My name is Dr. Angie Sadeghi. I am a
practicing gastroenterologist in Newport
Beach, California, and I treat people with
gastrointestinal diseases or digestive
There are a few very common
complaints, including gas and bloating or
abdominal distension, where people feel
pregnant. They wake up with a flat belly,
and then they eat something or drink
something, and their belly swells up—
quote-unquote swells up—and they get distended. That's very common, followed by
diarrhea, which means loose, frequent
stools; followed by constipation, which
means infrequent, hard bowel movements
that look like rabbit pellets. But I
would say gas and bloating is one of the
most common reasons. Traditionally, when
people would complain of gas and
bloating, a lot of doctors attributed the
problem to irritable bowel syndrome,
otherwise known as IBS, but a lot of
these symptoms are actually due to
lactose intolerance. People would come
into my office, and they suffer from gas
and bloating, and they say, "My GI doctor
said that I have IBS." And I would ask
them to go on a dairy-free diet, which
means that they would have to exclude
anything that comes from the cow,
meaning butter, yogurt, cheese, milk (cow's
milk). And interestingly, they come back
30 days later and they're doing
fantastic—the bloating is gone;
constipation or diarrhea is gone—which
of course means that they didn't really
have irritable bowel syndrome in the
first place and that perhaps they had an
intolerance to dairy.
