IBS D and fodmap try it

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have suffered with IBS D for at least 20 years.

Last autumn we went on a cruise and I had very little trouble. This led me to ask myself what has changed. I though perhaps it was dairy but that made no difference then maybe fruit we had a large bowl each evening. Cut fruit right out and was better but not perfect.

Thought I'd look at the fodmap diet. Kept avoiding it as don't like cutting food out. Anyway I've discovered wheat onions and garlic are my enemy and found sourdough bread a tasty alternative. I can eat wheat in cakes and biscuits but not bread other than SD.

My stomach is so much better and diarrhea has stopped. I won't say completely cured as these things have a habit of returning but fingers crossed.

Have a look on line easy to follow and this video is very good

    What sour dough bread do you buy.

    I am in the Uk, and can not seem to find SD bread.

    Very interesting post thanks

      Hi there

      You can buy sourdough bread from all the major supermarkets. I just happen to buy mine from Tesco but have also bought it from Sainsburys.

      Yes by all means keep in touch.

      Good luck it's a horrible condition isn't it.

      I've been covering my tracks for years for example making sure I know where toilets are en route.

      It is a horrible condition.

      I went for an endoscopy on Monday, it was awful.

      I have to go for an abdominal scan tomorrow.

      I have had IBS for 3 years, but it seems much worse so have to go for  these tests.

      It helps to come here and read what others are doing.

      Wish there was a group near me, it would be good to meet up with others 

      Who understand all this.

      Will keep in touch.

    Hey Patient you are absolutely right, I am also diagnosed with IBS, And with my observation with the food that I eat, I realized that I cannot tolerate wheat, Although I can eat any dairy products, So the key is to personalize diet for ourselves, Observe the effect of food after eating, It may take some months to know but once you recognize your trigger then you can be symptom free for longer period of time...

    One of the reason for that might be non celiac wheat sensitivity, which happens at any age and still some research to be done by the scientists in this areabiggrin
