Understanding GI Disorders

IN THE EARLY 1960s, then 5-year-old Rebecca Wainwright had surgery and spent a night alone in the hospital, as even parents had to abide by strict visiting hours in those days. Terrified, she was comforted by nurses who held her and slipped her lollipops. The experience sealed her future as a nurse.

When Elimination Diets Backfire

You've probably noticed that elimination diets are all the rage these days. From single-ingredient eliminations (like gluten free) to more restrictive elimination diets (such as Paleo, raw food and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet), there are dozens of "free-from" diets that people choose to follow for a variety of reasons. As a dietitian in a gastroenterology practice, I frequently use ...

Why Dr. Oz Was Wrong About IBS

ibs.about.com - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 21:44

As I discussed previously, Dr. Oz hosted a segment on IBS recently (see, "Dr. Oz on IBS"). As you can see by the comments following my previous blog, I was not the only one who thought Oz's coverage was awful. I recently heard from another reader, David in Seattle, who initially had me laughing out loud with his description that he at first couldn't even continue to watch the segment without wanting to throw his monitor "out the window." However, his remarks were so spot on and heartfelt, I felt compelled to share them with you:

"I've just finished watching "'Dr. Oz" and his take on IBS. I thought I had heard every ridiculous platitude imaginable concerning the origins of this miserable condition and how to address it, but this video has got to be on one the most dismissive, condescending 10 minutes of of childish nonsense I've seen yet on any topic, let alone one which devastates so many lives. I'm not sure who comes off worse in this program, the presenter or the grinning, gullible audience, but for those of us who suffer from "IBS", yet another "expert" spreading the notion that "IBS" sufferers basically are to blame for their fate, due to not being able to handle stress, and foolishly consuming artificial sweetener and chocolate is extremely unfortunate, and frankly infuriating.

I believe the entire notion that ANY single, distinct, discrete disease entity or process is responsible for the troubles of EVERY person who has been told they have "IBS" is absurd on its face. Virtually every IBD sufferer I've encountered had been told for years they had IBS before finally getting an accurate diagnosis for Crohn's or Colitis. And this is without even including more obscure conditions such as Abdominal Angina, Bile Acid Malabsorption, the Ischemic, Collagenous, Lymphocytic, Pseudomembranous, and Microscopic Colitises, Acute Mesenteric Ischemia, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, a variety of cancers, etc. "IBS" is a wastebasket diagnosis whose existence has more to do with the medical community's refusal to admit it does not know something, than it has to do with clinical realities. Let's not forget that in the days of blood letting & 'Doctors' going into bubonic plague sites wearing flower filled bird-beak masks, the "medical community" was just as certain of the legitimacy of "Humors" and "Miasma" as it is now is of the existence, prevalence and etiology of "IBS".

A more recent example of a broadly accepted medical misconception which hits a bit closer to home is the notion that stress was also the cause for peptic ulcers, something virtually all of medicine embraced prior to the discovery in 1982 of the H. Pylori bacterium, and its central role in that condition.

Under the ridiculously broad "Rome Criteria", anyone who has chronic digestive issues, and who does not have obvious IBD or a sword protruding from their abdomen, MUST have "IBS". And naturally, since the current medical community can't do anything for the vast majority of "IBS" sufferers, (aside from take their money, of course), they must have a scapegoat for that ineptitude, and that scapegoat is YOU. It's YOUR FAULT, sufferer. YOU must be DEPRESSED. Or responding hypochondriacally to STRESS. Never mind that virtually all of humanity is under some level of stress, that we evolved that way, running from massive carnivores for thousands of years, etc., all without leaving long trails of watery feces across the savanna. And pay no attention to the fact that the depression IS THE RESULT OF never being able to get more than eleven feet from a toilet, NOT THE CAUSE of that situation.

Excuse me, "Dr. Celebrity" but is this all too jaw-droppingly obvious for your limited, one-dimensional, patronizing world view? My own life was nearly perfect when I began my personal odyssey into digestive hell. I had money, a life partner whom I thought would stand by me regardless (wrong), a rewarding and creative career path, great travel experiences, life in a world-class city, enjoying all it had to offer (including FOOD) etc. I had virtually everything I had ever wanted.

Then one day, at the age of 50, I began having constant diarrhea, gas and stomach pain. The symptoms we are all so familiar with. Since that time, and as a result of this condition, I have lost my wife, my career aspirations, my house, and most of my money. I have spent thousands on conventional and alternative therapies, testing, drugs, diets, and DOCTORS, all with minimal impact. I am under FAR more stress now then I was initially, but if anything, my disorder is slightly LESS severe than it was when it initially emerged in my ideal life. The condition remains quite dysfunctional, and my minimal improvements are the result of greatly reducing fiber intake, an undesirable scenario of unknown long term sustainability & impact, but none the less, stress and depression were not the cause of my problem, BUT THE RESULT, and I'm certain that's the case with the vast majority of "IBS" sufferers!

I was surprised "Dr. Oz" did not include in his silly presentation that other attitude we in this community are so familiar with from the medicos; "It's not THAT BAD... after all, it's not FATAL". No, it's not fatal. It's just so utterly miserable and life-destroying that many of us almost wish it were."

My thanks to David for putting into words what so many people with IBS know to be true. I have never seen the Dr. Oz show before watching a bit of this episode. I don't know if the circus-like atmosphere is always present, but I found it extremely disrespectful and insensitive. I find it hard to believe that he would use the same antics when covering diabetes or asthma. Shame on Dr. Oz! He had a chance to educate and advocate, and he blew it.
