No stop. Go see your doctor.

You should consult a doctor any time you undergo a massive shift in diet. There could be things happening that you simply aren't aware of. Having a professional to tag-in just in case is smart.

Sorry if I'm coming across as pushy. I just don't want you to hurt yourself over something that could have been stopped by having a doc on board.

But the rest of us are entertained by your suffering so if you die, make sure to let us know.

He doesn't want to go to the doctor because the doctor will rightly point out that replacing real food with goo is silly.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Unless he goes to see a gastroenterologist specifically, odds are that much of what a doctor would tell him would be based primarily on their mistrust of things that they don't know about.

Primary care physicians are to medical specialists as IT help desks are to computer engineers.

I'd see a kidney doc IMO but I'm not a doctor. A GI is good though
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

i didn't die, but the soylent god is angry with me.


apparently i have gastric dumping syndrome, so when i drink soylent it just bypasses my stomach. i stopped soylent, because i felt it happening as i drank the stuff, like a cold snake wiggling into your abdomen. i become hypovolemic and hypoglycemic as a result of the insulin dump and had fire-rrhea within one or two hours.

i pretty much knew all this at the time, but i was just too afraid of dying to push on. i only have nine days of soylent left, so i'll give it a shot.

wikipedia is my god:

Gastric dumping syndrome, or rapid gastric emptying is a condition where ingested foods bypass the stomach too rapidly and enter the small intestine largely undigested. It happens when the small intestine expands too quickly due to the presence of hyperosmolar (having increased osmolarity) contents from the stomach. This causes symptoms due to the fluid shift into the gut lumen with plasma volume contraction and acute intestinal distention.[1] "Early" dumping begins concurrently within 15 to 30 minutes from ingestion of a meal.[1] Symptoms of early dumping include nausea, vomiting, bloating, cramping, diarrhea, dizziness, and fatigue. "Late" dumping happens one to three hours after eating. Symptoms of late dumping include weakness, sweating, and dizziness. Many people have both types. The syndrome is most often associated with gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y) surgery.

Rapid loading of the small intestine with hypertonic stomach contents can lead to rapid entry of water into the intestinal lumen. Osmotic diarrhea, distension of the small bowel (leading to crampy abdominal pain), and hypovolemia can result.

In addition, people with this syndrome often suffer from low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, because the rapid "dumping" of food triggers the pancreas to release excessive amounts of insulin into the bloodstream. This type of hypoglycemia is referred to as "alimentary hypoglycemia."

tomorrow i'll try mixing solid oats into the soylent along with some salt. i have fiber gummies, so i'll chow down on a couple beforehand as well.

With that reaction I would just eat normal food instead.

We're all glad you're alive!
