Flare Up.

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've started with a DD flare up again and don't know what to eat.

I know that I should be on a liquid diet but I can't eat canned soups

or any vegetables, nothing acidic or sugary, fatty food is out.

I don't eat meat. I feel very tired and weak so need something quick

to prepare. . Any ideas please . I can't have the vitamin drinks either..

I know, nothing left 😩

      I can't have slimfast or complan, it's all the added vitamins

      which give me a IBS flare. I remember my grandma

      used to have complan .

      Thanks for the thought x

      Hi Susan

      I do eat a little jelly. I'm starving for "real " food. Sigh !

      Do you make your own chicken soup ? I can't eat tinned

      because of all the additives.

      Wish I could find a bland soup recipe but I can't think what to

      put in it has I can't eat vegetables.

      Iam the same with my stew I can't eat it anymore I put it down to the beef and the rich gravy. I was thinking earlier the last time I hade diarrhoea was after eating a bowl of chicken soup maybe I should stay off it x

      Susan, if you read the ingredients in any tinned soup

      you will see they all have a lot of spices and other ingredients

      that are not good if you have DD or IBS.

      I steer well clear of tinned soup and anything with spices,

      I can't have beans or peas either.

      I can't have frozen foods either (except plain cod )

      They are all filled with rubbish !!

    I had some Meso soup the otherday (ate the veg but not the onions) which went down fine.

    The other thing that seems to work very well for me as a calming drink is fresh ginger (cut fine with boiling water) then add in manuka honey?

    good luck!

    I dont know if this will help you. I have had DD for the past 10yrs, but for nearly 2yrs i have taken Aloe Vera liquid twice a day 50ml each time. The only other thing that i have altered is Wholemeal bread, i try not to eat tomatoes but practically eat anything and everything, i do try and drink 2 litres of water or orange juice a day, i have had no problems at all, infact you would never know i had DD, but put a little extra weight on, no flare ups at all, hope this helps.

      Hi Barry

      I do have some Aloe Vera capsules, maybe I should start

      taking them again. I'm scared to try the juice as it can

      give you diarrhoea.

      I haven't been able to eat tomatoes for years or any salad .

      I do drink a lot of water. Most foods seem to upset me now.

      Thanks for your reply.

      Keep well.

      Hi Linda,

      I have never had the problem of diarhoea from the juice, when i bought it the shop the girl told me to build up the dose gradually, i guess you could try a small amount first, i would think it maybe something else and not the aloe vera. I do use honey on my poridge every morning, hardly drink tea much now, but i can eat most things now. I have been taking Busy B vitamins B12 and vit C, they are big tablets and turn yr wee bright yellow. I have never felt so good as i do now, loads of energy, very helpfull in my local health food store. I hope you solve it as i and many others know how you feel, it worked for me x
