Inability to digest veggies?
Polarisld33 posted:
I've heard there are people who do not have the enzyme to break down vegetable fibers and I ave a growing concern I may be one of them. Where I primarily notice issues the most is when I eat lettuce. I enjoy salads, but every time I eat lettuce I get very loose stool and I can frequently see chewed-up-looking pieces of lettuce in it. To try to incorporate more veggies into my diet, I've been adding veggie purees to foods like mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese, but the puree seems to pass right through me as well. Maybe it's just me, but I don't feel like this is normal and, unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to afford to go in to see my doctor for a couple of months at least (and I'm hoping this problem won't require a prescription because I won't be able to afford it). If anyone has any information about this condition, I would appreciate hearing about it.

Hi PolarisId33,

I'd like to invite you to visit our Food and Cooking Community board with Elaine Magee RD as she has IBS and she may be able to shed some light on your digestive problems.

We have a number of related digestion health centers linked at the top of this board so please click on them including the Digestive Disorders Health Center .
