I'm looking for an answer to the same exact question! I'm a type I diabetic with an insulin pump since age 7 and I'm now 46. I have struggled with consistent, recurring gas cramps, pressure and bloating all of my life-even before I was diagnosed. I've always wondered if there is a correlation between the two. i have had other issues with digestion, such as occasional bouts of nausea which seem to come out of no where and then once I have a bm it eventually goes away...sometimes too, along with the excessive gas pains, I get so ravenously hungry that I can't concentrate on anything until I eat-and I'm talking about a complete meal. This is all with eating a normal three meals a day and snacks in between. I've been having a lot more of it lately and it doesn't seem to matter what I eat either...Is there an answer?View Thread
