I was diagnosed about 3 years ago after a bout of parasites and bacteria gone crazy in my gut. The antibiotics raged havoc. Was it because I already had this unusual condition or was the condition a result of the antibiotics…I don’t think I’ll ever know. At this point I continue to work at maintaining and gaining weight by eating frequently throughout the day. And eating as healthy as I can in order to stay strong and nutritionally well. The side effects are few…running nose when my stomach is getting full and phelgm accompanied by belching when its reach the limit. I take Diovol antacids which work quickly and effectively.
