I suspect you are right. Do you suppose I have bags under my intestines, as well? Mark
I have read that what you look like on the outside is a reflection of the insides--if you have excema or acne, so does your gut, in other words. If that is so, then whatever would excacerbate one would be a trigger, right? Don't know i beleive it totally, but to some extent it makes sense.

I wouldn't stress out over any food that may trigger it. Tomatoes are one of the best foods for you even though they are acidic. The skins are the most nutritious since they have lycopene and help you prevent cancer - http://www.lycopeneb...ebenefits.html. I'm 63 and an IBS-D patient for 25+ years. I eat everything and deal with the problem without medication. I'm much better now than in my 30's when I had diarrhea every time I ate. My only suggestion; be patient with your body and try not to take medication for your problem whenever possible (especially laxatives when constipated) . Diarrhea causes cellular damage in your gut however, it also heals itself fairly fast. An interesting finding - intestinal cells die and get replaced every 6 weeks or so. Good luck and please be kind to your body.
Wow, 25 years is a long time. What's the best advice you could give someone who is 24 and has had IBS-D for 6 years? I have D every day just now and I can't get it to calm down no matter what I do.
