Hello, i understand as i have had ibs for 10 years now and im 21 years old and have been on several diets and had several tests and nothing has improved, i have also had pcos for a year now, and they do not combine well at all!i went on metformin as my weight raised up a lot and i needed to get it now, i have been on a very low carb diet with a lot of exercise and it went well until i became allergic to dairy and lactose, sucrose, everything ending in ose, i have been to more doctors, homeopaths, naturopaths, psychologists and so on. they have mentioned to be the specific carbohydrate diet, maybe look it up and see if anything comes up for youif you have any information that may be useful to me, please let me know we both know how hard it is.

Hi everyone, I just joined this group for support, though I've had IBS for several years now (IBS-A). I also have polycystic ovaries and am overweight because of it. I would like to lose weight, but these two conditions are contradictory as far as dieting goes - I was told to go low-carb for the PCOS, which involves eating a lot of dairy. As most of you can imagine, my tummy is NOT happy about this. My GI doctor told me for IBS to eat more starchy foods (pasta, etc.) that won't make me sick. So my choices are to be fat and comfortable or thinner but so bloated that no one could tell. Anyone else out there have these two (or similar) conditions? How do you manage it without making your self sick all the time, either through what you eat or the stress of worrying about it? I'm only 25 and want to make my life better, but feeling sick all the time is making me depressed. Thanks so much for any advice! - Blair
