Shares in EasyJet crashed this week after it admitted it was struggling to fill its planes. EasyJet attracted 2.9 million passengers in December, a 9.9 per cent increase. However, what sent the shares into a tailspin was news that the all-important load factor – how full the planes are flying – actually fell by 2.2 per cent to 78.9 per cent. EasyJet hopes to generate extra revenue this year from new baggage charges and fees from other services, but its own estimate of 20 per cent profit growth for 2008 looks ambitious. Sell.

I've had digestive problems since my early twenties, and have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and "non-functional dyspepsia". A couple of years ago, in desperation, I tried a blood test for food intolerance, although I consider the ailment faddish. It indicated a low-grade intolerance of wheat and dairy. To my irritation and relief, if I cut out wheat and restrict dairy, I can drop my medications and feel better than when taking them. Now a friend has suggested that I might have "leaky gut syndrome", which has a plausible-sounding explanation for food intolerance. But when I Googled it, none of the sites were mainstream medical sites, and most sold costly supplements. Is this a real syndrome or a marketing ploy?

I have read that loose, pale-coloured stools are a sign of fat malabsorption. I have had consistently yellow, foul-smelling stools (with undigested bits in them) for as long as I can remember. Also, after going to the toilet I often feel nauseous. What could be the cause? Does it mean that my body is deficient in "good fats" and vitamins?
