Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query and understand your concern.
Well, congratulations on being able to cut down your alcohol intake. That is wonderful to hear. But are you completely abstinent from it, or have you moderated the amount?
You are right; there is possibly a resetting within the body. However, the body does adapt things, particularly within the liver and gastrointestinal tract, after abstinence from alcohol and after setting withdrawal symptoms.
Alcohol mainly causes slowing down of the bowel and can cause various mineral and vitamin deficiencies, which could manifest even when alcohol is stopped. Therefore, I suggest some multivitamins that you must take for a month.
For bloating, I am sure, since you have been cutting carbohydrates and sugar in your diet, the part of gas production in the gut is secondary to the food we take in. Carbohydrate is one such food content that can ferment within the human gut and produce excessive gases.
There is a long list of foods with high FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols) content. And they should be avoided as well.
I suggest you take
1. Tablet Metoclopramide 10 mg thrice daily half an hour before meals for a two-week duration.
2. Tablet Revital (Copper, Iodine, Ginseng, vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D & E, Folic Acid, Calcium, Phosphorous, Zinc, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese) once daily.
With the food precaution mentioned above and with this medication, you will have your problem solved.
Update me in two weeks. If symptoms persist, I may consider suggesting you some investigations and some add-on treatment.
Low FODMAPs diet.Regarding follow up:
Follow up as specified.
