Wow, this is where gut issues can lead you. Words like "modalities" and "case studies" are serious business.

Interesting! Yet another symptom that could affect runners which they may attribute to anything other than the real cause!

Ewwww! It's one thing to handle your own blood and fecal matter but 40 other peoples'?! I bet the good doctor didn't talk about his day's work at the dinner table. Or, maybe he tried to and his family shushed him real fast. Once again, we must all do anything required of us in the name of sports medicine.

Just Right Races's insight:

Ok, full disclosure - I was an English major undergrad and post-grad. Science is something I marvel at from afar unless and until I find that something in my world is being disrupted by it. Like, I couldn't do a run longer than 40 minutes without "GI distress" (read painful, urgent diarrhea.) When that got to be intolerable, I turned to science for answers. This video is really good and easy to follow even if you're like me and only have Internet-level knowledge of the concepts and terms.

Food allergy or sensitivity: Signs you might have one | A Healthier ... | The Gut | Scoop.it
You probably know someone who can't eat anything with peanuts, wheat, dairy, eggs or soy in it because of a food sensitivity or allergy. And you can't walk through the aisles of most supermarkets without seeing an ...
Just Right Races's insight:

From the article: "Identifying food allergies and sensitivities might seem tricky, but 90 percent of them are caused by just eight foods: peanuts, tree nuts (such as walnuts, pecans and almonds), fish, shellfish, milk, eggs, soy and wheat." In my case soy is the devil.

Is This Symptom Even a Food Allergy?: Clinical Types of Food Protein-induced Enterocolitis Syndrome

"#FPIES is an under-recognized non-IgE-mediated gastrointestinal food allergy" http://t.co/OeVnfZVC10, #foodallergies
Just Right Races's insight:

This is a technical scientific paper from NIH, but it's worth picking through. Food protein includes milk and soy. Lactose is usually blamed for milk problems and histamine plays a role in digestive issues involving soy. Interesting to look at both from a protein perspective.

5 Diseases Doctors Often Get Wrong

5 Diseases Doctors Often Get Wrong | The Gut | Scoop.it
Sometimes doctors have just as much trouble identifying certain disorders and conditions as their patients.

Via Weeziesgfkitchen
Just Right Races's insight:

IBS and celiac disorders are at the top of the list. Of course. Any of us who have gone to GPs, gastrointerologists, and allergists can attest how hard these are to get confirmed correctly.

askdrmaxwell's curator insight, July 28, 2014 5:47 PM

I agree with this list. Oftentimes, it's the chronic conditions with multiple symptoms that can be the most difficult to diagnose.

Just Right Races's insight:

I just enjoy hearing other people talk about leaving their dignity at home when going for a long run. Makes me feel part of a community. A sweaty community that meets in public bathrooms, behind bushes, under bridges... Wait, that sounds like something else. I'm talking about runners, don't be a perv!
