Over the last year or so I have experienced incidents of extreme diarrhea where I would feel pain in my abdomen and have to run to the bathroom and feel as if I was emptying out everything in my intestines. I could never quite narrow down what was the cause for this until yesterday. After eating eggs for breakfast this happened to me once again and the only food I put in my body was eggs. After researching this online I found many articles that pointed my in the direction of having irritable bowel syndrome. Or simply a problem in my gut. This is a quote I borrowed from LiveStrong.com
“Egg intolerance is commonly confused with egg allergies because of similar symptoms that develop after consuming eggs. Egg intolerance is the result of a defect in your digestive system, not of an allergic reaction to eggs. During digestion, your small intestine produces certain enzymes used to break down the proteins in eggs. If you lack the appropriate enzymes to break down these proteins, you can develop nausea, vomiting, gas, bloating, diarrhea and cramping. Most egg intolerance does not affect any part of your body aside from your digestive system.”
I think that it may be time to make an appointment with my primary care physician to get this checked out.
My blood sugar is good and my weight is steady. I am selecting once again to not workout this morning, but will do a lot of walking during the course of the day including many trips up and down the stairs at work. I will return to my routine soon, but right now I am fascinated at the fact that just my busy daily activities alone are keeping me healthy and I am a little concerned about taking care of this problem I am having with eggs. I know how important gut bacteria is and want to spend some time learning more about keeping it healthy.
