, CT of abdomen, all negative.
Now doing hi fiber, low gas forming, low FODMAP diet.
What is the effect on the gut of stopping decades of nicotine, caffeine and alcohol?
Any quick fix to diarrhea and gas?
